Motsu Nabe
is a hot pot dish made with beef or pork innards. Traditionally, the soup is soy sauce based with some garlic and mild chili pepper, cabbage, and perhaps some other vegetable added in to ensure a good mix of flavors, but sometimes miso is used instead of a soy sauce base. Slow cooking ensures that the texture is not too tough and the flavors are as delicious as can be. After eating up all the delicious meat and vegetables, “champon” noodles are often put into the pot to complete the meal.
