How to Create a Delicious Mini Hot Pot at Home: Step-by-Step Guide

Q: Can I use different types of meat for this recipe? A: Yes, while this recipe uses beef, you can substitute it with your preferred meat type. Q: Is it necessary to marinate the beef for 30 minutes? A: Marinating for 30 minutes ensures the beef absorbs the flavors, but if short on time, a shorter marinate can still work.

Homemade Mini Hot Pot with Marinated Spicy Beef


  • Beef: 500g
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Sichuan pepper powder: 1 spoon
  • Cornstarch: 1 spoon
  • Egg white: 1
  • Coarse chili powder: 3 spoons
  • Variety of vegetables: as needed
  • Bay leaves: 2 pieces
  • Star anise: 2 pieces
  • Hot pot base: 1 block
  • Dried chili: 10 pieces
  1. Soak the beef in saltwater for 30 minutes, rinse and slice. Add salt, Sichuan pepper powder, cornstarch, and mix well. Then add egg white and continue to mix. Finally, add coarse chili powder and marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare hot pot balls and a mushroom platter (choose as per preference). Clean and cut the mushrooms.
  3. Once prepared, arrange the sliced ingredients on a plate.
  4. Ensure fish slices are properly prepared.
  5. Heat oil in a pot, sauté bay leaves, star anise, dried red chilies, and hot pot base. Pour in bone broth and let it simmer.
  6. It's recommended to avoid loose-packed balls as they might be made from offcuts. Homemade ones are cleaner and tastier.
