How to Eat Sichuan Hot Pot | Food Skills

Hi, my name is Yu Li, and I am the owner of
Tang Hot Pot in Chinatown. Hot Pot is one of the most popular cuisines
in Chinese culture. You put a simmering soup in the middle of
the table, and then you can choose different flavors of broth. The one we serve at Tang Hot Pot is the spicy
beef tallow broth. You cook it with beef fat and a lot of Chinese
ingredients and spices, like chili peppercorn, star anise, dry chili, and goji, so it really
has that complex flavor that is unique in Sichuan hot pot. This is actually our signature Tang Pot. Inside is the pork bone broth cooked with
chicken, and outside is the spicy beef tallow. The first thing you would do in hot pot is
pick a dipping sauce. The traditional dipping sauce that is matched
with the spicy broth is sesame oil. Here you see our Sichuan Adventurer Platter. We have swamp eel and pork blood, which people
might have never heard of in a restaurant before. But if you want to taste authentic Sichuan
cuisine and see what they really eat there, this would be the platter you order. I always recommend that people put in the
vegetables first, because it takes the longest time to cook, and so the vegetables won’t
absorb the flavor of other ingredients. After I put in the vegetables, the next thing
I recommend is putting in the meat and the organs. I just put in the beef tongue. Dip it nine or 10 times until you don’t see
any red on the meat. It might be a little spicy. The next thing I would put in is the beef
tripe, which is also called beef stomach. It’s one of the signature dishes in Sichuan
cuisine. Eight seconds and then this is good to eat. The meat I’m putting in now is prime ribeye. Since the meat is so fresh and premium you
only need to put it in for eight or 10 seconds, and then you can eat it. I like to eat my meat in the clear broth,
so I can get the most taste out of the meat. At last, I recommend putting in the pork blood,
the swamp eel, and the chicken gizzard. It’s better to eat them after you boil them
for two or three minutes, so they can absorb all the flavor that’s already in the soup. I recommend people put the seafood in after
meat so the broth won’t taste like seafood. Last, I would put in the starches, like the
vermicelli noodles. Any starch will absorb all the flavors and
thicken the soup. But everyone has their own way of cooking
hot pot. I’ve been going to Chengdu and trying hot
pot since I was little, so I had the flavor in my palate. When I moved to New York, I felt like this
was something that could open the whole hot pot experience to people who had never had
hot pot before. It’s good for going out with friends and family. You guys are all cooking together, and there’s
a lot of teaching. That’s what I try to bring to New York from

    my god… I am so hungry right now!

  5. Jason F Posted on January 17, 2018 at 10:45 am

    That's a small ass pot. Shits probably $100 for that tiny ass bowl. In China, you get a gigantic bowl and quadruple the items for $30-$50.

  6. RottedDollFace Posted on January 17, 2018 at 11:06 am

    I would love to try this hot pot one day. He is also very handsome.

  18. IND 007 Posted on January 17, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    Disgusting. Very Unhygenic as people are dipping and eating from the same hot pot.

  20. Robert Drawdy Posted on January 17, 2018 at 9:28 pm

    The real hot pot isn't like this.This is more like the spicy soup.

  25. DevoxNZ Posted on January 18, 2018 at 8:18 am

    What happens to all that broth, after you've cooked the meat in it?

  26. thETast8 productions Posted on January 18, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    Obviously NOT a dining experience for the Double-dip-phobic

  27. AlmightyFhonghoulle Posted on January 19, 2018 at 1:16 am

    Can somebody tell me what that mushroom bundle was that he put in near the beginning? I tried it once, but never got the name. Thanks!

  28. La_Dragon Studio's Posted on January 19, 2018 at 4:32 am

    At first I thought it was a pot of roaches.

  29. See Thomas Howl Posted on January 20, 2018 at 3:39 am

    Looks too busy. Cook my chit and bring it to me.

  30. dingo Posted on January 20, 2018 at 4:13 am

    Damn, such a different way to eat but it looks fuckin amazing. Also, this dude seems dope as fuck

  32. Berial92 Posted on January 22, 2018 at 4:00 am

    i can honestly not believe that there are "how to eat" videos on youtube. put it in your face and chew, it's not that difficult.

  33. Colin Jones Posted on January 22, 2018 at 6:09 am

    I kept thinking…what he is saying about Sichuan style hot pot is off, then I heard he was going to Chengdu and eating it and it all became clear…Chengdu hot pot is Chongqing hot pot's wimpy cousin.

  34. Alexander Popov Posted on January 22, 2018 at 6:37 pm

    Crazy!! I went to school with this guy !!!!

  35. Zhang X Posted on January 23, 2018 at 3:21 am

    Ummm… Not as authentic as I thought…

  36. __s___j Posted on January 23, 2018 at 4:08 am

  37. Amon Lieutenant Posted on January 23, 2018 at 4:27 am

    OMG…he is FUCKING CUTE!!!!  he's def got my pot HOT!!!!

  38. FoodforThought Posted on January 23, 2018 at 10:12 am

    Why are Mainland Chinese so rude and uncivilised?

  39. Kimo Kaeo Posted on January 23, 2018 at 8:02 pm

    Fuckaaa I'm hungry already lmao

  40. whateverpbk Posted on January 23, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    They put the entire animal in there which is of course the same thing that's put in to hot dogs of the cheapest kind. Better packaged though.

  41. George Washington Posted on January 24, 2018 at 5:20 am

    Use your arse, what can I recommend

  42. Cohesive Arcane Posted on January 24, 2018 at 4:08 pm

    You should invite the FoodRanger onto your show now since you did a thing about the hot pots. YouTube him, he has a good food channel.

  43. st00pkid4 Posted on January 27, 2018 at 8:07 am

    What's the music that starts right at the beginning of the video?

  44. Thomas Lisankie Posted on January 28, 2018 at 4:09 am

    I want to try this next time I'm in NYC

  45. SephirothSaber Posted on January 28, 2018 at 9:35 am

    Am I the only one wondering the music they used?

  46. Skerdy Posted on January 28, 2018 at 10:38 am

    yeah… uhh… one of the reasons I go to a fucking restaurant is for them to… I don't know… cook my fucking meal or something?! And you are telling me I have to boil the shit myself?! So why the actual fuck I am actually paying you for?!?!

  47. Niels Hoof Posted on January 28, 2018 at 12:01 pm

    I read szechuan

  48. Mister Fister Posted on January 28, 2018 at 7:14 pm

    do you guys shit blood? if i eat this kind of shit i get hardcore gastritis.

  49. vince snetterton Posted on January 30, 2018 at 2:54 pm

    mmmmmm, spicy animal gizzards. dog food

  50. chinus Posted on February 1, 2018 at 12:52 am

    From Chengdu, Sichuan, I am actually so impressed on many levels about this guy! The hot pot looks very authentic, including the ingredients and the fact they use sesame oil as dipping sauce (not every Chinese knows this, only in Sichuan). What is more, they improved the hot pot experience for western customers by introducing a well selected sets of food material, very friendly and the food presentation is also on the top level compared with hot pot restaurants in Sichuan. Well done, hats off !

  51. AN. Chavez Posted on February 1, 2018 at 2:05 am

    No manches! Yummy I want!

  52. Noura M Posted on February 2, 2018 at 1:25 pm

    is this expensive

  53. Roaming Thereal Posted on February 2, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    Owner of a hotpot is a noob. Putting greens into your soup first soaks up the fat, they should go end near the end with your noodles.

  54. Frank Garrett Posted on February 3, 2018 at 1:13 am

    Would be good without the mushrooms, tongue, tripe, gizzards, and the other nasty shit. Would be great with just a lot of steak.

  55. And I Posted on February 5, 2018 at 5:17 am


  56. InstantChildBirth Posted on February 5, 2018 at 4:11 pm

    Tripe is as gross as it looks 🙁

  57. Arkey Posted on February 5, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    hot pot is SO FUCKING GOOD. its expensive to go out all the time though and to eat enough to sate my ravenous hunger. If you buy the materials yourself you can get all the goods at a korean mart for about 20 bucks and enough to feed 5-6 people or yourself 5 times. compared to spending like 40 dollars for the average 1 meal where u have to stuff urself with rice and still leave hungry. Check western super markets for the more obscure meats, gizzards, tongues, etc are cheaper there because white people don't really eat it, therefore discounted heavily.

  58. Adam Rivera Posted on February 20, 2018 at 9:41 am

    did he say… pork blood?

  59. G THE GOAT Posted on February 23, 2018 at 4:41 am

    Every weekend I and my wife setup hot pot at home and can't stop eating. After the busy week we truly deserve a hot pot.

  63. Justin Kaipada Posted on March 14, 2018 at 12:01 pm

    We need more cuts in the scenes

  64. GL HF Posted on March 15, 2018 at 3:14 am

    Clearly not hot enough. More chili plz.

  65. Vikey Posted on March 17, 2018 at 5:30 am

    What's the background music at the starting of the video ?
    Can somebody tell me please ??
    That music is driving me mad

  66. Ivy Yang Posted on March 22, 2018 at 4:24 am

    No that's not the correct order. Sichuan people would never cook vegetables first.

  67. gore_connoisseur Posted on March 23, 2018 at 2:38 am

    This type of restaurant should more common in America

  76. Trubbish Posted on April 11, 2018 at 12:26 pm

    "I recommend" THIS IS WHAT I LIKE TO HEAR! Fucking hate those buzzfeed videos where its like "You are doing it wrong this is how you have to do it"

  77. ram rod Posted on April 17, 2018 at 6:38 am

    I just ate this in LA. It was delicious.

  78. BM03 Posted on April 22, 2018 at 10:06 am

    All of that is very strange to me. I'd LOVE to try it!

  79. greencyborgninjadude Posted on June 1, 2018 at 12:17 pm

    i had it, was kinda underwhelmed because the spicy was the "numb ur mouth" , still very filling

  80. evatheevil Posted on June 14, 2018 at 4:43 am

    He's so cute 💜💜💜

  81. Meng X Posted on June 28, 2018 at 4:36 am

    Nice video! If I was in town, I'd love to try your hot pot. Anyway, I've been working and living in China for almost 15 years and currently living in Chongqing for the last 8 years. Chongqing is the birthplace of hotpot and at almost every corner, there is a hotpot restaurant. Compared to Chengdu style, Chongqing hotpot is more spicy and numbing. Chengdu hotpot tends to be a bit more sweet. Sadly, I'm currently trying to lose weight and at the same time control my gout attacks (lots of purines from the soup, meat and organs) so hotpot is on hold for a while. I do miss it heavenly. As for my Chongqing wife, she cannot live without hotpot. She needs to eat it at least once a week! Until my health gets better, I'll be dreaming of my next hotpot meal. 🙂

  82. opwave79 Posted on August 3, 2018 at 1:58 am

    Thank you so much for the recommended cooking times! Really helps.

  84. Curtis Farmer Posted on August 15, 2018 at 6:41 am

    I wonder what they do with the good parts of the animal in China. "Save me the tongue and shit tubes, give the ribeye to the dog to fatten him up for later!"

  85. SayLa Travel Posted on September 3, 2018 at 5:28 am

    Can u tell show how to make chilli sauce recipe

  87. Lars Westerhausen Posted on September 23, 2018 at 8:43 pm

    Love it, but more chilis in the hot broth please. It needs to be way more red. 😉

  88. Angie The 272 Posted on November 26, 2018 at 6:49 am

    I went to hotpot once with a friend.
    She was double dipping her chopstick in every bowl and even served me with her used chopsticks. I was more nauseas of her table manner than the $70 bill. #Unfriended …forever!

  89. CaptainHorn Posted on December 19, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    googling "Sichuan hot pot near me" now lol.

  91. BMW W. Posted on February 18, 2019 at 5:54 am

    Im guessing if you eat a lot of this spicy hot pot…the dump u will take afterwards will require restoring your drywall in the bathroom. New fixtures..paint etc

  92. Kabar Terkini Posted on June 1, 2019 at 4:07 am

    What name of that pan??

  93. Travis Schwartz Posted on July 4, 2019 at 4:22 am
