Not Johnny’s Steamboat, but Aznique’s..... *wink*
We had a steamboat dinner last night, but it wasn’t at Johnny’s. Instead, it was at Aznique in USJ! Did I just open up a steamboat restaurant? Nope! We had the steamboat dinner at home, Aznique style! LOL! *grin*
I felt like having steamboat after having a simple steamboat lunch at my office on Friday upon the invitation of a friend. She had made it look so simple that I had to give it a try. So, on Saturday after the visit to IKEA, I went grocery shopping at TESCO.
In place of a proper steamboat pot, I used the rice cooker, and poured water mixed with chicken stock, a little salt and pepper. The rest are quite easy. I just prepared our favourite vegetables of pak choy, sawi, 2 types of mushrooms, chicken and beef pieces, crab meat, fish balls, glass noodles, and mee. For the dipping, I bought a bottle of Thai chilli sauce which was really good!
It was a simple but great dinner and the whole family enjoyed it!
I still have some of the vegetables and meat left over. I might serve another round of steamboat for dinner in a day or two.
