Is it spring yet? Well, we are all sick of the cold weather but what better way to warm ourselves up with MOTSUNABE? What’s motsunabe? It is a nabe (hot pot) from Fukuoka! Motsunabe is prepare with beef or pork intestines, cabbage, garlic, tofu, scallion, and soup. There are variations in the soup base: salt, soy sauce, miso, and spicy miso.
