One of my all time favorite menus, especially on a cold night during any time of the year.  Chinese hot pot is like a fondue but with a beef broth rather than the more traditional oil or cheese.  Therefore it is lighter and really savory.

Given hot pot is not something usually served at a dinner party, everyone always loves it, and you will receive many accolades.   I always feel embarrassed because you invite people for dinner, and they actually cook their own meal.  You just do the shopping and chopping.

If and when you make this more than once, you can start experimenting with various dipping sauces, different vegetables and get creative with table settings around the theme.
