In a small bowl, add sliced pork and Shaoxing wine. Mix to combine.


Place water into one side of the Deep Pan of Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet for Yin Yang Hot Pot (EP-PFC20).  Boil water while cooking another hot pot in the other side. Set temperature to HIGH.

*Be sure to add water or other liquids like soup stock to both sides when cooking with the Deep Pan. If one side is empty while cooking, the nonstick coating may be damaged by the heat.


When the water reaches a boil, add the hot pot base with spices and stir to dissolve.
