*This recipe was developed for the Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet for Yin Yang Hot Pot (EP-PFC20). Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.


Place water and kombu into one side of the Deep Pan of Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet for Yin Yang Hot Pot (EP-PFC20). Heat water and kelp 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.


Remove and discard kombu just before the water comes to a boil, then add soy sauce, mirin, sake and salt to taste.


When the water reaches a boil, add vegetables, meat and seafood one at a time. Turn down the heat to SIMMER. Skim off any scum that rises to the surface.


As the ingredients cook, prepare the optional dipping sauce and condiments. Serve ponzu sauce in individual small bowls. Add condiments to your preference.

Take cooked ingredients from the skillet, dip and enjoy!
