【英語】”Nabe” : 寒い季節が近づいてきました。鍋を囲んで温まろう!

“Nabe” 「鍋(なべ)」: Hotpot

“Nabe” is a Japanese one-pot dish where several ingredients are prepared together in a “Nabe” pot and cooked right at the dining table, often using a portable burner.  Meal participants would eat from the “Nabe” on the table by serving their own portion onto their individual serving bowls. “Nabe” pots are traditionally made of clay, which are called “Donabe”, but some dishes,such as “Sukiyaki” use “Tetsunabe” cast iron pots.

「なべ」は、食卓の上に多くの材料を入れた鍋を置いて、卓上コンロなどを用い作る料理を指します。食事の参加者は、自分が食べる分を鍋から自身の取り皿にとっていただきます。伝統的な鍋は陶器の土鍋ですが、すき焼きなど鍋料理によっては鉄鍋を用いたりします。

“Nabe” dishes are very popular during the cold winter season, as people can warm themselves by having the heated food directly from the boiling pot. A typical scene in Japan would be as in the second picture, where a family or close friends would circle around the dining table and eat from the single pot.

鍋料理は寒い冬の季節に好まれます。煮えている鍋から直接あたためられた食物をとって食べるので体も温まります。二番目の写真に見られるように、家族や親しい友人で食卓の鍋を囲んで食べる光景が典型的です。

A typical “Nabe” as seen in the first picture is called “Mizutaki”.  Ingredients such as chicken, Chinese cabbage, Welsh onion are cooked using a lightly flavored stock, mostly just with ”Kombu” seaweed .  When eating, a light dipping sauce such as “Ponzu” sauce, made primarily of soy sauce and citrus juice, is used to enjoy the taste of the ingredients themselves.  

最初の写真にみられるような典型的な鍋は「水炊き」と呼ばれます。鶏肉、白菜、ネギなどの具材が通常コンブのみで味付けられた薄味の出し汁で煮込まれます。食べる際は、ポン酢など薄味のつけ汁を用い、素材の味を楽しみます。

 

Other types of “Nabe” dishes use more strongly flavored stock, such as “Miso” base or sweet soy sauce base, having various other ingredients including meat, fish, eggs, vegetables,… These are usually eaten without a dipping sauce.

他の鍋料理では、みそベースや醤油ベースなどより濃い味の出し汁で作られるものもあり様々な具材が用いられます。多くの場合、つけ汁無しでいただきます。

 

There are wide variety of “Nabe” dishes enjoyed in Japan, also with lots of regional variations.
We would like to introduce some of them going forward.
