Quick Donabe Pot-au-feu

I made a very simple pot-au-feu with my soup & stew donabe, "Miso-shiru Nabe".

This is my Miso-shiru Nabe. The best cooking tool for braising.

I sauteed some pancetta, garlic cloves, and minced onion with the butter. Then, potato and carrot are added.

Savoy cabbage was just cut into large wedges and topped on the ingredients after the chicken stock was added. After about 10 minutes, I seasoned the broth and topped it with some green beans. It was simmered for additional 3 minutes and my pot-au-feu was ready.

After a busy tiring day, this simple pot-au-feu made my body so happy and relaxed. With this donabe, all the ingredients were perfectly cooked and developed deep flavors in such a short time of cooking. The simple ingredients can make such a delicious comfort dish.
