Porridge Steamboat @ Home

Plain porridge steamboat
One of the weekends, MIL decided to make steamboat. Instead of the normal soup based, she decided to substitute it into plain porridge. I remember having this porridge based steamboat in OUG years ago and find it quite creative.

 
Some of the ingredients 
MIL made some Foochow fishball (fishball with minced pork fillings) upon FIL's request. Taufu is our favourite (adults and kids) and it is a MUST have item in a steamboat. We also had 'yau char kuey' but it is not in the picture.
 
My favourite ~ crabby !
The first thing I dig in was the crab ! My all time favourite. It was finger licking good.

Cheers !
To add in the 'kick' into our steamboat, we had some beers. SIL recommended this brand as she said smoother and not that bitter comparing to the others. It was an enjoyable meal even we were all soaked in sweat !
