    Chankonabe ("Sumo Stew")

    From Wikipedia (because I find this quote amusing):

    Source: wikipedia

    Chankonabe (ちゃんこ鍋) is a Japanese stew (a type of nabemono or one-pot dish) commonly eaten in vast quantity by sumo wrestlers as part of a weight-gain diet.

    Basically a chicken broth with a load of meat, vegetables, noodles, rice, whatever you have on hand.

    To the surprise of no one, I loved this. The kids liked it, too. Healthy, tasty, filling...it's looking like it'll become a staple around our house.

    What a funny coincidence. I started watching Hinomaru Sumo yesterday, and they mentioned Chankonabe in the first, or second episode.

    Something makes me think there might be a minor difference in degree here.

    Are there particular spices or seasonings that are distinctive to this dish?
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    This is the recipe we used. Though there's no set recipe, miso, soy sauce, and kimchi are most often used.

    You could, although as I understand it, four-legged animals are typically avoided for reasons of tradition.
