Chanko Nabe (Sumo Hot Pot)

Chanko nabe is a kind of stew or hot pot known as the original sumo food. Despite sumos being known for their huge statures, the chanko nabe itself is a well-balanced meal, but the sumo wrestlers eat it in such vast quantities that it does pack on the kilos. There is no fixed recipe for the chanko nabe; you can add beef, salmon, pork or anything you like. If you’re looking for a hearty meal this winter, it’s hard to go past the comfort of chanko nabe – just be sure to eat it in moderation!
