... presenting the loudest burgers created in my kitchen up to now:

Click the image to open in full size.

Why loudest? Well, I triggered the smoke alert in the living room while frying the meat.

Turned out that given a room height of approx. 3m, climbing on a chair and jumping up and down is not sufficient to reach the smoke alert. Also turned out that pushing its button with a stick does *not* reset the alert. Also turned out that it takes quite long to find the appropriate ladder in the dark attic.

Finally turned out that women do not approve loud alarm sounds late in the evening for extended times. Ouch.

... I guess it was some pun related to my username. 'Rind' means 'cow' or 'beef' in German, and 'raus' is like 'out'. Both together sound similar to 'Rundmaus'. There, 'rund' is 'round' and 'Maus' means 'mouse'.

I need a beer.

EDIT: Never mind, I just Googles Chinese fondue and up came pictures of what you showed. I thought hot pot referred to a crockery style pots that came to your table sizzling all to beatin' hell, but with no heat source like a fondue.

Nice thing about food is you never stop learning.
It was traditional Sichuan Hot Pot broth with both hot and mala "numbing" peppers (supposedly so you don't notice till it's too late). They did also have some scraps of lamb and decent squid for it too. You throw in what you want family style.

"Rind(vieh)" has two meanings in German, same with "rund" here.
One meaning is cow, the other refers to the required talent to charcoal a hamburger.

(and it rhymes with rundmaus)
