1. Put lamb, celery cabbage, and soaked mung beans out on a platter.
2. Put shrimp and Chinese mushroom pieces and stock in a hot pot and bring to the boil.
3. Give each diner a long-handled fork, a Chinese soup bowl, a wire mesh strainer, and chop sticks. Put the desired dips in small bowls table-side so each diner can put what they want into their own soup bowl with stock, if desired and then simmer a slice of meat and some vegetables. Each can dip this in their bowl, and eat as desired, meat first, then vegetables, with or without their vermicelli. The raw egg cn be added at the end, if desired.
