Lancashire hotpot is a culinary dish consisting essentially of meat, onion and potatoes left to bake in the oven all day in a heavy pot and on a low heat. Originating in the days of heavy industrialisation in Lancashire in the north west of England, it requires a minimum of effort to prepare. It is sometimes served at parties in England, because it is easy to prepare for a large number of people and is relatively inexpensive.

Sounds the same as a crock pot to me.

yeah it sounds like the kind of dish you can make in a crock pot.

Anyone who isnt familiar with the dish of Chinese style Hot pot

it involves all the ppl at the table around an open bowl of boiling water where they add vegetables, and various meats to the water and lets them cook, and promptly take them out to eat on their own plates. also the boiling water is surrounded by a hot plate grill so you can cook your food that way too. Since the cooking water is communal, the various flavors mix and double dipping is frowned upon.
