  • The cooked shabu soup is able to be kept for about 2 days in the sealed container at 1-5 °C. If it is not cooked yet, it is able to be kept for about 1 week. To keep it longer than 1 week, make it more concentrated by decreasing the amount of water to 210 ml.
  • The unscliced stewed pork belly can be kept for 5-7 days in a well sealed container at 1-5 °C. If it’s already sliced, it will be able to be kept for 1-2 days. If you’re not intending to cook it yet, it is recommended to not slice it yet, as its shelf life will get shorter.
