For this week's Chopped Dinner Challenge, the chefs of Food Network Kitchen chose to feature the basket ingredient beef tip cap. The goal of this challenge was to cook something other than the typical roast, so the idea became an Asian-inspired soup. Traditionally hot pots of simmering broth are set at the center of a table, with each person dipping raw ingredients, like thinly sliced meats and fresh vegetables, into it for quick cooking. It's the type of comfort food that's meant to bring family and friends together over a shared meal. This Top Sirloin Hot Pot recipe is an easy at-home version that your family will love. It takes a total of 25 minutes to make, which is just what you want when you need fast comfort from the cold outside.

This recipe begins with a flavorful broth. Start by sauteing shiitake mushrooms in a little oil, and then add garlic and ginger, before pouring in the beef broth and seasoning with soy sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Check the seasoning once again before serving. You want this broth to be extra tasty so that it will flavor the toppings.

Next, cut the steak into very thin strips — or have your butcher do it for you. Divide the beef among four bowls and top with cooked rice. Ladle the broth over the bowls and top each with sliced cucumber, sliced scallion, sliced chile (if you like it hot) and kimchi. Serve with lime wedges.
