Dip the sliced meats and vegetables in the simmering broth one at a time or in small batches; chicken and beef should cook for 30-60 seconds. Serve with the dipping sauces.

Sesame Dipping Sauce: Toast the sesame seeds and puree all ingredients in a food processor or blender.

Garlic Dipping Sauce: Stir together all ingredients until the sugar is dissolved.
