Sukiyaki (Japanese Beef Hot Pot)

   

Sukiyaki Recipe

Check Out: Shabu Shabu Recipe

Sukiyaki (鋤焼/すき焼き) is a Japanese dish in the nabemono (Japanese hot pot) style. It consists of thinly sliced beef with other ingredients such as tofu, negi, mushrooms, jelly noodles and cabbage. The sauce is made up of sake, mirin, sugar and soy. When eating, Japanese often dip the ingredients in raw beaten egg. Cooked udon or soba is added at the end to soak up the remaining broth. It is extremely easy to whip up at home and a perfect dish for beginner cooks. It’s always quite expensive when one orders it at Japanese restaurants with a few measly slices of beef, so making it at home is affordable (with better quality of beef) and effortless.


Cooking with Dog video for Sukiyaki on YouTube

Recently, I have been hooked on cooking Japanese, largely because I was inspired by Cooking with Dog, a cooking channel on YouTube. The tagline of the show reads “It’s not what you think” – i.e. it’s not cooking with dog meat, but cooking with a dog as your host – the videos are narrated by a male poodle named Francis in perfect Japanese-accented English. While the chef (a human, in case you are wondering) is demonstrating how to cook the dish, Francis sits obediently behind the counter as he “voice overs” the steps of cooking. He sounds earnest and sincere with encouraging words such as “It’s so easy, even a dog can do it” (aww). With so many cooking videos out there, trust the Japanese to be one step ahead in terms of creativity in their presentation to stand out among the rest. Of course, this wackiness will not hold on its own had the recipes not been rock solid good – the steps are clear and the dish is always beautifully presented. I felt so inspired that I finished  all the videos within 2 days. The first dish I tried out was this Sukiyaki.

    Sukiyaki is my absolute favorite! We (fairly) often do Japanese Night at home. We make sushi, miso soup, rice, salad, tempura, we recently (finally) added sukiyaki to the mix, and I just made Mochi for the first time. I could eat it every day – but without the egg! Looks beautiful. :)

    Will check out the video when I have more time. The sukiyaki must be intensely delicious.

    The video sounds very creative (ie: getting the dog to narrate the thing). When are we going to see a series of videos from the noobcook?

    I love sukiyaki too! Thanks for the sauce recipe, I usually buy the bottled ones but definitely prefer homemade :)

    U r so right that it is easier and cheaper to make it at home than to go outside! I love how simple u make this sound.. and how healthy it is when I was reading the ingredients.

    I too love sukiyaki and have tried home made version” only once. It is definitely cheaper at home and you could probably get better cuts of meat as well.
