SUKIYAKIwith Wagyu Beef slices
“Sukiyaki (すき焼き)” one of the best known and popular Japanese hot pot dishes which is cooked and served at the table similarly like the Shabu Shabu. Generally Sukiyaki is a winter dish and it is commonly found at bōnenkai, Japanese year-end parties.
It is a very traditional Japanese dish that is served in the Nabemono (Japanese hot pot) style. Sukiyaki gets it flavour from all the ingredients that are slowly cooked in the pot. The soup base can be a simple mixture of soy sauce, sugar and mirin.
The ingredients consist of meat (thinly sliced beef), vegetables, tofu, mushrooms such as shiitake and enokitake, onions, etc. High grade Wagyu beef is recommended for Sukiyaki, as the fats and wagyu flavour is slowly absorbed by the other ingredients as you slowly stew the Wagyu in the pot.
The Wagyu beef is normally cooked to about 70% and it is dipped into beaten raw egg before eating.
