Easy Sukiyaki Recipe

Sukiyaki (すき焼き) is a very popular hot pot dish, especially in the winter. People often have sukiyaki dinner parties or eat it at restaurants. Everyone enjoys cooking it together at the table. There are many varieties, but basic ingredients include; thinly sliced beef, grilled tofu, thick, long, green onions, shitake mushrooms, and shirataki, which are clear, gelatinous noodles made from a kind of potato. Other common ingredients are carrots, hakusai(chinese cabbage), and udon noodles. Sugar is added, so the meat has a slightly sweet taste. Each person at the table has a small bowl with a beaten raw egg. They take what they like from the pot, dip in the raw egg and eat. When the pot gets low, just re-charge with fresh ingredients and stock. It makes for a great party. You can get the sukiyaki stock from a local Asian grocer.
