Sukiyaki is a type of hot pot dish known for its sweet and salty flavour, a Dashi broth seasoned with soy, sugar, and mirin. Similar in concept to Shabu Shabu the main difference being for shabu shabu the broth is a simple dashi and the meat and vegetables are dipped afterwards in a soy based dressing.

Sukiyaki and shabu shabu are home style dishes traditionally served at the table for the guests to cook their Wagyu beef slices to order but here we simply serve from the kitchen directly into the warmed serving bowls, the selection of vegetables can alter to suit both the seasons and each household’s individual palates. 

Method for the broth
  1. Place all the ingredients for the broth into a deep saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  2. Gently poach the vegetable garnish in the broth then add the cooked  noodles or vermicelli.
  3. Finally poach the beef in the broth ideally at the table over a low burner for a few seconds and serve straight away.
To serve
  • Divide the beef and vegetables equally served over freshly steamed rice with Wasabi and or chili oil on the side for dipping.
