Print this Recipe    Sukiyaki 01


1 piece beef suet, 2" x 2" x 1/2" (enough to lightly grease hot pan)
1 Lb lean beef, sliced paper-thin across the grain, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 bunch scallions, cut into 2" lengths, both white and green parts
1 small white onion, peeled, halved and sliced thick
1 block fresh tofu, cut into bite sized squares
12 oz can shirataki (yam noodles) (optional)
16 oz can of bamboo shoots, sliced thin
1/2 Lb. fresh bean sprouts
8 fresh brown mushrooms, sliced about 1/4" thick
1/2 c soy sauce
1/2 c sugar
1 c water
2 T sake, mirin or dry sherry

Combine the soy sauce, sugar, water and mirin in a bowl or pitcher.
Stir well, set aside for cooking/serving.

Heat skillet until the suet sizzles when it touches. If the suet
does not sizzle, remove it and heat the pan further. Move the suet
around the pan, putting a coat of oil over the whole surface.
Place about 1/3 of the sliced beef in a corner of the pan, mix it
about a bit to brown for about 1 minute. Add the vegetables, 1/3
of each in their own 'corner' of the pan, except the scallions.

Pour sauce over these but not so much that the vegetables are
swimming (about 1/2 the sauce). Bubble for 4-5 minutes, gently
turn everything over and place scallions on top in a neat pile.
Bubble 4-5 minutes more and it is ready to serve.

Carefully place 1/4 of the meat in each person's bowl. Then immerse
the scallions in the pocket you have just created in the skillet.
Serve the other ingredients and by the time you have served all,
the onions/scallions should be wilted and cooked just right. Spoon
a bit of sauce over all. Start the next batch of sukiyaki when
the first half of the dish has been served.

Sukiyaki is generally served with rice.

To be totally authentic people serve themselves out of the bubbling
mass in the center of the table (on a hot dish). Each person has
a little bowl with raw egg in it. You take the boiling hot item
from the central cooker, and dip it in the egg. This transfers
the heat to the egg so you don't scald your mouth.
