Sukiyaki is one of my favorite dishes.
Sukiyaki is essentially a Japanese stew of beef, tofu, noodles, vegetables, and mushrooms. And I adore it. It calls for thinly sliced meat that's simmered in a soy sauce soup base that is just...comforting and delicious.
I use the Cooking With Dog
recipe, that uses these ingredients:For the sukiyaki sauce:
- 100ml Sake (2/5 u.s. cup)
- 50ml Mirin - A Type Of Sweet Rice Wine (1/5 u.s. cup)
- 50ml Soy Sauce (1/5 u.s. cups)
- 2 tbsp Sugar
I've also had success with the premixed sukiyaki sauce, though sometimes it's a tad too sweet so I mix it with regular soy sauce. Other ingredients:
- Chinese Cabbage
- Negi - Welsh Onion
- Shungiku - Edible Chrysanthemum
- Shiitake Mushrooms
- Enokitake Mushrooms
- Seared Firm Tofu
- Ito Konnyaku - Konjac Cut Into Noodle-like Strips
