Last time we went the lame way with pre-made sauce but this time, we made the sauce as we go! The real way to do sukiyaki!
Prepare your usual ingredients (napa cabbage, enokitake, shiitake, shirataki/konyaku, etc.) , cut them up and whatnot.
Be sure to rinse them too.
Beside soy sauce, these are the two main ingredients for the sukiyaki no tare– mirin and sake. The latter is a must… >_>
Mix the soy sauce, mirin and sake (just pour it in by feel and adjust it later) over low heat.
Taste to see if the mixture is good.
Bring out the stuff!
Can’t forget the meat!
Add the ingredients in the order you see above. Cover with lid to let it cook.
Rice is done!
I love rice… I can’t feel full without it.
Once it begins boiling, check on it…
Oh yea! It’s good!
Add the meat last since they take no time to cook. Guess I did it wrong last time by cooking it first ^^;.
Sukiyaki is done!
Raw egg for dipping the meat in. Besides changing the texture a bit, there wasn’t much flavor added to the meat… (blah blah raw eggs… eww… bad!… blah blah blah… Get over it. who cares? :P)
My miniature sukiyakidon ^^
Pot is empty? No problem. Repeat everything until you’ve exhausted all your food supply!
And here’s a shot of Disaronno Sour to chase down all that food afterward.
Sukiyaki is fun with friends and effortless to make (though preparing the ingredients is not…) so I recommend you to try it out just for the heck of it. This is the meal for winter!
Which would you prefer? Sukiyaki or sukiyaki?
