Japan Class Series - Sukiyaki March 17, 2018

About Sukiyaki

Sukiyaki is a Japanese hot pot dish that is typically served during the winter but is excellent year round. It consists of thinly sliced meat which is slowly cooked or simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a Nabi cast iron pot in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin.

The ingredients are usually dipped in a small bowl of raw, beaten eggs after being cooked in the pot, and then eaten.

History of Sukiyaki

The literal meaning of sukiyaki is "grilling on a plowshare”.Several cookbooks from the Edo period describe a sukiyaki which consisted of fish or fowl grilled on an iron ploughshare over a charcoal fire.

Prolonged contact with the West during the Meiji era popularized the consumption of beef, and sukiyaki developed in its current form.
