Sukiyaki&Shabu-shabu

Sukiyaki01

Sukiyaki, which features thinly sliced beef in an iron hot pot along with other ingredients in a seasoned soy sauce broth, has been around since the 19thcentury and is one of the most popular beef dishes among the Japanese. Shabu-shabu, on the other hand, is a comparatively new Japanese dish in which the same ingredients used in sukiyaki are added to a broth in a hot pot. When the ingredients are cooked, they are dipped in sesame sauce or ponzu (soy sauce and citrus juice) prior to eating. The beef in both dishes is typically of the highest quality.
