#519 Sukiyaki

This nabe style hot pot dish is famous inside and outside of Japan.

Typically, the hot pot is stewed on the table with fresh ingredients.

The base is soy sauce, mirin and sugar – creating a typical Japanese flavor.

It is usually made with beef and vegetables.

After the pot is cooked, you dip the hot food into a bowl of raw egg.

If you’re thinking “the word sukiyaki sounds weirdly familiar” I know why…

It’s also the name of a famous song – it sold 13 million copies world-wide and even hit the charts in the US in 1963.
