Beef sukiyaki recipe
Japanese Sukiyaki Recipe, My husband used to live in Japan for two years and learned how cook some of the yummiest Japanese food I’ve ever had. On New Year’s eve, we decided to have something really delicious and we knew just what to make. Sukiyaki literally means “Things that you like cooked” (at least that’s what my husband told me). So we cooked things that we like, okay, love. We got some tritip meat sliced really thin at Safeway, tofu, shiitake mushrooms, some noodles, etc.

I am so grateful that my husband can cook. Certain things I just ask him to cook or bake because I know they will taste better if he did. :) We used Korean japchae noodles and they were really good in Sukiyaki.

We own a Sukiyaki pot so we used that but you could use a large skillet or pan to cook sukiyaki if you’d like.

Sukiyaki Japanese 

The traditional way to eat Sukiyaki is to dip the meat or other ingredients in raw egg before eating. However, since I am not a huge fan of that idea, I skipped it. The sauce was really good, sweet and delicious. :) It reminded me of Korean bulgogi.
