Sukiyaki is also one of the most internationally recognized Japanese cuisine.
I don’t actually remember having it so often.. To me, This type of dish was more like special occasion dish. When my dad had just got bonus or someone part of my family established something. As a celebration we set up this meal. This may be just because of the ingredients. We put lots of slices of well marbled expensive beef at least four servings(me bro. dad and mom)… For middle-classed family, that’s not something we can have it at all the time…
But this time I would like to introduce this dish in more like casual style! It doesn’t have to cost so much to enjoy! You can prepare as small portion as one or two. This meal is actually rather healthy. Because you can add lots of vegetable including tofu and less meat. What you put is very much up to you. Make your own Sukiyaki!
