Easy to Cook Japanese Recipe Sukiyaki (すき焼き)

This month`s Easy to Cook Japanese Recipe is Sukiyaki.

This is a world famous Japanese dish, but in Japan there are quite a few varieties based on regional differences. Cooking is always done at the table for this dish in Japan, and it is a great Party favourite.

Sukiyaki is usually served with steamed rice as an accompaniment.

Serves 4

Sukiyaki Sauce
• 1/3 cup caster sugar
• 3 tbsp mirin
• 1/3 cup soy sauce
• 500g dashi

• 600g Scotch filet or sirloin steak, finely sliced
• 1 packet momen (firm tofu), cut into small cubes
• 8 shitake mushrooms
• 4 spring onions
• ¼ Chinese cabbage
• 1 packet udon noodles, cooked and drained
• 4 eggs
• vegetable oil


1. Prepare meat, vegetable and noodles and place on a large plate.
2. Break eggs into individual bowls and lightly beat.
3. Make the Sukiyaki Sauce by combining all the ingredients.
4. Oil the pan and start cooking by sautéing the spring onion, add some of the beef, followed by small portions of the other ingredients and the sukiyaki sauce, a little at a time. Make space for further ingredients by pushing the cooked ones to one side.
5. As the food cooks, guests can serve themselves by dipping the hot food into the beaten raw egg and eating with a bowl of rice.

• Other ingredients can also be added to the dish such as enoki or shimeji mushrooms.

  1. Hi Lina,

    It is one of my favourites. I love it with good quality Japanese beef, cut into thin slices. They just melt in your mouth.

  2. Oh! You make me cravbe for some now! XD

  3. Yum! I got one of those gas burners with a view to making sukiyaki.....Do you know if Chrysanthemum leaves are available in Australia? That's a delicious addition to sukiyaki in Japan that I can't seem to get my hands on!

  4. Thanks Ms Chef, those burners are great for cooking sukiyaki and nabe at the table. Yes, in Japan kikuna is sometimes added to sukiyaki. I haven't been able to find it yet in Australia. Let me know if you do find it.
