Shabu Shabu(Japanese Beef Hot Pot)

Shabu shabu is a hot pot similar like sukiyaki.It is cooked and eaten at the table with the other ingredients and is a great treat for the family .It is said that the name "shabu shabu"came from this swishing action.It only need to be cooked for a few seconds .You can make it at home with minimal ingredients.This is my way of preparing it..


300 grams beef

3 shiitake mushrooms

1200ml Water(5 us cups)

2 pcs of 10x10 Kombu Kelp

50 ml sake

A pinch of salt

2 tbsp Ponsu(citrus flavored dipping sauce)

100 grams Chinese Cabbage (Hakusai)

80 grams Itokonyaku noodles


Slice hakusai  and shiitake to desired size.Get hot pot and pour on 1200 ml water.Add Konbu kelp to make dashi(stock).Remove after dashi seems to blend with boiling water and the pinch of salt.Add shiitake,hakusai and itokonyaku noodles to the pot.Get the beef and swish beef into hot pot with boiling water til cooked.Dip in ponsu and enjoy it with rice along with the cooked vegetables and itokonyaku noodles.
