I love the internet!! I seriously don’t know how we survived before it. First of all, I got this recipe off the internet – where I find lots of recipes and inspiration. But also because there is so much information out there. I have to say that I didn’t know what “Sukiyaki” was before this recipe, or even after I made this recipe. But before I shared this with you, I thought I’d do a quick search to find out exactly what sukiyaki is. it turn out, this is not really a sukiyaki dish.
First of all, traditional sukiyaki is a one pot meal that is cooked at the table. It is made from very high quality beef, so the traditional meal is not an inexpensive one. And, everyone typically eats out of the one pot.
But even though this isn’t “traditional”, I still really enjoyed it. It was easy and fast, and pretty good for you as well. And I love that I learned a non-traditional way to make a traditional Japanese meal!
