Sukiyaki (すき焼き) is a Japanese hot pot dish that consists of meat and vegetables slowly simmered in a mirin sauce. After cooking, the ingredients are usually dipped in a small bowl of raw, beaten eggs and then eaten.
The term "sukiyaki" comes from "suki," or spade, and "yaki," meaning grilled. The dish became a part of Japanese cuisine at the end of the Edo period in the 1860s, during a time when beef was banned. Edo farmers would cook fish and tofu on their spades, though now the dish is most commonly made with thinly-sliced beef. It is considered a meal for special occasions, like year-end parties, because of its price and the premium quality of the beef used.
We invite you to make your own sukiyaki with the help of our intern, Emily Knick, who will be teaching her favorite sukiyaki recipe. Emily is currently a student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, majoring in Linguistics and Japanese.
