Servings 4 people
Ingredients for Sukiyaki Sauce:
- 2 tbsp sake
- ¼ cup mirin
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- ¼ cup soy sauce
Ingredients for Sukiyaki:
- ½ block firm tofu cut into ½” thick slices
- 5 dried shiitake mushrooms rehydrated
- 1 package enoki mushrooms with ends trimmed and rinsed
- 2 cups napa cabbage cut into 2” pieces
- 2 cups tong ho (chrysanthemum greens, washed)
- 2 scallions with white and green parts separated
- 1 bundle dried mung bean vermicelli noodles
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 12 oz. thinly sliced fatty beef
- 2 cups dashi stock (or mushroom soaking liquid or chicken stock)
- 2 cups steamed rice
- 2 egg yolks
In a pot on your stove, add 2 tbsp. sake, ¼ cup mirin, 1 tbsp. brown sugar and ¼ cup soy sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Make sure all sugar is dissolved. Then turn off heat and transfer mixture to a bowl.
Prepare all sukiayaki ingredients including tofu slices, shiitake mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, napa cabbage, tong ho and scallions. Set aside on a plate. Soak dried vermicelli noodles in water for 10 minutes.
Heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil in a pan. Fry white parts of the scallion in the oil for 10 minutes. Chop green parts of scallions finely and set aside.
Add sliced beef to the pan with the scallions. Sear the beef for 10 seconds and add a drizzle of the sukiyaki sauce. Fry the meat until it begins to brown; it should still be a little bit pink. Remove from pot and set aside.
Add the rest of the sukiyaki sauce and 2 cups stock. Bring to a boil. Add tofu, mushrooms, napa cabbage and tong ho to pot in sections. Drain vermicelli noodles and add them to the pot. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Simmer until the ingredients are cooked through 5-7 minutes.
Remove the cover, add the beef back to the pot. Sprinkle with chopped scallions and enjoy with rice and egg yolk (if desired).
