Sukiyaki is a traditional Japanese meal, a variety of vegetables and thinly sliced beef cooked in a hot pot. Sukiyaki is perfect for family meals. Typically, a family will sit around the hot pot and talk about the day's events, enjoying their time together. Each family has their own style of sukiyaki, suited to their tastes, and you can experiment to create your favorite version of sukiyaki as well!
