It's a very popular hot one-pot meal in Japan as one of typical Japanese Winter Recipes.
The main ingredient is thin sliced beef, and it is simmered in a skillet or pan in the sukiyaki sauce with many vegetables and other ingredients.

Taking herewith YouzTube Video regarding "How to make Sukiyaki".

How to Make Sukiyaki (Japanese Beef Hot Pot)



1 piece beef suet, about 2" x 2" x 1/2" (enough to lightly grease hot pan)
1 Lb. lean beef, sliced paper-thin across the grain, then
     cut into bite-sized pieces
1 bunch Scallions, cut into 2" lengths, both white and green
1 block of fresh tofu, cut into bite sized squares
1-12 oz. can of shirataki (yam noodles)
    (This is optional—they may be very expensive)
1-16 oz. can of bamboo shoots, sliced thin
1/2 Lb. fresh bean sprouts
8 fresh brown mushrooms, sliced about 1/4" thick
1/2 c. Soy Sauce
1/2 c. Sugar
1 c. Water
2 T. Sake, Mirin or dry sherry


Heat skillet until the suet sizzles when it touches. If the suet does not sizzle, remove it and heat the pan further.

Move the suet around the pan, putting a coat of oil over the whole surface.
Place about 1/3 of the sliced beef in a corner of the pan, mix it about a bit to brown for about 1 minute.
Add the begetables, 1/3 of each in their own 'corner' of the pan, except the scallions.
Pour sauce (see recipe below) over these but not so much that the vegetables are swimming (about 1/2 the sauce).
Bubble for 4-5 minutes, gently turneverything over and place scallions on top in a neat pile.
Bubble 4-5 minutes more and it is ready to serve. Carefully place 1/4 of the meat in each person's bowl.

Then immerse the scallions in the pocket you have just created in th skillet.
Serve the other ingredients and by the time you have served all, the onions/scallions should be wilted and cooked just right.
Spoon a bit of sauce over all. Start the next batch of sukiyaki when the first half of the dish has been served.


Combine the soy sauce, sugar, water and mirin in a bowl or pitcher.
Stir well, set aside for cooking/serving.

Sukiyaki is generally served with rice.

Also, to be totally authentic people serve themselves out of the bubbling mass in the center of the table (on a hot dish).
Also, each person has a little bowl with raw egg in it.
You take the boiling hot item from the central cooker, and dip it in the egg.
This transfers the heat to the egg so you don't scald your mouth.
