Sukiyaki すきやき

Sukiyaki すきやき

My mom is from Kansai area so even though I grew up in Kanto, we typically eat Sukiyaki Kansai style at home. Kansai style sukiyaki cooks the beef first then the rest of the ingredients as well as the broth is added. By cooking the beef on the cast iron pot, it caramelizes the meat and provides an extra dimension to the taste. Don't buy the ready made Sukiyaki sauce from supermarket since they tend to be too salty. Try making your own sukiyaki broth today.

Taiwanese Hot Pot and Homemade Meatballs

Taiwanese Hot Pot and Homemade Meatballs

My husband introduced me to the wonderful taste of Taiwanese Satay sauce after we got married. Japanese hotpot is usually cooked in a flavored broth and the food is enjoyed as is. Taiwanese hotpot is different because not only is it cooked in a flavored broth, the food is also dipped into the hotpot dipping sauce after cooking to enjoy. The taste is pretty amazing blending in the perfect amount of spice mixed in with sesame oil, soy sauce, and vinegar. If you enjoy Thai and other Southeast Asian food, you'll probably love the dipping sauce just like me.
