Sukiyaki is a Japanese dish that is prepared and served as a kind of hot pot.
It consists of thinly sliced beef which is simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a shallow iron pot in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin. The ingredients are usually dipped in a small bowl of raw, beaten egg after being cooked in the pot, and then eaten.
Generally sukiyaki is a winter dish and it is often enjoyed at Japanese year-end parties.
Typical ingredients to go alongside the beef are shiitake mushrooms, tofu, leeks, chinese cabbage and konnyaku.
