Wowa’s Sukiyaki Recipe!
I pack beef, sukiyaki cut
2 pcs leeks (green onions), sliced crisscross
1 pack shiitake mushroom, soaked and sliced into 4 pcs.
1 pack enoki mushroom (long with small heads) (My favorite! -Nana)
1 block tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 small head napa cabbage, sliced
1 pack udon noodles or if sotanghon (soaked until softer)
2 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1/3 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
1/3 cup mirin (Ma, what is this? -Nana)
2 Tbsp sugar
½ cup dashi stock or water
½ cup sake or ¼ cup tanduay rhum (Kampay!! Hehe! -Nana)
- Heat a sukiyaki pan or pan big enough to accommodate all ingredients. Add oil.
- Sear beef slices in the pan spreading one at a time. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp brown sugar over the beef; add sukiyaki broth when the color starts turning brown. (Do not pour all sukiyaki broth, just enough for the set.) When done, push beef to the side and add the rest of the ingredient side by side in the pan. Cook about 10-15 minutes.
- Adjust seasonings by adding more soy sauce and/or sugar. If salty, add water little by little. Taste should be less salty and sweet.
- Suggest use a portable stove on the table. Eat the ingredients as cooked, replenishing the ingredients and broth when reduced.
Gets niyo? Ako kasi hindi! It’s too complicated for me! The Sukiyaki when cooked should look like this:
Good thing Wowa taught my house angels how to cook this. I’ll just buy the ingredients so they can make it at home =)
WOWA: Ang liit ng mga lutuan mo anak. Meron ako dun sa condo. Kunin mo. Malaki yun.
Apart from “May pera ka, anak?”, my mother likes to tell me to get her cookware, dishes, appliances etc in her house. If I follow her every time she says that, malilimas ko ang laman ng condo niya.
Thanks Wowa for the recipe! Thank you also for being a great mom and Wowa to Anika and me.
We love you!
