About the Dish:
Shabu-Shabu is a popular Japanese hot pot dish that features thinly sliced meat and an array of fresh vegetables cooked in a flavorful broth at the table. The name Shabu-Shabu comes from the sound the ingredients make when being swished around in the hot broth. It’s a fun and interactive dining experience, perfect for gatherings or special occasions.

- Step 1: Prepare the broth by bringing a large pot of water to a boil. Add kombu seaweed and dried shiitake mushrooms for extra flavor. Let it simmer for 15 minutes, then remove the kombu and mushrooms.
- Step 2: While the broth simmers, arrange the thinly sliced beef and assorted vegetables on a platter. Keep them refrigerated until ready to cook.
- Step 3: Heat a tabletop burner and place the pot of broth on it. Allow the broth to come to a gentle simmer.
- Step 4: Each person at the table can now take turns swishing the beef and vegetables in the hot broth using chopsticks or a small wire mesh strainer. The ingredients should cook quickly, just a few seconds to a minute.
- Step 5: Once cooked, dip the pieces of beef and vegetables into your preferred dipping sauce, such as ponzu or sesame sauce, and enjoy with a bowl of steamed rice.
- Step 6: Continue cooking and enjoying until all the ingredients are consumed.
- Step 7: If desired, add the leftover broth to cooked rice to make a delicious porridge.
