Transcript:How to Make Beef Shabu Shabu

Hi, I’m Mamie Nishide of The Japanese Cooking Studio in the New York area here for About.com. Today I’m going to make Shabu Shabu.

Beef Shabu Shabu Ingredients:

  • 1lb rib eye beef, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1 oz kelp
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 package enoki mushroom
  • 1/2 head hakusai cabbage
  • 1 bunch Tokyo green onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 bunch mizuna or shungiku, cleaned
  • 1 package kudzukiri
  • 1 package silken tofu, sliced into eights

Yuzu Soy Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon yuzu juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dashi from cooking shabu shabu

Shabu Shabu Garnishes:

  • 1/2 cup grated daikon radish
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 4 teaspoons Japanese grinded seven hot pepper

Peanut Sesame Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup sesame seed
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dashi from cooking shabu shabu

Heat Kelp Water and Mix Dipping Sauces for Shabu Shabu

In a donabe, which is large clay pot, add water and sake to 2/3 full. Add kelp and soak it for 30 minutes. Bring the kelp water to almost to the boil. Take out the kelp. Kudzukiri, I soaked in water for 2 hours. Nice and soft, so easy to cook it.

Making yuzu soy dipping sauce: mix all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Making peanut sesame dipping sauce: mix all the ingredients and mix well.

I’m going to show you how to prep garnishes. Scallions, take off the stems, thinly sliced. This is the Daikon radish. Peel first. I use a grater. Red Pepper.

Serve Beef Shabu Shabu with Hot Kelp Water and Sauces

Set up a portable stove on a table with hot kelp water in a clay pot. Set up the plate of beef and vegetables. Cook beef and vegetables in the clay pot for your desired doneness. Serve with two dipping sauces and garnishes. Your dipping sauce, dip it and enjoy it.Thanks for watching. To learn more, visit us on the web at about.com.
