Sukiyaki (すき焼き) is one of major Japanese menus that may be suitable for entertaining important guests. As a typical Sukiyaki dish, beef, tofu and vegetables are cooked in a shallow pot which can be shared by around 2 to 6 people. For pot soup, soya sauce (shoyu 醤油) and sugar are used as ingredients and it tastes a bit sweet. Sukiyaki is likely to be served by pot or cooked in front of guests on a table.
After it is cooked, broken raw eggs are used as dip sauce for Sukiyaki. Don't worry, in Japan all eggs distributed in markets meet enough high sanitary standards that allow consumers to have them fresh and without cooked.
