Shabu-Shabu Is the Ultimate Japanese Meat Fest | Food Skills

  • Published on Jun 26, 2017
  • When it comes to Japanese hot pot, there are two distinct schools of thought: sukiyaki is a sweet, slow-simmered love affair, while shabu-shabu features savory slices of beef cooked rapidly in boiling water. Shabu-Tatsu on E. 10th Street is one of the only spots in NYC where Japanese food fanatics can get their hands on both dishes. Most importantly, the restaurant serves paper-thin cuts of prime rib and marbled wagyu, making Shabu-Tatsu the perfect destination for sizzling meat dunked in umami-packed dipping sauces.

    I didn't read all the comment but I'd say yakiniku (BBQ) is the ultimate Japanese meat fest. I lived in Japan for 6 years and some of the cuts of meats, marinades and condiments are amazing!

    Shabu shabu is too expensive. The meat has to be good one since it's eaten medium or raw. It not clean actually to shard the pot with other people. I prefer sukiyaki.

      I had to go back and start watching from the beginning because I didn't realize there was text on the screen I was supposed to be reading. Also, "Shabu Shabu" is onomatopoetic, for a sound of stirring and sizzling. "To shake" is furu in Japanese. Not sure where that translation came from.

    I recently tried Shabu-Shabu for the first time and it was amazing. I love how you essentially create the broth as you cook the ingredients, and get to eat it while you cook too. In the end, you're left with a perfect broth you can dump your noodles into.
