Shabu Shabu Great Dish To Share With Friends
I love Shabu Shabu, a Japanese dish that is cooked and eaten at the table. It's a healthy one-pot dish that involves cooking thin pieces of meat and/or vegetables in broth and dipping them in a variety of tasty sauces. When cooked at the table, it's a very sociable experience.

Shabu Shabu Cooked At The Table
Shabu Shabu simply means Swish Swish - which is what you do when cooking this food.
What Is Shabu Shabu?
Wikipedia provides the following information about Shabu Shabu. "The dish is prepared by submerging a very thin slice of meat or a piece of vegetable in a pot of boiling water or dashi (broth) made with kombu (kelp) and swishing it back and forth several times. " Shabu Shabu simply means Swish Swish - which is what you do when cooking this food.
Cooked meat and vegetables are usually dipped in ponzu or "goma" (sesame seed) sauce before eating, and served with a bowl of steamed white rice. I have featured several special dishes on this pages that will add to the pleasure of the dipping sauce.
"Once the meat and vegetables have been eaten, leftover broth from the pot is customarily combined with the remaining rice, and the resulting soup is usually eaten last."
The familiar swishing sound is where the dish gets its name. Shabu-shabu directly translates to "swish-swish".
