Thai Food Recipe - How To Make Sukiyaki, Thai Style Soup

Updated on January 18, 2011

Traditional Sukiyaki is a Japanese "Hot Pot" soup, made with meat and various Asian vegetables. In Thailand the dish is similar, however the Japanese dish focuses more on the broth. The Thai style version is much quicker and easier to make. This dish is very popular in Thailand, and it is often served at dinner parties and social events. M.K. is a famous chain of "Sukiyaki" restaurants that has locations in every major city in the country. This restaurant chain is very popular with middle and upper classed Thais, you can find an MK Restaurant in almost all the major shopping centers in any city. The recipe below is for a soup similar to what is served at an MK Restaurant.


How To Make Sukiyaki

Making Thai Style Sukiyaki is actually quite easy. You do need to make sure you get fresh vegetables, and good quality beef. The beef doesn't need to be expensive or a tender cut., but it does need to have some marble and fat, and it needs to be thinly sliced as in the photo. You might not be familiar with a few of the Asian vegetables, so I attached photos and I have labelled them for you. You will want to use an electric wok with a lid, so that you can serve directly from the wok at the dinner table. This is how it is done in my home in Thailand.


300 grams of sliced beef
1 Carrot - sliced
1 Onion - sliced
250 grams of Shiitake mushrooms whole
250 grams of tofu
2/3 cup of chopped cabbage
100 grams of Enoki mushrooms
1 cup of chopped morning glory
100 grams of Pak Choi (Chinese cabbage)
2 cubes of chicken oxo
1 package of glass noodles
1 larger turnip chopped

Cooking Instructions:

1: In a large pot, boil the turnip, carrots and chicken oxo for 30 minutes

2: Drain the water from the pot into a large wok

3: Bring the water to a boil and begin to add the meat and vegetables.

4: When the vegetables are almost cooked, add the glass noodles.

5: Turn off the heat source and let sit for a few minutes.

6: Serve in a bowl with Suki sauce (sweet spicy Thai chili sauce)
