This Japanese dish is very similar to a hot pot and closely related to sukiyaki, where sliced vegetable and thinly sliced meat are served traditionally with dipping sauces.

Shabu shabu is a healthy dish and very easy to prepare. It's a great meal for friends and family gathering where you can have relaxing dinner while cooking your own dish on the dining table.

Suggested serving equipment:

Suggested pairing drinks:


  1. Fill Shabu Shabu Pot three forth full with water and soak kombu dashi in the water for about 20-30 minutes
  2. Cut ingredient and place them on a big plate. Beef should be very thin slice.
  3. Put dipping sauce (Pon shabu and Goma Shabu) and steamed rice in small serving bowls.
    Add sauce condiment as needed to your pon shabu sauce.
  4. Place the ingredient plates and beef on the table.
  5. Set Shabu Shabu Pot on Iwatani Portable Gas Stove.
  6. Heat the water to boil and remove the kombu dashi.
  7. Now it's time to eat. Put sliced beef and vegetables into the boiling pot.
    Note: Now you decide on how you want your beef cooked, medium? Well-done? At this point you are the cook and remember not to put too many at a time as they might get overcook and less enjoyable.
  8. Dip the meat or a piece of vegetable in your favorite dipping sauce and eat. Some people enjoy it with steamed rice and udon/noodle
  9. Once the meat and vegetables have been eaten, leftover water (now broth) from the pot is customarily combined with the remaining rice or udon noodle, and the resulting soup is usually eaten last
  10. Have a great meal and enjoy!
