You can use any kind of red meat or even chicken or seafood in this recipe. Although if you use seafood or chicken, you don’t need to marinated them for so long. I use frank steak— sliced and marinated with garlic, white pepper, light soy sauce, and eggs. I kept it marinated over night in airtight container in refrigerator so it’s packed with flavors and super tender when I used it in the recipe.
There are various kind of vegetable you can use in sukiyaki, Chinese kale, water spinach and cabbage are great for it. A handful of celery gives a wonderful flavor and fragrant to the dish. I only use cabbage in this recipe because it’s the only vegetable left in my fridge at the moment. If you have other vegetable, throw them in and let them mellow into something wonderful together.
When it comes to flavor, sukiyaki sauce is the key in this recipe. Sukiyaki sauce has a unique pungent flavor. It is made with oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, chili sauce, and sesame seeds.
