Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 1/2 pounds thinly sliced beef (purchased from an Asian market)
  • 8 ounces nappa cabbage, cut into 2" chunks
  • 1 package (about 8 ounces) shirataki (Japanese yam noodles) or 2 ounces of bean thread
  • 8 fresh shiitake mushroom caps, cleaned and stems removed
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and cut into 1/4" thick rings
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tender leeks, washed, trimmed and white parts cut diagonally into 1/2" thick pieces
  • 1 block firm tofu, cut into bite-sized 1 1/2" cubes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or 2" cube of beef suet

Cooking Sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup ichiban dashi (Japanese broth) or water
1

Combine all ingredients for the cooking sauce in a small pan and cook over low heat until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is simmering. Remove from heat, cool and refrigerate until ready to use.

2

Put shirataki in bowl and rub with 1/2 tsp. salt. Rinse and put in a pot with hot water. Boil for 1 minute, drain and rinse under cold water. Cut into 4" lengths. If using bean thread, soak in hot water until soft, drain and cut into 6" lengths.

3

Arrange the beef attractively on a large platter and all the prepared vegetables, noodles and tofu on another. Have the sauce mixture ready in a small pitcher and bring everything to the table.

4

Turn the Gourmet d' Expert® Electric Skillet to 460°F. Add vegetable oil, or grease cooking surface. When the temperature reaches 460°F, pan-fry 12 slices of beef for 30 seconds, then push meat to the side and add leeks and onions. Cook for 1 minute, then pour soy sauce mixture over meat.

5

Add in vegetables and other ingredients. Add a little more sauce to cover ingredients. Boil for 1-2 minute until vegetables are tender. Reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer. Each guest serves themselves, dipping food in beaten raw egg before eating with rice.
