What is Yakiniku

Posted October 31st, 2009 in Food No Comments »

Yakiniku is Japanese style indoor BBQ.  We use a table top hot plate, and cook meat, seafood and vegetables on it.  We cook on the table, and eat from the table.  One the food is cooked, pick it up and dip in a sauce (or sometimes with lemon juice, salt, miso sauce etc) then eat!  

I do yakiniku often at home, because there is no much preparation for it.  I just need to cut meat and vegetables, then it’s dine.  After that I just sit back, turn on the tv and relax while enjoying yakiniku on the table in front of me.

Mainly I use yakiniku sauce as dipping sauce which I buy from a grocery shop.  (Ebara brand is the popular one in Japan)  It goes with any meat such as beef, chicken, pork, as well as vegetables and seafood.  For beef tongue, I prefer eating with just a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt.  It’s delicious.

I sometimes enjoy yakiniku with ponzu sauce.  Add grated daikon radish into ponzu, it becomes very refreshing.

Enjoy with steamed rice, or just few beers. 🙂
