Story Behind this Recipe
For lunch! Simple and delicious sukiyaki rice bowl. Make it with cheap cuts of meat.
Add the meat once the other ingredients are about 60% cooked through, so that it won't be overcooked. The Japanese leek will also get mushy if overcooked, so add it in last and just let it simmer briefly. The wheat gluten and shirataki noodles will soak up the sauce.
