You can make sweet and salty sukiyaki even without meat or sugar. The kurumabu makes this very hearty.
Usually I season our family meals very lightly. But sometimes you want a concentrated dish.
Adjust the amount of ingredients to taste. Use whatever vegetables you like! I used brown rice amazake as the sweetener, but you can use regular white rice amazake (without sugar) in the same way.
