Last fall, while talking to my dad's mom, I asked if Kevin and I could come over for sukiyaki one night during our California visit.
Now, my family's rendition of sukiyaki is completely different than the description found on Wikipedia. The explanation is simple - years ago, my grandparents were served this dinner by a missionary family, and over the years it has greatly evolved to what it is now. My grandma used to make it for my dad's birthday. It had been years since I had had it, and Kevin has never had it!
A large bowl or plate is essential. The order of the ingredients is equally essential. When I was young, a huge deal was made about the order. *Smiles*
mung bean sprouts
chow mein noodles
Soy sauce for flavoring
It sounds like an awful combination! But it is oh, so yummy! It brought back so many memories for me. Kevin was sceptical, but he enjoyed the meal too!
