The ojiya looks good -- made w/ leftover risotto? Or did you cook the risotto in the broth? One of those fine lines again between okayu and ojiya. BTW, I've always wondered which regions in Japan use ojiya. I've always used zosui - it's rare that i hear ojiya. Is your wife from a region where ojiya is the more common term?

That seems like a very rich and diverse broth for shabu-shabu that you posted earlier. Do you add other ingredients after you're done with shabu-shabu to make a soup? Or do use an ingredient rich broth like that for shabu shabu? Do you still dip meat into the broth or do you just dump meat into the broth/soup like sukiyaki?

I've never had ingredients in the shabu shabu broth before. Interesting - I may try that someday. Usually at home, we'll make sukiyaki. I only have shabu shabu when I go out (in Japan, not stateside) - it's usually too expensive to go often. I don't make it at home because I can't get the sauces right. It's just not the same as the one the restaurants serve.

If you're dipping meat into the broth w/ all the other ingredients, what do you do about the aku? Do you leave it be? Seems like it would be hard to skim off....?

Zosui is awesome at midnight after a night of drinking..... Helps minimize the futsuka yoi. Smile

ETA: looks like some aku in the pot - so I'm guessing the pot has all the ingredients from the get go and you just dip the meat into it.

Not sure what this is. Never heard of it before. But it looks delicious. Eat it with bread? Serve with rice? Man, I'd like to try that. Looks very rich and creamy.

konata -- I have no idea what you're talking about, but I bet that I would really enjoy going out to dinner with you and letting you order.

Doing this on my phone, so will try to catch everything...

We called it risotto for simplicity sake. We added cooked rice to the broth to make it.

We're talking Tokyo area.

The broth was amazing. Started with cold water and konbu. The depth and breadth came from all the veggies that went in. The meat is dipped and shabu-shabu'd and then enjoyed with ponzu or sesame sauce, as well as the veggies.

Very good question about the aku. We skimmed most of it but there is a lot of value in it, so it's a bit of a tradeoff... we have a fine strainer ladle and use a bowl of water to clean it off.

Shabu-shabu is pretty much the same for drinking. It's more usual to dump in the rice at the end to make the ojiya, but we enjoy it with the meal, so made the risotto the next day.

Good analysis. The veggies went in after the konbu broth was started in the pot. Of course, we had them along with the meat.

You should make this at home. My wife was saying that this is not able to be done at a restaurant and this is true home flavor.

Feel free to email me, if you like.

Thank you. Tuesday works for me. Tako Tuesday? Smile

Interesting - in all the time I've spent in Tokyo, I've only heard ojiya a few times. It's standard Japanese? Or something like edo-ben? Not a big deal - just curious. Smile

I'll try this homestyle shabu shabu - it'll be a first to me. I didn't grow up in Japan so I only have had shabu shabu in restuarants. Home style version is very interesting. I'd appreciate some tips on how to make various sauces. I've got ponzu but I have challenges making the other types of sauces one might find in a shabu shabu restaurant in Japan. It's also hard to find a local butcher who will cut beef shabu shabu thin. What cut do you use? I'd probably use New York - even for shabu shabu, I'd like something with lots of marbling.

But essentially this sounds very similar to sukiyaki with some minor tweaks to ingredients.

Shabu shabu, sukiyaki, yose/chanko nabe, niku jaga, buta jiru - winter is a great home style comfort food season. Smile

Been making a lot of different jige's as well.

I'm not being critical but for some reason (I don't know why), when I look at that, I want to say chow mein instead of yakisoba.

But now I'm suddenly craving Osaka style okonomiyaki. For which the closest thing around here that I can get is probably a Korean style seafood pajeon


Just now seeing this.

Interesting observation. I think we probably don't follow recipes exactly so that might be why? Funny also that chow mein and yaki soba pretty much translate into the same thing...

We make okonomiyaki sometimes and I think a lot of folks here would like it.

As for seafood pajeon, absolutely love that!!!

Chow mien and yakisoba. La mien and ramen. Prefer the latter in both cases. Translate the same but the taste is very different. But there are some great Chinese soup and dry noodles beyond these two. Beef noodle soup and jajyangmein come to mind. Also their pork mustard green noodle soup. Oh and pau moa with a side of beef xien bing (spelling?).

Konata,
Think maybe you can start off with ponzu and "goma shabu" bottled sauces.

We're fortunate enough to have a Japanese market within an about an hour drive for the thinly sliced meat, which is sold frozen. It would be tough for a butcher to slice raw that thin. The trick is to well chill it in the freezer then slice it. You can get a circular slicer fairly reasonably.

Ojiya might be Edo shitamachi? Okayu can be made starting with uncooked rice, which might be the difference you sought?

It's flipping cold here in Michigan, right now, which might explain our sudden increase in interest in warming dishes Wink



ETA: re the above, agree that the tastes are very different!
