Sukiyaki 101: Kanto vs Kansai Style

Kanto-style Sukiyaki:
Also known as “gyunabe” or beef pot. The pre-mixed sweet warishita broth is poured and heated in the pot with ingredients like beef, vegetables, and tofu. This style is more refreshing and easier to prepare.

Kansai-style Sukiyaki:
Simply known as “sukiyaki”. There is no pre-mixed broth; instead, the pot is heated with butter and the beef slices are grilled until half-cooked, then sugar and other condiments are added to flavour the beef. Vegetables are added next. The flavour is richer, and this style allows you to adjust the flavour to your liking.
