Japan has its own variety of nabe dishes, similar to fondu or bouillabaise, that are cooked in a single pot at the dining table. Sukiyaki is the classic of this genre. A sukiyaki skillet is ideal, although a large frying pan may also be used.

Sukiyaki is perhaps the most popular Nabe menu in Japan. Thinly-sliced beef is cooked in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin along with vegetables and tofu, all cut in bit-sizes. It is typical to dip the cooked ingredients in a bowl of raw beaten egg before eaten, to add roundness of the flavour.
