Sukiyaki (すき焼き)

I know Sukiyaki,  the song- a beautiful, sentimental song translated from a popular Japanese song but I had no idea what a sukiyaki dish was, I did have a vague childhood recollection of it as sauteed meat and veggies but I can’t quite remember the taste.  I recently had sukiyaki from a Japanese resto and [...]
