This is the last video shot when Francis was alive. Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.” Today, we are making Sukiyaki with chicken. Beef is usually used in sukiyaki but chicken is also delicious. Francis, let’s get started. First, let’s parboil the chicken. Slice the chicken thighs into bite-size pieces cutting at an angle. Make sure that each piece has about the same thickness. Place the chicken into a pot of boiling water. Lightly cook the chicken until the surface turns white. Remove and place it onto a tray. This will help to remove any unwanted taste and smell, making the chicken more delicious. Now, let’s make the sukiyaki sauce also known as warishita. Combine the soy sauce, sugar, sake and water. Add the dashi kombu seaweed. If the kombu is not available, simply leave it out. Turn on the burner. Stir to mix. When the sugar dissolves, remove the pot. Let it sit to cool and then remove the kombu seaweed. Next, let’s prepare the ingredients. Slice the long green onion using diagonal cuts. As for the shungiku, use the soft upper half of the stalk and the bottom part of the leaves. Here are the rest of the ingredients, enoki and shimeji mushrooms, grilled firm tofu and lightly parboiled shirataki noodles cut into shorter lengths. And now, let’s make the Torisuki. Pour the sukiyaki sauce into a shallow pot. Turn on the burner and bring it to a boil. Add the shirataki noodles, grilled firm tofu cut into 1.5cm (0.6″) slices and long green onion. Add the enoki mushrooms and shimeji mushrooms. Place the chicken into the pot. Flip the ingredients over and allow them to absorb the broth. The chicken easily becomes tough so avoid overcooking it. When the chicken is cooked, add the shungiku leaves. Lightly cook the shungiku in the broth and now the Torisuki is ready. Using a raw egg is an essential part of enjoying sukiyaki here in Japan. When you are not sure if your raw eggs can be eaten raw, consider using pasteurized eggs. Dip the ingredients into the egg and enjoy the delectable Torisuki. Delicious! You may also add udon noodles to the remaining broth and enjoy the last drop of delicious sauce. Good luck in the kitchen. We’ve received so many warm messages after Francis passed away and would like to thank all the viewers once again. Francis was an invaluable figure and we just don’t feel right to continue the show by replacing him with another dog. We will not be able to make new videos as before but hope we can still introduce occasional recipes. Thank you so much for your support.
