Ahh the joys of shabu shabu. Dipping thin slices of fatty beef in to boiling hot water then dipping into deliciously savory sauces mixed with condiments of your choice (garlic, ginger, cilantro, hot sauce, ground peanuts, dikon, you name it they've got it) is one of the joys of living. Just talking about it makes my mouth water.
So if you thought you couldn't cook, shabu shabu takes all those doubts away. Some places have communal pots of boiling water over burners while others have individual ones ( I kind of like communal ones better because its a lot more fun when you have a large group of friends).
What a great excuse to round up a group of your best friends and enjoy meat, beer, and sake!
