The cast iron sukiyaki pot

This is a cast iron sukiyaki pot. Sukiyaki is a japanese dish that is cooked in cast iron, on a portable burner, right at the table.

It's rough translation is "hot pot." Sometimes it's called "nabemono," meaning "one pot."

Actually, nabemono is a broader term to include soups and stews, and sukiyaki is a specific dish.

There are no sukiyaki pots from a brand I trust, but a medium sized Lodge skillet, or the Old Mountain pie pan, are similar dimensions and should work.

Don't worry about trying to find a lid, because most of the sukiyaki pots I saw, do not come with one.

Sukiyaki generally has beef or pork, cabbage, mushrooms, scallions, tofu, noodles, soy sauce, and other ingredients unfamiliar to me.

There's some instructions on how to cook sukiyaki here, and a good looking recipe here.

I've never tried nor made sukiyaki, but it does sound like a fun activity.
