Butter Yakki

a couple of months ago for recipe club, Kristin did this & it was such a fun thing.  we have done it a couple of time since with my family & it is so yummy & a total blast.  it would be so fun & easy to make assignments for you guest & have a fun little buttayakki party for New Years.  Make sure you say it right... Buttayakki!

  • Butter!
  • Thinly sliced chicken, pork, beef
  • Shrimp
  • Shredded cabbage
  • Bean sprouts
  • Mushrooms (sliced)
  • Onions (sliced)
  • Other veggis: zucchini, yellow squash, green peppers, etc.
Each person gets a small bowl.  You place the items that you want into your bowl, then cook as you please on small hibachi grills (you can also just use pancake griddles).  Just melt the butter on the griddle & pile on & cook the items each person chooses.  Basically just keep cooking, eating, and talking - Fun!

Sauce: (This is what makes Butter Yakki so delicious!) 
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tsp crushed sesame seeds
  • 3 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 3 slices ginger (smashed)
  • 4 drops Tabasco
Bring ingredients to a boil and then place in small bowls around the grill.  Dip vegetable and meat in sauce and enjoy with sticky rice!
