Savory Shoyu Sesame Shabu Shabu Dipping Sauce

I recently threw a shabu shabu dinner party night that focused on delicious, fresh food cooked right there on the table- and accented with one of my favorite La Crema Pinot Noirs from the Willamette Valley.

Shabu shabu is a delicious, interactive, and entertaining dinner where everyone gathers around a hot pot to cook their own food- and is always accompanied by some seriously delicious sauces.

While a high quality ponzu sauce should always be a part of any shabu shabu, my favorite sauce by far is this delicious, salty, peanut-tasting (but completely peanut-free) Shoyu Sesame Shabu Shabu Sauce.

It is great on meat, vegetables… even rice! I could seriously drink this sauce I love it so much.

Shabu shabu is a delicious hot pot style meal that originates from Japan- and involves quickly cooking meat in boiling broth or water.

Shabu Shabu Dinner Party

Shabu shabu is a really fun party because it’s a completely interactive dinner- guests get to pick their own meals and cook them right there on the table.

It is impossible to not have a fantastic conversation and a ton of fun when around a shabu shabu pot – it’s a sure way to get the party started!

It’s also a really delicious meal, and pretty healthy, especially since it makes vegetables taste so good!

I seriously end up eating about three times more vegetables than meat when having shabu shabu- and that is not a normal occurrence for me!

I love how tender and delicious the vegetables get- but they still have a bit of snap and a super fresh flavor.

It is an irresistible meal!
