(courtesy of Chrisie Yabu, Japanese home cook in Reno. Serves 4)

16 ounces tofu, firm or extra-firm
1 ounce dry shiitake mushrooms
1 napa cabbage
7 ounces shirataki yam noodles
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 cup water
1 package beef, thinly sliced
1 package pork, thinly sliced (meats may be substituted with thinly sliced chicken, peeled shrimp, or mild fish)
6 ounces pink or white kamaboko, sliced
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
1¼ cups bean sprouts
2 cups Yamasa or Kikkoman low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup mirin
2 tablespoons sugar
Dash of hondashi bonito soup stock (optional)
1 8-ounce can water chestnuts (optional)

To prepare, cut tofu into 1-inch slices. Rehydrate shiitake mushrooms (about 5) or slice white mushrooms. Cut napa cabbage into 2-inch pieces. Rinse and drain shirataki yam noodles, bean sprouts, and water chestnuts (if using) and set aside.

In cast-iron pot, combine soy sauce, 1 cup water, mirin, sugar, and a sprinkle of hondashi (optional). Bring to boil and reduce to medium heat. Add meat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add tofu, shiitake mushrooms, Napa cabbage, green onion, yellow onion, bean sprouts, and water chestnuts (optional), and cook 8 to 10 more minutes, reducing heat to low when mixture comes to boil.

Serve with steamed Japanese rice. Garnish with remaining chopped green onions, raw egg, or red ginger (optional).
