Buy sukiyaki broth in a bottle from the asian food aisle in a regular market or a local Japanese Market. You will also need a traditional sukiyaki pot like the one in the picture, which you can also find at a Japanese Market. If you cannot find one, you will need to use a shallow pot.
Slice one large brown onion. Add to pot with small amount of olive oil, heat until softened.
Add 1 part sukiyaki broth to 1 part water. Add either more broth or water to taste. Bring to a boil.
Add napa cabbage, carrots, Tofu, Shitake mushroom, Green onion, Shimeji mushrooms and whatever you like to pot and wait until cooked. This shouldn't take long, about 5-10 minutes depending on how soft you like your vegetables.
Add beef sliced specifically for sukiyaki (found at local Japanese Markets). I used Kobe Style beef which can be pricey but I totally recommend. Cook until done.
Remove from stove and serve immediately with rice.
