Excellent! This recipe was great. I can't speak to its authenticity, but we loved it. I was quick and easy to prepare too! We made it with cubed chicken breast instead of the beef. The sauce really made this recipe. We may try it with a bit less suger next time, but it was good sweet too. I bought yakisoba noodles at the market, prepared them in a seperate pan and then added them at the end. I can't say enough about this recipe. It is definietly worth a try.

This is in no way an authentic Japanese recipe for Sukiyaki. It's more of a stir fry.

Not authentic and didn't taste anything like the real version of Sukiyaki.

While it tasted fine(skipped the MSG), this is in no way Sukiyaki. A simple search on google would have shown that.

This was very good. Since I don't keep MSG on hand, I didn't put any in the recipe and certainly didn't miss it. Next time, I plan to cut down on the amount of sugar. Overall, excellent!

As another reader noticed, this is a beef stir-fry and not Sukiyaki. MSG? Chicken broth? Use dashi stock with soy and mirin instead, or better yet, buy some warishita (sukiyaki cooking sauce).

Very easy and very yummy! Easy to change up and still tastes great!

My husband loved this. I've made it a lot because it's easy and quick. Hamburger works fine if you don't have the sirloin.
