  4. Place about ⅓ of the sliced beef in a corner of the pan, mix it about a bit to brown for about 1 minute.
  5. Add the vegetables, ⅓ of each in their own 'corner' of the pan, except the scallions.
  6. Pour sauce over these but not so much that the vegetables are swimming (about ½ the sauce). Bubble for 4-5 minutes, gently turn everything over and place scallions on top in a neat pile.
  7. Bubble 4-5 minutes more and it is ready to serve.
  8. Carefully place ¼ of the meat in each person's bowl. Then immerse the scallions in the pocket you have just created in the skillet.
  9. Serve the other ingredients and by the time you have served all, the onions/scallions should be wilted and cooked just right.
  10. Spoon a bit of sauce over all. Start the next batch of sukiyaki when the first half of the dish has been served.
  11. Serve over a bed of Shirataki Noodles
