This video was produced as the first phase of the "Mitsukan Minna no Kitchen Project". The gorgeous voice actors, each voicing a family member, introduce the "NEO Shabu" recipe using Mitsukan's "Nabetsuyu (Hot pot broth)" that will make you want to shabu-shabu.
There are four different recipe videos.
In the "Easy Sesame Soy Milk Pork Shabu with Plentiful Green Peppers" video, Katou Emiri plays the wife and Eguchi Takuya plays the husband of a remote working couple. A family of four - Sugita Tomokazu (Dad), Kujira (Mom), Katou Emiri (Sister), and Eguchi Takuya (Brother) - bring their favorite ingredients to the table for a lively meal in "Melted Cheese and Green Peppers in Sesame Soy Milk Pork Shabu.

The web video "Shabu Shabu Theater" is now available on the official YouTube channel of Mitsukan and other sites.
This time, in "New Discovery! Pork Shabu with Avocado and Mini Tomatoes in Grilled Eel Soup" I played the role of the husband, and in "Kimchi Soup Pork Shabu with Asari's Umami!", I played the role of the second son. I played both roles with a lot of fun and playfulness, so please listen to them and try making the shabu-shabu you're interested in!
Nabeshabu (hotpot shabu) is a familiar dish that is eaten all year round, and it can take on many different colors depending on what you add to it. Nabe is a familiar dish that we eat all year round, so I was happy to be able to perform in this episode.
It was a very hungry recording. Needless to say, I went straight to the store to buy green peppers after the recording.
I had a lot of fun playing the roles of the various families around the hot pot! As I played them, I was curious to know what kind of hot pot there is. It was a delicious commercial!
I tried the avocado and tomato, and it was delicious! It was a strange encounter!
