Simply put, this mysteriously named dish is a popular style of nabemono, or Japanese hot pot, which includes thin slices such as tender meat paper and fresh vegetables cooked together in a large, open pot. Unlike other types of hot pots, where ingredients are cooked together before serving, shabu-shabu ingredients are served raw and cooked next to the table during the meal, similar to fondue. Shabu shabu is a popular hot dish from Japan that consists of thinly sliced meat and bite-sized vegetables cooked in hot, steaming broth.
Eating in hot pots has been popular in Japan for thousands of years, ever since the first use of clay pottery, but shabu shabu itself first originated in the mid-20th century. The main difference between shabu shabu and other types of Japanese hot pots is that, instead of simmering all ingredients before serving, shabu shabu is cooked bite by bite throughout the meal, similar to fondue. Shabu is another stimulant name for methamphetamine hydrochloride, also known as crystalline methamphetamine. The use of shabu continues to increase and methamphetamine addiction remains the most important drug problem in the Philippines.
Medications are usually used to create a sense of delight, increase wakefulness and physical activity.
