Anecdotes : Shabu-shabu is of Chinese origin, this is a recipe from Peking, the yang rou shuan, using thin slices of mutton.
In 1952, a restaurant in Osaka, the Suehiro, import this dish, and he adapted to Japanese tastes. The sheep is not common in Japan, so it was replaced by beef, popular with Japanese, in particular meat of Kobe. Three years later, a Tokyo restaurant, the Zakuro, began serving shabu-shabu. This dish quickly became popular throughout Japan.
