Sukiyaki-Influences of the West introduced a new dietary idea that the people gradually abandoned Buddhist regulations forbidding meat consumption. Chicken, pork and beef appeared on Japanese menu and one of their famous dishes is sukiyaki—(pronounced skee-yah-kee) means broiled on a blade of plow.  The word comes from the ancient farmers who hunted wild animals and cooked them in an open fire with whatever utensils were available, such as a plow blade.
