Setsuko sets the electric skillet at medium and puts in a dollop of vegetable oil. She doesn't measure anything.
Brown some of the beef first.
Put in some sake, some soy sauce and some sugar (or mirin). Taste as you go. The broth, too.

Crowd in the greens, mushrooms, sliced bamboo shoots, and green onions. Let each ingredient steep in its own neighborhood so people can fish out their favorites. Replace goodies as you go.
Taste broth and add sake, mirin, soy sauce as necessary. Drink any reserved sake!
