Teriyaki Sauce with Mirin


  • Author: Mollie Allen
  • Yield: 46 Servings 1x

Description

Mirin is what gives this traditional teriyaki sauce its authentic flavor. Using just a handful of pantry staples—and mirin as your secret ingredient—you can whip this sauce up in no time! This recipe yields enough teriyaki sauce for 4 to 6 servings.


Ingredients

Scale

To Thicken

  • 2 tablespoons of Kuzu
  • ¼ cup water

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in a medium sized bowl, except for the kuzu and ¼ cup of water for thickening. Transfer to a medium saucepan and set over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a small bowl, combine kuzu and ¼ cup water for thickening and whisk together until the kuzu is dissolved.
  3. Add the kuzu mixture to the saucepan.
  4. Maintain medium heat, stirring occasionally until sauce reaches its desired thickness. If your sauce has become too thick, you may add more water.
  5. Once sauce has been sufficiently heated through and has reached its desired thickness, it’s ready to be poured over rice, vegetables, meat or tofu!
  6. You can easily prepare this sauce ahead of time by combining all of the ingredients and refrigerating, leaving out the kuzu thickening mixture until you are ready to cook.

Miso Butter

Description

Enjoy this tasty twist to a buttery spread made with our Miso Master Organic Mellow White, Sweet White or Traditional Red Miso. Our Miso Master Organic Sweet White and Mellow White Miso are lower in sodium and lighter in flavor and works great for Miso Butter on whole grain toast. Our longer aged Traditional Red Miso would be tasty for a Miso Butter flavoring tofu salad or thinned for a sauce.
