Food Fare: Japanese RecipesTeriyaki Sauce

Bring Mirin to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for about ten minutes. Pour in soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and sugar. Season with garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and black pepper; simmer an additional five minutes. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.


Uses: Teriyaki Sauce is commonly used to marinate meats and seafood. It can also be used as dipping sauce for Tempura (deep-fried seafood or vegetables).


*Note: Mirin is an essential condiment used in Japanese cuisine, with a slightly sweet taste. It is a rice wine similar to sake, but with lower alcohol content. In the Kansai style of cooking, Mirin should be used after a quick boil to let alcohol evaporate while in Kanto style of cooking, Mirin should be used as-is. Boiled Mirin is called Nikiri Mirin, literally "boiled over Mirin." [Source: Wikia Lifestyle].
