When I cook Japanese dishes, I often use Soy Sauce, Sugar and Mirin for seasoning. And the ratio is same most of the times. When I use those three seasonings, I often add Ginger and Garlic. What if I have a bottle of all those ingredients already combined? And this is it!

This sauce is super versatile, and it can be used as a dipping sauce for ‘Shabu Shabu’ and ‘Yakiniku’ (Japanese BBQ) as well. By adding vinegar, citrus juice, oil, chilli or other ingredients, it can be used marinade, salad dressing, and etc.


Ingredients

1/2 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Mirin
1/4 cup Sugar
3 to 4 cloves Garlic *crushed
6 to 8 thin slices Ginger
1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar *optional

Method
  1. Combine all ingredients in a clean/sterilised bottle or container. Keep in the fridge for 1-2 days or until flavours develop.
  2. Remove Garlic and Ginger from the sauce if required.
