The term of ‘Yakiniku’ commonly refers to the Japanese style BBQ that is often enjoyed at dinner table. The main ingredient is meat. How can it be Vegan? Well, the Yakiniku Sauce is animal-product-free and it is so versatile. It’s a great sauce for the stir-fry. Today I used fillet type Dry Soy Meat, which is available from most Asian grocery stores. It is a good meat alternative.
