My host-mother in Japan introduced me to this sweet sauce flavored with miso and mirin. Miso sauce can stay in the fridge for a pretty long time, so you can make a lot of it at once. Grilled tofu, fried eggplant, or pan-seared fish complement it well.

This would be a great stir fry sauce for pork and veggies! I had to add a little bit more water so it wasn't terribly thick and I also added a bit of dashinomoto for a flavor boost. Read More

Made it but it too salty so made some modification. Added 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 extra tablespoons of mirins to balance out the saltiness in the miso. Beside that sauce is very good. Read More
