Yakiniku Sauce Recipes

These are the Yakiniku sauce recipes I used for Chris and Hiroko’s Yakiniku extravaganza. The apple miso sauce is not at all a trad Yakiniku sauce but we used it on chicken and as a dipping sauce. It was very good. You really want to vary the ingredients to taste so use these just as a guide.

Soy sauce based Yakiniku Marinade/Sauce:

Ingredients:
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1 large asian pear peeled and cored
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup mirin
400ml soy sauce
4 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup maple syrop
juice of 2 lemons
3 tbsp yuzu crush
2 tbsp roast sesame seed lightly ground
1 tbsp sesame oil

Directions:
1. Grate with a fine grater or pulverize in food processor: onion, garlic and pear.
2. In a pan, put wine and heat to boil. Add soy sauce, sugar, maple and the mixture from step 1. Simmer for 20 minutes with low heat stirring occasionally.
3. Add lemon juice, sesame oil and sesame seed then cool down.
(You can store this sauce 3 weeks in a fridge.)


Salt based Yakiniku marinade/sauce

Ingredients:

1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup white wine
1 1/2 tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup mirin
2 tbsp sesame oil
juice of 2 lemons
2 tbsp roast sesame seed (lightly ground)
5 spring onions very finely chopped

Directions:
1. Grate with a fine grater or pulverize in food processor: onion, garlic.
2. In a pan, put wine and the mixture from step 1. Cook for about 3 minutes. Add sea salt, sugar, mirin, sesame oil and lemon juice. Cook for another minute or so.
3. Cool down and add sesame seed, sesame oil and finely chopped spring onion.

Apple Miso Sauce/Marinade

Ingredients:

1 cup good quality miso paste (I used a red miso)
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup mirin
1/4 cup sugar
1 onion (grated)
1 apple (grated)
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp grated garlic
1 tbsp ground sesame

Combine ingredients and adjust applejuice/mirin to taste.

    Could you please adv what is yuzu crush and where can we find this material. Thanks.

  • Mr. Stephenson

    Yuzu Crush is concentrated yuzu juice. Yuzu is a fruit that has a very powerful citrus flavour. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuzu
    You can find this in Japanese and Asian grocery stores. You can substitute lemon but it is not quite the same.

    IMHO yuzu is an acquired taste. Use it sparingly the first few times. Grapefruit might be a suitable substitute as well.
