- 1⁄2 Cup sake
- 1⁄2 Cup mirin
- 1⁄2 Cup soy sauce (use GF soy sauce for gluten free)
- 1⁄4 Cup sugar
Gather all the ingredients. See Notes for half-portion ingredients and substitutions for sake and mirin.
In a saucepan, combine all the ingredients. Add the sake and mirin.
Add the soy sauce and sugar
Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and continuously stir the sauce until the sugar is dissolved. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium low. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
As you mix the sauce or tilt the saucepan, small bubbles will start to rise and appear on the surface. When this happens, the sauce is ready to use. Pour the sauce into a sterilized jar and leave uncovered to cool. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
