  1. Bring the soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, and ginger puree to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium low. For a marinade, remove from heat and allow to cool. For a thicker sauce, mix cornstarch and water to form a smooth paste and stir into the mixture; allow to simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes.

Seriously, this is the real deal. Just the way Mom used to make it when we lived in Japan. Don't try to substitute dried ginger because it just doesn't give you that bright hit of fresh ginger flavor. And when you do the cornstarch thickener, make sure your water is cold when you mix it in. Thanks for a good recipe, Bob!


The best sauce I've made so far and the whole family loved it. I like the boldness. The one thing I haven't yet conquered is getting it to be less salty. Adding more sweetness isn't the answer as it's then too sweet and too salty. I'd make this again.

I made this and used this as both a marinade for steak and dipping sauce (thickened as directed) and hubby loved it. Next time I would just thicken the whole batch and use some for dip and some for marinade. Thanks for a good recipe.
