Here's The Best Use For Japanese Barbecue Sauce
Yakiniku sauce, another name for Japanese barbecue sauce, is a deliciously rich condiment that is best used for glazing various types of meats.
The sauce's balanced flavors include an umami kick from soy sauce, aromatics from ginger and garlic, sweet notes from sugar or honey, tanginess from vinegar, and sesame oil.
The sauce's slightly thick consistency also helps it adhere to meat, ensuring every bite is coated. Lastly, it creates a beautiful, caramelized finish.
Cook your meat as normal and add the Japanese barbecue sauce at the end, once it's nearly cooked through. This allows the sauce to melt and brown.
