Japanese recipes often use sake for Japanese cooking, because it increases the flavor of food, removes the unpleasant smell of fish, and tenderizes meat.
Use it for cooking, but if you do, you have to use less salt, soy sauce, or miso to avoid making the food too salty.
Mirin and sake are used for different purposes and are not interchangeable. Mirin is used to give glossiness to food, but Cooking sake softens meat, brings out the depth of flavor of the ingredients and adds a pleasant fragrance to the dish.
We recommend you to try out recipes like – Sake Giardiniera, Soba Miso Tofu Soup, Kinoko Gohan, and many more with our Cooking Sake to explore the humongous Asian Cuisine Portfolio.
