I hope you enjoyed your ramen experience!!! Here are some tips for the next time you make this recipe:
- Top with sesame seeds
- Use another meat: try braising chicken in the same tare or add spicy chili oil for extra kick!
To make the tare:
1¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 ¼ cup mirin
½ cup sake
1½ cup water
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 ounces ginger, coarsely chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
3 scallions, trimmed and sliced into 2-inch pieces
In a medium pot over medium-low heat, bring all of the ingredients to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Simmer, stirring, until the sugar has melted. Strain over a large bowl to reserve the liquid. Store, covered in your refrigerator.
