  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • Add the soy sauce, sake, mirin and honey into a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Bring it to a boil and continuously stir the mixture until the honey dissolves. Then reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for about 10 minutes, or until it's slightly thickened.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and use it immediately or store away. If you plan to store it away, make sure to let the sauce cool a little before refrigerating.



  • 1 serving is about 2 tablespoons and this recipe makes about 1/2 cup of sauce after it's reduced.
  • You can usually find sake and mirin in most big supermarkets, but if you have trouble finding them look for a local Asian supermarket.
