Like anything homemade, its FAR better than the processed plastic dross you buy in the supermarkets…Use this with barbecue’s for basting/flavouring your meat. You can also use it when grilling chicken, steak, salmon, veggies or when adding it to a Chinese dish.

Mirin (味醂 or みりん) is an essential condiment used in Japanese cuisine. It is a type of rice wine similar to sake, but with a lower alcohol content and higher sugar content. You can substitute it with 1/2 Sake to Water


  • 4 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 4 tbsp Mirin or 2 tbsp Sake & 2 tbsp Water
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Minced Fresh Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Crushed Fresh Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tsp Corn Flour Mixed with 2 tbsp Water
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds


Step 1

Add all of the ingredients (except the cornflour & water mixture) to a small pan and gently bring to the boil

Step 2

Simmer for 5 minutes then strain the mixture off through a sieve to remove the ginger & garlic. (Use the back of a spoon to press the juices through the sieve).

Step 3

Return the sauce to the pan with the sesame seeds and gently bring to boil & then slowly add the cornflour mixture to thicken until desired consistency is achieved.

I just like cooking great food..
