Yakitori sauce

This sauce is wonderful. I now always have a bottle of home made yakitori sauce in my fridge to add it whenever it’s needed.

I will write a “Lazy Yakitori” recipe that use it. 😉

It is extremely easy to do but takes a little bit of time.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of mirin
  • 1/2 cup of sake
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar *
  • 2 green onions (only the green part)

* Concerning the sugar, I like this sauce on the sweet side, but obviously adjust it to your taste. 😉


  1. Put all the ingredients in a pot and bring it to a boil on high heat.
  2. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat until having a gentle simmer.
  3. Let it simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes or until it reduce by half.
  4. When it is reduced enough remove from heat, remove the green onions and let it cool down.

I generally pour it in an empty soy sauce bottle when it’s cool.

Enjoy! 😉
