This is Hiro's version of the Japanese mother sauce. A variation of it is used in almost every Japanese marinade and soup base, and you can use it to marinate almost anything. Once you start using it, it will become a staple in your kitchen, as it is in ours. Increase the recipe if you need more.

Yield: about 3/4 cup

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons mirin
  • 2 Tablespoons sake
  • ¼ teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon grated garlic

In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients.
