Ingredients: Concentrated All-Purpose Mentsuyu

  • 350 ml Mirin...A
  • 200 ml Soy Sauce...A
  • 100 ml Usukuchi soy sauce...A
  • 100 ml Sake...A
  • 100 grams Thickly sliced bonito flakes (you can used dried bonito flakes too, but they more or less lose their flavor)
  • 2 pieces about 8 cm Kombu for dashi stock

How to Make Concentrated All-Purpose Mentsuyu

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 21 steps you must follow to make Concentrated All-Purpose Mentsuyu in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Add the "A" ingredients and the kombu to a sauce pot and let sit for about half a day. *If you're in a hurry, cut notches into the kombu and let sit for 3 hours.
  • Step 2
  • Heat the mixture from Step 1 on medium heat. Before it begins to boil, remove the kombu from the pot. When it boils, add all of the bonito flakes and lower the heat to low.
  • Step 3
  • The listed amount of bonito flakes is not a mistake. This is how much you use. If you double the amount used for normal dashi stock, you should have enough.
  • Step 4
  • Boil the liquid from Step 2 about 10 minutes and turn off the heat. *If you let the soy sauce bubble and boil on high heat, it becomes bitter, so it's important to lower the heat to low and simmer.
  • Step 5
  • Allow to cool, line a strainer with a paper towel and strain. *As seen in the picture, if you use a strainer with small holes like a tea strainer, you don't need a paper towel.
  • Step 6
  • When it has cooled, pour into a glass storage jar that was sterilized in boiling water and it's done. Store in the refrigerator. *It's preservative-free, yet lasts for at least 3 months.
  • Step 7
  • For somen noodles, cold udon, or soba, use the ratio {Noodle Sauce: Water = 1:2.5~3}. If you substitute one part of the water for the water used when hydrating dried shiitake mushrooms, it's ok.
  • Step 8
  • For standard udon and soba noodle broth, use the following ratio {Noodle Sauce: Water = 1:7.5 ~ 9 + salt as needed}. *For one person, 2 pinches of salt in 400 ml of water is good.
  • Step 9
  • The {1:9} ratio of sauce in Step 8 should look like this color. *I sometimes use the Kansai-style light soy sauce to make the base.
  • Step 10
  • You can dilute it however you want and use it for various noodles...If you can remember your favorite dilution ratio, then you can have the flavor of your favorite restaurant's sauce anytime, right at home.
  • Step 11
  • If you find that the flavor of the sauce feels a bit on the weaker side after you've diluted it with water, this is probably due to the fact that the dashi wasn't made probably.
  • Step 12
  • Before adding the seasoning, please add [Bonito soup granules] and [flavor enhancing umami seasoning]. The flavor will taste very good.
  • Step 13
  • Not only can you use this sauce for udon or yakisoba, you can also use it for Japanese-style pasta etc. Use it as a replacement for noodle sauce in recipes. It definitely tastes better than the cheap sauces sold in the markets.
  • Step 14
  • I always make an extra amount to preserve. But in the case of an emergency, when I run out, I always buy the brand of sauce shown in the picture.
  • Step 15
  • If you add the water from the beginning while diluting it for somen or udon etc., it will only keep for about 3 days and it will change the flavor of the sauce a bit.
  • Step 16
  • For example, if you think "I'm only going to use it for today's somen". It's best to dilute the concentrated sauce with dashi broth.
  • Step 17
  • I also uploaded"Straight Noodle Sauce made from Soup Granules." It's easy and quick so I recommend it as well.
  • Step 18
  • I also uploaded a standard, salty-sweet dish that goes very well with cold Chinese noodles or somen "Maitake Mushrooms Boiled in Sugar Syrup".
  • Step 19
  • There's also a recipe that uses this sauce to make Curry Udon.
  • Step 20
  • I also used this sauce in another recipe for Sesame Seed Sauce and uploaded it.. I recommend it with spinach.
  • Step 21
  • I uploaded a recipe using this sauce for Seasoned and Mixed Rice.
