Mirin and Soy Chicken

Experimenting with some different flavors on chicken for a future ramen cook.  2tbls mirin, 1bls dark soy, 2tsp of light soy, 2 minced garlic, 1 small mince shallot and some cayenne. Vac pac’d for an hr to marinate.   After they were mostly cooked I glazed with dark soy and light brown sugar.   Great taste.  Should be good in ramen.

    I like the color that a bit of dark soy adds to food. This looks delicious as always.

    You really can't go wrong with marinated & grilled chicken and rice.
    It's "Smokin Gal", not "Smoking Al".

    Looks great as usual, Matt. 
  • Looks fantastic. @CPARKTX  got me into “The Japanese Grill” book a few years ago and I love these flavors. 

    If you are looking to tweak a little more, Seems like a little ginger would fit nicely and I always add a touch of rice wine vinegar to my mirin/soy marinades. 

    A little sesame oil will add something as well. 

    And I find myself adding Sambal/Chile garlic Paste more often than not for a little kick. 

    Had ramen last night and now I want more.

    Thanks for the suggestion @Cen-Tex Smoker.  Do you have a Ramen p you could share?

    I do. Go to ramen shop and eat ramen :)

    never tried making it. That’s a whole other thing.

    Nice cook, Matt.

    I often tend to have a heavy hand with the dark soy, and need to learn to go easy with it. 

    And definitely looking forward to your ramen adventures :)

    Just don’t confuse it with light soy, because a heavy hand does a salt lick make. Boy was I thirsty after dinner that night.
