This recipe for Simmered Shiitake is simple enough that anyone can make it without trouble. I tried 10 different kinds of Japanese noodle soup base and picked out the one that anyone can make taste great.
Below is the noodle soup base that will ensure that you get great flavor when making this recipe.
・Kikkoman Concentrated Hon Tsuyu Soup Base
・For 4x concentrated: use 2-1/2 tbsps
・For 3x concentrated: use 3 tbsps
You might also consider making double the amount because it also works well as a soup base for making delicious simmered fish.
While you can certainly make a great-tasting simmered with a Dashi stock made from natural ingredients – Kombu, Katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes), and Iriko (dried sardines), together with a nice soy sauce and mirin – which makes for a more delicious simmered dish, the flavor will be different every time.
This recipe is the result of a quest to find a sure-fire way to make great-tasting simmered dishes every time.
