Cooking Wine/Mirin (미린)

Mirin is a common condiment in Japan made from rice. It's called sweet rice wine because it contains 40-50% sugar. It also contains about 14% of alcohol.

There are three kinds of mirin and they differ mainly in alcohol content. This one is called honmirin, the one with the highest alcohol content. It is generally used to enhance the flavor of meat during marinade. If you like teriyaki sauce, it's practically 1/4 part mirin.

If you cook meat often, you should have this product in your pantry.

COST: P180 (500ml)
