Notes

  • EquipmentStaub pot 18cm
  • Storage: It will last in the fridge for 4 days.
  • Substitute: If you can't find shio koji at a store, you can omit it and add 1 more tablespoon of soy sauce and mirin instead.
  • The skin has fibers and is hard to soak in flavor, so peel it (3-5mm). And don't throw away the skin; you can use it for stir-fry.
  • You can add other ingredients such as boiled eggs, root vegetables, and so on.
