Noodle Dipping Sauce
It's a quick way to make Japanese noodle dipping sauce. It can be served with various boiled and chilled noodles, such as somen and soba.


  • 2 cups kombu and katsuobushi dashi
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup mirin


Put mirin in a medium pan and bring to a boil. Add soy sauce and dashi soup stock in the pan and bring to a boil again. Stop the heat. Cool the sauce.

Authentic Soba Tsuyu, Member sirlsirl

I lived in Japan for years and frequented many soba restaurants. This recipe for the basic soba tsuyu is authentic. Variants use other fish flakes and flavorings, but this is the base and quite tasty. Make sure you use konbu in your dashi.
