Red Miso Marinade for Beef & Pork

Red Miso Marinade for Beef & Pork

Red miso tenderizes and flavors the beef or pork, and, when grilled, the charred notes are the finishing flourish. The meat may be marinated overnight in the fridge before grilling; we think it's even better that way.

6 tablespoons Horikawaya Nomura aka (red) miso
2 tablespoons mirin
2 teaspoons sake
1 tablespoon sugar
Black pepper, to taste

Whisk the miso, mirin, sake, sugar and a few grinds of black pepper together in a baking dish large enough to accommodate the meat (it does not need to fit in a single layer). Lay the pieces of meat in the dish and flip them a couple of times to coat generously with the marinade. Let sit at room temperature 1 hour, turning once. May also be covered and marinated overnight in the fridge.
