Every once in a while I try to focus on the "Sauce and Salsas" section of The Book for a few weeks. This glaze was good. I broiled some tofu, brushing this glaze on every couple minutes. It made for a very, very simple dish that was quick and tasty! Because this glaze is made from ingredients that you can easily store in your pantry or fridge indefinitely, this is a nice recipe to keep on hand. It would also go well with beef or chicken, but there is almost always some tofu hanging around in my refrigerator, so I was anxious to see how this glaze would work on it. One critique of this recipe is that it was a bit heavy on the soy. The soy sauce flavor drowned out the sweetness of the sauce, and the flavors of the mirin and sherry. If you try this recipe I would suggest cutting back on the soy sauce a bit. Also, the glaze had to simmer longer than indicated in order to reduce to the proper consistency, so give yourself a little extra time.
This recipe isn't online.
