  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup sake

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 For the Glaze, mix all ingredients in small saucepan. Bring to boil on medium heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until glaze is reduced to about 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
