 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 cup Low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Mirin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 cups water
  • a piece of 10 x 10 cm konbu (a kind of seaweed)
  • 1 cup(about 40g, dried) of katuo bushi (bonito flakes))
  • 1 tb Sake (rice wine)


This is a purely homemade udon broth recipe and quite authentic. I believe you can find the ingredients in most Asian Grocery Stores.

1) Boil 1/4 cup mirin and 1 cup of sugar over medium heat till sugar desolved. Add 2.5 cup soy sauce into the pot and bring to boil. Turn off heat. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover up and leave it in the refrigerator of 2 to 3 days
2) Boil 5 cups of water over medium heat, add a piece of 10 x 10 cm konbu and 1 cup of katuo bushi into the boiling water, then add the soy sauce mixture into the pot slowly, adjust the taste while you are adding the black sauce to the clear one.
3) When you find what you like, bring to boil, strain the broth and discard the konbu and katuo bushi, keep the soy sauce mixture back to refrigerator if there is any left over.
4) Add a tiny bit of Sake in your udon broth, it spice up the broth when you serve your udon with meat!
