    Bachan's Japanese BBQ Sauce -- Amazing!

    Wow. I have no idea what took me so long to try this, especially as I really enjoy Asian food. This stuff is legitimately amazing! I have not been this wow'ed by a sauce since I tried Black Swan's Beso del Fuego.

    Bachan's has been describes as a teriyaki-leaning BBQ-esque sauce, which is fairly close. The "pepperishness" of an American BBQ sauce is replaced by the onion and especially the ginger notes. But what really strikes me is that it is the perfect combination of soy and mirin flavors. Absolutely perfect. (For those who have never used mirin, it is a Japanese cooking wine that is an umani sweet syrup.) It's also relatively thin....not so much as Texas-style BBQ sauce, but no where near as thick as a Kansas City-style sauce.

    It is so good....I drizzled it over my Korean-style eggs and rice this morning. Took that stuff to the next level.

    Definitely want to explore using this in some dishes! I can see this working excellently as a dipping sauce or a glaze. It is a bit pricey, though. At my local HEB a 17 oz bottle runs $8, but certainly worth it.

      I did not realize they made that....that is definitely on my to-try list!

    I love teriyaki, been wanting to try this but never think of it. Walmart online has it for that same price, but I don't want to pay shipping so I'm going to wait until I buy more (free shipping $35+) or wait until I need to go there. Thanks for the reminder.

      This is on my Instart Favorite list, but I need to pare down my pantry's unopened bottles of other sauces. :0

      Order it for store pick up and you won't have to pay shipping.

      Bkhuna Yep, that's what I mean saying when I need to go there, my closest one is roughly 40 mins away. I will be trying to remember to get I next time I go there.

      We added this version to our next Walmart order. It is supposed to have a citrus kick.

        It has a hint of Yuzu Kosho, a citrus\fermented chili pepper paste from the south of Japan. It's great on it's own as a condiment for grilled chicken and pork. The Banchan Yuzu doesn't really have much of a chili or citrus kick.

      Love this stuff, I use it all the time. Great on pork chops. Or even better…..spread it on pork belly towards the end of smoking it.

        Will have to try it on pork chops. Sliced pork tenderloin I bet would be great as well.

      Love it on boneless skin on chicken thighs. Marinated then as a glaze and a finishing sauce. So good over steamed rice.

        My local Costco sells Bachan's in a fairly large container here in Nor Cal. Prices at the supermarkets are all over the place.

          My Costco has it in Tampa, also. It's two 17oz bottles for about ten bucks, so you need to buy more but the price is better. Not a problem having plenty in this house.

          This stuff gets rave reviews here. I have only had a sample at Costco. I didn’t buy. It seemed salty to me. Does anybody else detect a bit to much salt or should I just buy it and experiment?

            It's salty in the same sense that soy sauce is salty, but the mirin flavors balance it out.

          I bought the three pack from Amazon earlier this year. It’s $26.70 right now for subscribe and save.

          Bachan's - Three Pack Sauce Bundle, (1) Original Japanese Barbecue Sauce, (1) Hot and Spicy Japanese Barbecue Sauce, (1) Yuzu Japanese Barbecue Sauce, Small Batch, Non GMO, No Preservatives, Vegan and BPA free… https://a.co/d/hRC1fuK

          It is a bit salty but still delicious. I do find it a bit thin. I’ll reduce it down before I use it most times. As stated before it’s great on grilled pork chops or chicken and I’ve used the Yuzu for a quick beef hibachi sauce before.

          My favorite application is to reduced it down and toss air fryer chicken wings in it. So good. Served with a salad with yum yum sauce as a dressing, one of my favorite weeknight quick meals.

            I love it too. I bought a bottle at Costco for the same price at Mariano’s (Kroger).

              Love this amazing flavor to the moon and back! Works great to add depth to a simple plate of beans. Excellent stuff! Pretty sure I got it at Krogers. $8-$9 range.

                  I bought some of this but have yet to use it! This week I’m putting it to the test!
