Build a Japanese Pantry with These Grocery Essentials
Use these ingredients to make dishes like katsudon, homemade sushi, and more.
There’s no doubt about it: Japanese food and ingredients are easy favorites when it comes to both eating out and cooking at home. Here’s an easy way to build a pantry that holds all your favorite Japanese essentials—use these ingredients to make dishes like poke bowls, homemade sushi, katsudon, and more:
Nori is the paper-thin, dark green seaweed often used for making sushi, for topping rice, or for plain snacking. Use nori to make homemade kani maki!
Mirin is a Japanese rice wine often used in whipping up sauces for either seasoning or as a condiment on the side. It's sweet and light and is the perfect addition to your simple stir-fries and marinades.
3 Tonkatsu sauce
Dip those strips of crunchy tonkatsu into tasty Bulldog tonkatsu sauce!
4 Sushi rice
Whether you're throwing together a D-I-Y poke bowl or giving homemade sushi a go, sushi rice is a must!
5 Soba noodles
There are so many things you can do with buckwheat noodles: stir-fries, salads, and soups!
