Soy sauce (also called soya sauce) is a salty, fermented sauce much used on fish and other dishes in the Orient, prepared from soybeans.

Recipes

  1. Shoyu Ramen

    After visiting New York City's top ramen spots (including Ippudo NY, Sapporo and Momofuku Noodle Bar), Grace Parisi created her dream ramen with a pork-and-chicken-based broth that gets extra depth of flavor from kombu (seaweed) and shoyu (Japanese soy sauce ).

  2. Stir-Fried Chicken with Wilted Spinach & Tamari Walnuts

    The joy of stir-frying is that an interesting dish like this cooks in mere minutes. The only trick is to have all the ingredients prepped and ready to add. Once you start stir-frying you can't afford to lose time mincing and measuring.

  3. Sesame Tamari Vinaigrette

    The roasted-nut and citrus flavors of this easy dressing go well with Asian-style salads or meals; try drizzling it on grilled shrimp or chicken breast, too.

  2. 10 Slow Cooker Clean out the Pantry Meals

    Wed, 30 Jul 2014

    Sometimes the very best meals are the ones thrown together at the very last minute. I love slow cooking because it allows me to play in the kitchen. I love opening the fridge and dumping last night's vegetables into the cooker with some spices and seasoning to make an entirely new dinner. Less is More. I encourage you to "cook for free" with what you've already got in your fridge, freezer, pantry, and spice cabinet. Hopefully these recipes will inspire you to use your slow cooker like an Easy Bake Oven for grownups --- cooking should be fun and easy, and there is truly no easier way to cook then to dump a bunch of stuff into a pot, press a button, and walk away. If you are looking for a new slow cooker, these are the ones that I personally use in my home kitchen and recommend. Italian Minestrone Soup This flavorful minestrone uses ground meat and stewed tomatoes as a base.  Apple Cheddar Turkey Meatballs You can make moist, delicious turkey meatballs in the slow cooker using just a bit of shredded cheddar cheese, green apples, and ground turkey. They also freeze well if you decide to make a whole bunch! Zesty Burger Soup The "zestiness" comes from Rotel, and it's a great soup to make on a chilly fall or winter day. Poor Man's Chili The base for this chili is jarred pasta sauce, and the listed spice combination would make a leather gardening glove taste good. Vegetarian Chili Shepherd's Pie If you've got a few cups of leftover mashed potatoes, you can't go wrong with Shepherd's Pie! Calico Bean Soup You can use all of the ends of the random bags of beans you have in your cupboard, or you can use a bag of 16-bean soup mix found in the grocery store. Peanut Butter Pork The sauce uses peanut butter, brown sugar, and soy sauce with a bit of white wine vinegar to make a beautiful sweet, salty, tangy sauce for any cut of meat you'd like to use. Leftovers for Breakfast The base is made with frozen hashbrown potatoes, and you can use any type of diced meat you'd like. Add a few eggs, some milk, and then slow cooker overnight to wake up to a delicious and nutritious hot breakfast! Fried Rice This is the clean-out-the fridge and pantry recipe that I use the most often, and it has gone viral on Pinterest (even with the lousy photo). It works, it's easy, and it's (most likely) FREE! Moroccan Lentil Soup This vegetarian soup uses a lot of ingredients, but if you have a pretty well stocked spice cabinet you probably own everything already. This is a great freezer soup, although you'll probably have to thin it a bit upon reheating. ENJOY!! steph . . . . Make sure to visit my store page for my books, recommended slow cookers, and other fun slow-cooking stuff. Thank you for your support! --steph
