Braised Mushroom With Dashi

Braised Mushroom with Dashi. Mushrooms cooked in dashi and mirin, Japanese style. The end product is an easy side dish that is bursting with umami flavor.

Since I was young, I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for mushrooms.

It doesn’t matter if they’re canned or fresh; I’m a mushroom fanatic.

Fresh mushrooms are one of the best things about living in the United States. They’re easy to come by in the marketplace…

I always cook these Japanese-style braised mushrooms with dashi and mirin whenever I find fresh shiitake mushrooms at the market.

As a consequence, you’ll have a simple side dish that’s loaded with umami flavor. This braised mushroom recipe will demonstrate what I mean.

Each serving of this recipe has only 46 calories.


  • 226 g of fresh shiitake mushrooms with stems trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons of mirin
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of dashi
  • 1 tablespoon of mirin
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar


  1. Cook all the ingredients except the mushroom over low to medium heat.
  2. Add the mushrooms to the saucepan as soon as it reaches a boil.
  3. Stirring occasionally, cook the dashi until it has reduced to about half of its original volume. The mushrooms will make it slightly sticky. Turn the heat off.
  4.  Let the mushroom cool. Thinly slice the mushrooms. The best way to eat this meal is to serve it at room temperature or chilled.
