We'd run out of mirin, but it was still delicious without that.

I did not enjoy this recipe. I followed it to the t but it was very salty. Do not recommend sadly.

I'm sorry to say that I was really disappointed with this recipe. It uses some ingredients that are fairly expensive in the supermarket (brown miso, soba noodles) and the result was really poor. It was lacking flavor and the noodles stuck together in a clump so wouldn't take the sauce - even though I rinsed them in cold water as instructed. Will not be making again.
