Namikura Kyoto-Style Red Miso
Aged longer than white or yellow miso, red miso is stronger, saltier and more assertively flavored. This particularly interesting version has sweet flavors reminiscent of sherry and milk chocolate. We tend to pair it with meats or mushrooms in hearty dishes, like our pan-seared miso-marinated skirt steak or a mushroom sauce to match a porcini-crusted tenderloin. Try blending with white miso for a hearty take on miso soup or adding a spoonful to any beef-based soup or stew to boost the flavor.
