This is a Japanese soup stock. This is one of the many ways to make Dashi soup. The mushrooms can be used for different recipes after used in this recipe. This soup stock is good for recipes like Nikujaga (Japanese meat and potatoes).
Perfect for Nikujaga! - 23 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is very flavorful from the shiitake. I will make nikujaga with it as well as a few other recipes. - 20 Jan 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
