How does Umeshu Spare Rib Stew taste?

The spare ribs are tender while remaining moderately chewy. The fatty meat will be melt-in-your-mouth.

The saltiness of the soy sauce is slightly subdued. The elegant taste is enhanced by the sweet and sour and refreshing flavor of the plum wine. Thanks to the overnight marinade, the flavor is soaked to the core, and the more you chew, the more deeply delicious it becomes.

The crunchy and refreshing texture of the white onion is also a good combination. They neutralize the fatty taste of the meat. Please enjoy it with plenty of toppings.

Umeshu (plum wine) stew has a fruity flavor that is a little different from the thick, sweet and spicy spare rib stew. Although it takes time to marinate and stew, the process itself is very simple. Try it when you have leftover plum wine!
