In the summer of 2016, a Japanese barbecue sauce company was awarded a patent for its “barbecue” sauce, but a lot of people in Japan were wondering how the sauce came to be.
It wasn’t until recently that the company was able to reveal the answer, as it has been dubbed “Japanese BBQ Sauce”.
The new name is a tribute to the Japanese barbecue style, which originated in the early 20th century and was later popularised by the American barbecue restaurants.
“We’re very excited about the new ‘Japanese BBQ’ sauce,” said Yosuke Takashima, chief executive officer of the company, the Kobe-based Kobe Barbecue Co. The company started producing its new sauce in 2014.
The Japanese BBQ sauce is made from two kinds of pork: the ground beef and the fat.
The pork is ground in a charcoal kiln before being wrapped in wax paper, which is then wrapped around a thick, tough, fibrous paste made of collagen, which allows it to be wrapped around the meat.
The process also removes any excess fat and helps the sauce to absorb heat.
The paste also helps to prevent any condensation forming.
“Our original BBQ sauce had a sweet and sour flavor, which we wanted to give back,” Takashama said.
“But it wasn’t the best sauce, so we changed the flavor of the sauce by adding a bit of caramel, pepper and spices.”
The new recipe uses more pork fat, which will help to reduce the fat content of the new sauce.
But the Japanese BBQ Sauce won’t just be a barbecue sauce for the Japanese.
It will also be sold in the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia, according to the company.
The “Japanese Barbecue” Sauce is currently available in the US for $5.99 per 750 ml bottle, and it will be available to buy in the UK, Australia and New Zealand from February, the company said.
However, Takashita said that the sauces in other countries will be limited to the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates.
In the meantime, the new Japanese BBQ product will be used in Kobe, Japan’s second-largest city, which has a population of almost 4 million.
“The new sauce is the best Japanese barbecue ever, but we are also preparing it for the American BBQ restaurants,” Takasumi said.
Japan’s barbecue style originated in New York and Los Angeles, which have a population greater than three million people.
“When I was younger, I was eating pork and beef all the time,” Takashi said.
The Korean barbecue style was popularised in the 1970s in Los Angeles and New York, according Tochigi University in Japan, and has spread to other parts of the world.
“Barbecue in Japan is like the modern American barbecue style.
The meat is chopped and grilled, and the sauce is a mixture of meat, onions, vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar.
The result is a rich sauce with a good texture,” said Yoshio Kimura, professor of culinary arts at Kashiwagi University in Osaka.
The popularity of Japanese barbecue has not only led to its name, but also to the popularity of other barbecue products from across the world, such as kimchi, ketchup, BBQ sauce, and ketchup-made barbecue sauce.
“Japanese barbecue has become a worldwide phenomenon.
Many American barbecue joints are now owned by Japan,” Kimura said.
But while the Japanese sauce will be a staple in Kobe for the foreseeable future, it may not last forever.
The new barbecue sauce is still in the development stage, and Takashimas new company, Kobe Bar BBQ Co., will have to find other uses for the sauce before it can go on sale.
“It will be interesting to see if the sauce will have a future in Japan,” Takasu said.
