Chashu

3/4 Cup Water

1 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Oil

1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar

1 Tablespoon Red Miso Paste

2 Tablespoons Reduced-Sodium Soy Sauce

1/4 Cup Mirin

1 Inch Fresh Ginger, Sliced

2 Cloves Garlic, Sliced

1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1 Tofurky Ham Roast

Just like the previous preparation, this procedure couldn't be simpler. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a medium-sized pan and bring to a vigorous boil. Turn off the heat, cover, and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate and let the roast marinate for at least 8 hours.

Slice thinly and add to your favorite bowl of ramen noodles to serve. The warmth of the soup should reheat the slices without any additional cooking necessary.

Makes 8 - 10 Servings
