Sake is a clear, dry alcoholic Japanese rice wine, also drunk as a beverage. Shaoxing wine is an amber-colored Chinese rice wine. Shaoxing is rich in both protein and flavor, and has a strong umami depth. Mirin is a sweet, clear Japanese rice wine. Michiu is the Chinese version of fermented rice wine, with a stronger taste than mirin.
Cooking wine is primarily used to reduce or remove greasiness from any heavy dishes like meat or fish. As the alcohol present in the cooking wine reaches a sufficient heat, it’ll begin to boil, and when the alcohol evaporates, it takes the unpleasant smells with it.
Cooking wine can also help to tenderize meat. The acids present in the rice wine penetrate the meat’s tissue and break a little of it down, which results in a tastier and more tender bite.
