  • I found this on a message board on the Cooking Light website, hope it helps!!

    "mirin = sweet rice wine = sweet sake Pronunciation: MEE-reen Notes: This is a very sweet Japanese rice wine that's used to flavor rice and sauces. It's not usually consumed as a beverage. Aji mirin is salted, so adjust the recipe accordingly. Substitutes: 1 tablespoon dry sherry + � teaspoon sugar OR sherry OR heat two parts sake and one part sugar OR white wine + sugar to taste OR white wine"

  • You might be able to find it in the asian section at your grocery store. I don't know about it being at Walmart, they don't carry a lot of specialty stuff, but maybe a different store, that's just groceries? I have a Price Chopper here that I can usually find that kind of stuff at. If not, at the bottom of that, it gvies you things you can do to substitue.

    1 tablespoon dry sherry + 1 teaspoon sugar

    heat two parts sake and one part sugar

    white wine + sugar to taste
