Here’s another new variety of the Soba line – yakitori chicken. Here’s a little something about yakitori from Wikipedia –
The preparation of Yakitori involves skewering the meat with kushi (串?), a type of skewer typically made of steel, bamboo, or similar materials. Afterwards, they are grill over a charcoal fire. During or after cooking, the meat is typically season with tare sauce or salt.
In order to facilitate even cooking, the meat is cut into small, roughly uniform shapes and then skewered with kushi; after which the yakitori are seasoned and cooked. Charcoal is the preferred method of cooking as it produces high heat and strong flames while giving off little to no water vapor. This allows for the ingredients to cook quickly while imparting a crunchy texture to the skin. While gas and electric heat sources can be used, they do not develop the same aromas or textures as charcoal-cooked yakitori.
Guess I’d better cook some chicken up! Let’s check out this new variety!
