Here’s what they had to say ‘”Stamina sauce” is a yakiniku sauce that is loved by the people of Aomori prefecture and is sold not only in Aomori prefecture (青森) but all over the country. It is used in various dishes as a versatile seasoning, and it goes well with instant noodles. “Myojo Charmera Aomori Stamina Sauce Garlic Soy Sauce Mazesoba” is a spicy sauce mixed soba (まぜそば) with a sweet sauce and spicy oil. The sweetness has been strengthened to bring it closer to the flavor of the stamina source. This is a super long-selling product that has been on sale for over since
June 1951. The cup is made using carefully selected raw vegetables such as apples and garlic from Aomori prefecture, domestic onions, ginger and soy sauce made from 100% soybeans and wheat from Aomori prefecture.’
Sounds interesting – maybe I need to get some of this sauce. Let’s give this one a try.
