Premium Rice Vinegar from Marukan! #Giveaway

Cooking is a big deal in my home...if my husband has the opportunity, he is actually the one who does most of the cooking. He especially loves to experiment and try new things when cooking for the family. When I received a some Marukan Vinegar for review, he thought it was the perfect chance to play in the kitchen and create some yummy things for us!

Marukan Rice Vinegar is slowly and naturally brewed, using traditional methods developed by over three-centuries of experience by Japan's finest artisans. The delicate aroma, rich flavor and mild taste of Marukan are all the result of this brewing process. So take your taste buds on an adventure with a Japanese treat that brings out the flavor in your favorite foods such as dips, dressings, sauces, sushi, vegetables and any type of meat. 

One of our favorite ways to use the Marukan products was as a meat marinade. We LOVE to cook outside on the grill and a meat just seems to hold awesome flavor and tenderness when marinated.
