Miso Butter Corn is a recipe that proves easy could be wonderful! The magic of a dab of miso. 🙂 This sautéed corn is a aspect dish that goes with the whole lot, from rooster rissoles to gyoza. Or make a meal out of it with a fried egg, avocado and tortillas for stuffing.
Miso butter corn
The world has David Chang to thank for the miracle that’s sautéed corn with miso and butter. He wasn’t the primary to make it however he was definitely the one who made it well-known! Actually, it was so wildly widespread at his New York restaurant that he took it off the menu as a result of he grew to become generally known as the corn restaurant that occurred to serve noodles!
Miso, in case you might be new to it, is a soy bean paste that’s most likely finest generally known as the bottom for miso soup (right here’s my mum’s recipe). A ton of savoury flavour packed into one harmless wanting tub (jar/packet). Nevertheless, as a result of it’s such a robust ingredient, it’s used for thus many different dishes, for each Japanese and Western dishes.
Immediately’s miso corn is a superb instance. A fusion Asian dish starring miso – err, sure, and corn!
Components in Miso Butter Sautéed Corn
Right here’s what you want to make this. Not many substances!
Miso butter and different substances
Miso – There are all kinds of miso varieties, discover one labelled “white miso” or “shiro miso” (“shiro” means “white” in Japanese). Crimson miso can be effective however use rather less – about 1 heaped tablespoon (miso flavour is a bit more intense). (PS My mum has a fantastic little abstract on several types of miso in her Miso Soup recipe).
Bacon – Streaky is the most effective as a result of we use the bacon fats to prepare dinner the corn. It’s what makes this dish so good!
Butter – Unsalted, this dish has sufficient salt from the bacon and miso. Should you solely have salted, dial again the miso barely.
Garlic – As a result of I don’t prepare dinner corn with out it if butter can be current.
Cooking sake – One of many 3 important sauces in Japanese cooking, it’s a rice wine made for cooking that you could find within the Asian part of grocery shops lately. It’s used to deglaze the pan after cooking the corn (a cooking time period which implies to make use of a liquid to dissolve golden bits caught on the bottom of the pan to combine into the sauce) and it provides a contact of additional savouriness into this dish. The alcohol cooks out as a result of it evaporates.
Substitute with mirin or Chinese language cooking wine, or water (we simply need some liquid to deglaze the pan).
Inexperienced onion – For freshness. Reduce it a bit of chunkier than the standard “finely sliced” that’s usually known as for in recipes. We would like an honest hit as a result of it’s the freshness right here.
White pepper – I take advantage of white as a result of it’s behavior in Japanese recipes. (Simply because this recipe has a contact of miso in it, my mind thinks I’m within the Japanese meals cooking sphere). However black pepper is ok too.
Additionally – Corn!
Sure, we want corn! 😂 Utilizing corn recent minimize off the cob is finest as a result of it’s dry so it sautés higher for pretty golden spots. Additionally, flavour (sweeter, higher) and texture (firmer, not soggy).
Frozen corn is the following finest various – use it from frozen however count on to prepare dinner longer (thaw>dry>prepare dinner) with canned citing the rear (it’s the wettest so it doesn’t sauté as effectively).
Right here’s how I minimize the corn off the cob with out the kernels flying all around the kitchen – giant bowl, prop the corn up on a bit of dish, small knife.
Methods to prepare dinner Miso Butter Corn
This recipe begins by sautéing bacon so the corn could be cooked within the bacon fats for additional tastiness! Then the miso butter is simply stirred by on the finish till it melts by.
Reduce corn off the cob – As talked about above, prop the corn up on a small ramekin or related inside a big bowl. Stand upright and minimize the kernels off utilizing a small knife. The bowl will catch the kernels in order that they don’t fly throughout your kitchen! A bundt pan additionally works.
Miso butter – Combine the miso and softened butter till mixed.
Prepare dinner bacon in its personal fats till golden. The fats within the bacon will soften because the pan heats up, so begin with a chilly pan. No additional oil wanted – so long as you utilize streaky bacon!
Bacon fats – Take away the bacon utilizing a slotted spoon so you retain as a lot bacon fats within the pan as doable. Then add the corn.
Prepare dinner the corn for 4 to five minutes till there’s gentle golden spots, and the corn is nice and cooked by. (Contemporary corn is firmer than frozen and canned corn). To do that, simply stir each minute relatively than stirring continuously. This provides the corn an opportunity to get the golden spots.
Add garlic in direction of the top of the cooking time, else it’s going to burn!
Deglaze – Add the cooking sake and stir till it evaporates. We solely use 2 tablespoons so it’s going to evaporate shortly, about 15 seconds or so. The aim of this step (known as deglazing) is to dissolve the golden bits on the bottom of the pan left from sautéing the corn into the combination. These golden bits are known as fond and it’s free flavour!
Miso butter – Flip off the range then stir to soften the miso butter by the corn. We don’t need to sizzle the butter as a result of the miso caramelises fairly simply. We would like shiny silk buttery sauce by our corn!
Toss the bacon and inexperienced onion in, then serve!
Issues of serving
I really like how versatile this dish is.
It’s a corn aspect dish filled with a lot flavour that you’ll fortunately eat it by the spoonful. Who cares what the primary dish is, simply gimme all of the Miso Butter Corn!
As talked about earlier, regardless of the miso in it, this doesn’t style Japanese or Asian. It’s universally tasty and the flavour profile is such that I wouldn’t hesitate to serve it alongside a pile of Crispy Herb Roasted Rooster with gravy or a Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Mustard Sauce. However then, it’s simply at dwelling with Asian mains like Chinese language Char Sui BBQ Pork, an enormous plate of gyoza or Grilled Marinated Thai Rooster (Gai Yang).
However my favorite is to show it right into a meal by including a fried egg, burst roast cherry tomatoes (10 minutes within the oven), avocado and tortillas for scooping/stuffing.
Breakfast, dinner, lunch, any day of the week.
However don’t fear about how I eat it. Inform me the way you’d serve this and what you’d serve it with! – Nagi x

Miso butter – Combine butter and miso collectively in a small bowl till mixed.
Golden bacon – Put bacon in an unheated giant non stick pan, no oil. Flip the range onto medium excessive warmth – because it heats up, the fats will begin to soften so the bacon cooks in its personal fats. Prepare dinner for 3 to 4 minutes till golden, then use a slotted spoon to switch onto a paper towel lined plate. Reserve bacon fats within the pan.
Prepare dinner corn – High up with butter if you happen to don’t have 1 tbsp fats left in pan. Nonetheless on medium excessive, add corn, then stir solely each minute or so (this lets it get some good golden spots), for about 5 minutes till corn is simply cooked and is nice.

Serve as a aspect dish. In a corn taco with a fried egg and avocado (OMG SO GOOD).
2. Corn – Contemporary minimize is finest as a result of it’s dry so sautés higher. Frozen thawed works too, count on to prepare dinner a bit of longer (wants time to thaw/dry/prepare dinner). Canned corn does work however as a result of it’s so moist, it simply doesn’t get little golden patches as effectively.

4. Recipe credit score – Tailored from David Chang’s well-known Roasted Summer time Corn with Miso Butter. I discovered his recipe a bit of salty so I decreased the miso and skipped the rooster inventory.
5. Leftovers will hold for 3 to 4 days. It would freeze okay too!
