I made some udon the other day and tried to make the broth with the konbu kelp but it just tasted like very lightly flavored water. I even put bonito flakes in it. How do I make it taste like the restaurants?

Dashi:
4x6 inch piece of kombu
4 cups water
1/2 cup bonito flakes

Wipe kombu with wet towel/paper towel to remove any grit (but leave white powder, that's the good stuff.)

Soak kombu in water overnight at room temp

Discard kombu, bring water to boil

Remove from heat, add bonito flakes, wait until they sink to the bottom 15-20 min

Strain

Just add a Knorr Chicken Stock Pot. It's so easy and tasty!

MSG or you use Ajinomoto bonito powder or a liquid based stock. the amount of money you spent on getting kombu and Bonito flake you could of gotten a bottle of this stuff and it lasts a year.

You can make a lot more stock than that if you buy a reasonable amount of bonito flakes and kombu though.

>>7135052
1 konbu(glutamate) = 1 umami
1 bonito flakes(inosinate) = 1 umami
1 konbu(glutamate) + 1 bonito flakes(inosinate) = 7 umami

Japanese food is so bland.

also most places unless they are high end or upper middle end use soup stock bases like that. Even the most shitty Kombu is 2.99 and the bottom barrel cat treat Bonito is 2.49. that bottle isn't more than 5.99 on sale.

this too. Most north americans have issues tasting Dashi stock. So most of the time like 9/10 they use shit with MSG or go a little overboard with ingredients that add more flavor.

So did you ever come back, OP?

I did about 10 minutes ago. I think the problem was I only let the kelp sit for 20 minutes before boiling rather than overnight.

Glad to help them, I was worried I typed the recipe up for nothing.

Funny how that also triggered all the usual shit advice, even though no one responded at all until it was almost dead before that.

You can speed up the soak time with warmer water if you have to, but 20 minutes is always going to taste like lightly flavored water. And best results really are from the long slow soak.
