Niku Miso is grounded meat with miso flavor. This can be used as a sauce for pasta or rice, can be used as a dip or even as a spread. Probably my favorite way to eat this it to eat with steamed rice or wrapped with lettuce. This is tasty even in room temperature so I often pack it with rice as a lunchbox. I am sure you will come up with your own way to use it very easily
