oh my gosh - great for meatballs (put some in your meat mixture) no more than a tablespoon per pound of beef/pork/veal.
also verrrry good with scrambled eggs- just a 1/2 teaspoon mixed in with the eggs as you scramble them.
good for soup also - great in a plain tomato soup- just a dab in your bowl, stir it in and smargk!
it adds a little dimension of flavor, you can't taste the component parts (mushrooms, vinegar, tomatoes, etc) when mixed in with your food - but you will notice that the flavors seem deeper when you use it.

My sister gave me a tube after hearing about it on a NYC radio show. She really didn't know what to do with it so she gave it to me. I use it to rub on steaks before grilling them and it gives them a certain magic taste that you just can't put
your finger on. The package has a website where you can go and see a video of different ideas about using the product. Recipes at: [...]
Be brave, try it you will like it. Just don't use it as ketchup.

By the way I went to the website and umami paste does not contain MSG as one
reviewer stated. That's a good thing.

Back again......Didn't realize it had an expiration date! I received my last three
tube shipment in January and I am on its last legs. I am still here and happily using it after the date. Do you think the ancient romans worried about e4xpiration
dates as all of the above ingredients occured in their cooking. I just ordered the far east
umami and can't wait to give it a trial run with all my stir fries etc. that do not
live up to my liking and I hope this will do the trick.

I had read an article in a food magazine about this product and the only place I could find it was on Amazon.com. I had to wait a while to get it, but I'm really happy I searched it out.
Its a very unique (in a good way) taste. A slight undertone of olives, kind of earthy, a bit salty, a subtle tomato-y taste...all wrapped into one.
At first, I was a little intimidated to put it into a dish, but I just started to experiment. I have added it to finished rice, stir fry, risotto, homemade soups and pasta sauces.
WHen you taste it directly from the tube, it has a distinctive taste, but when its added to a dish, you don't notice that exact taste. Instead, it seems to simply "enhance" the flavors that are already in your prepared dish.
Not sure if I'm explaining this very well, but it does add a subtle "brightness" to your dishes. I'm really happy with it and I look forward to finding new ways to utilize it.
A little really does go a long way, so don't let the price + shipping scare you off.

I can't remember where I first read about the Umami No 5 paste but when I did, the cook/foodie in me immediately wanted to try it. I first found it at a chef's store in L.A. but it wasn't reliably in stock - which is when I started turning to my friend Amazon. Anyone bringing the product home for the first time should start by giving it a taste on its own - it is surprisingly quite pleasant straight out of the tube. Then I recommend heading over the to product website for some suggestions on how to use it. I use mine mostly to make super easy tomato sauce: sauté a clove of minced garlic in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until it just starts to color, throw in a pinch of red pepper flakes and salt and and stir in 8 oz of crushed tomatoes and a squeeze of the umami paste. Simmer and salt to taste. You can mix in some dried herbs like oregano or whatever else you feel like. So easy! I tend to reach for the paste when cooking savory Mediterranean style meals that could use an extra something. It's also good mixed in ground meat patties. The paste makes for am inexpensive, fun & unique gift for any foodies in your life. I've given away several tubes at this point. I usually buy the pack of three, keep one for myself and give the other two away (don't give it to a vegetarian though unless they make an exception for fish).

For those of you worried about MSG in the paste - the ingredients are all pretty basic - parmesan, anchovies, olives, mushrooms... I am pretty sensitive to MSG (I first get really thirsty, then hot, then my mind starts racing and I can't sleep and finally I get a headache). I have never had any problems after using this. The product website says there is NO MSG in it in big letters and I am inclined to believe them since it doesn't bother me.

I am in love with this product. You could make your own at home by using some earthy mushroom soaking water, tomato paste, sun-dried tomato oil, anchovy paste, kalamata olives and Parmesan cheese but why bother? Just buy this! I use it in EVERYTHING. I use it in my sun-dried tomato tuna salad (OMG is it ever good), in tomato sauce, with sautes, cheese and salami, as a condiment on a burger (so good) anywhere a savory kick is called for.

You definitely have to like the strong flavors of the ingredients involved. This is not for someone who is fussy about mushrooms or olives or thinks they can taste anchovies (you can't, trust me, I don't like them and I cannot taste them in this except for a slight briny quality). This product is for someone who really enjoys zipping up the flavor of their food. I highly recommend it. I will always have it on hand in my kitchen.
