This sesame-flavored beef dipping sauce is an imitation of a classic often served at Japanese restaurants and also at a popular chain of steakhouses in Alberta, Canada. Though it may seem odd at first, you too will soon fall in love with the mixture of flavors!

I am in LOVE with this sauce and frequent the restuarant that it is served at just for this sauce. Now I can finally make it at home! Upon first taste it tasted a little heavy on the ginger but letting it sit for about 20 minutes in the fridge made all the flavors meld. LOVE IT! Thanks so much my search is over. Try it you won't like steak without it after trying it! Read More

I am sorry but I just didn't care for this sauce as written. I found that for me it was very strongly tahini flavoured and a bit gritty in texture. But I kept adding quite a bit of mayonnaise about 1 tsp sesame oil more garlic and about 1 Tbsp very finely minced fresh ginger. So in the end I am afraid I completely changed the recipe but made it more appropriate for our tastes. I used it as a dip for toasted ravioli which is also on this site and it was a nice compliment. Thank you Laurieloo for posting this recipe. Read More

While this sauce is similar in consistency to what is served in the aforementioned restaurants it isn't accurate. There is no mayonnaise in the actual sauce but it is made in a similar way to mayo (ie it's an emulsion). Read More

I was disappointed. I lived ia alberta for 25 years and had fun trying to guess which restaurant this is from. My guess is "The Keg" but I have been gone for a long time so who knows there coukd be a whole new chain I don't know about!! As far as this recipe I didn't like it. I did add sugar and a little balsamic vinegar which helped. Te each their own taste I guess. Read More

Too salty as is. I'd cut the soy sauce by at least half. Read More

This was very yummy! I am often accused of liking "weird" stuff and this meets my standard very deliciously! Use a stick blender for super-fast mixing. Read More

This was pretty good but it received 3 stars from me due to the very strong ginger taste. Next time I'll try cutting the ginger quantity in half. Read More
