If you’re like me, you have to order a serving of rice with sesame steak sauce every time you visit your local Japanese restaurant – there is something highly addictive about it. A friend of mine passed along this recipe, which I think tastes pretty close to the real thing.
1/3 cup raw sesame seeds
1 tsp dijon mustard mixed with 1 tsp dry mustard; mix with a little water to make a paste
2/3 cup light soy sauce
2/3 cup light oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1. Toast raw sesame seeds in a dry heavy saucepan on medium heat. Raise the saucepan in quick intervals off and on the heat, shifting and moving the seeds until they are a uniform light brown. Stay vigilant with this…the seeds can burn easily if left in one position too long.
2. Put seeds and remaining ingredients – except mayonnaise – in blender and blend until smooth, about three minutes.
3. Add mayonnaise and blend additional minute
