Japanese steakhouse ginger sauce for dipping meat, vegetables, or eating with fried rice. Tastes just like the ginger sauce you eat at Japanese restaurants. Just 5 ingredients and done in under 5 minutes!
This is a recipe for the ginger meat sauce served at Japanese steakhouses where they cook in front of you on a teppanyaki or hibachi grill. I’m sure you’ve been to a Shogun, Taki, Ohana, Benihana, or Japanese Village that serves a very similar dipping sauce.
Anyone else out there request to have extra ginger sauce at the Japanese restaurant and tell the chef they can skip giving you the seafood mustard sauce?
I know I’m not alone in this. My mother does it too and when others at the table hear us request this, they ask the same thing!
We dip everything into it – the shrimp, chicken, steak, vegetables, fried rice, you name it. It’s the best meat sauce and it would also make a great marinade.
Japanese steakhouses don’t always offer takeout so we were looking to make the sauce at home and we’ve tried many, many different versions. This is the closest we’ve come to what our local Japanese steakhouse’s serve.
