Nif's Copycat Japanese Village Sesame Steak Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is a really close copy of an amazing Japanese sauce that I just love!!! The servings estimate was hard to guess. It depends on how much you like. I tried and tried to find a good recipe online and ended up playing with a couple of them to come up with this. I would try this over almost anything or as a dip for any meat, fondue, Shabu Shabu, etc. It is intended to dip grilled steak into. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup white sesame seeds, toasted until just golden brown
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 23 cup soya sauce
  • 23 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 12 cup white onion, finely chopped


  1. In a medium bowl, stir water into dry mustard until smooth.
  2. Add the soya sauce and vegetable oil to mustard. Stir and then pour into blender.
  3. Add sesame seeds, garlic and onion to blender and blend for 2 minutes on low and then 2 minutes on high. It should be quite smooth when finished.
  4. This would typically be served cold or at room temperature.

This is good, but not Japanese Village good - it was my favourite restaurant in Calgary and since I moved away, the steak sauce is what I dream about! I shall continue my search... Thanks! Made for PAC Fall 2012

This is a nice sauce for dipping! I used it on my steak and we really liked it! I used low sodium soy sauce and it worked well! I think this would go great with steamed shrimp, or even over Japanese noodles, seafood, and veggies. I will be experimenting with this and trying it on sushi as well!
