Not a Secret Anymore...japanese Steakhouse White Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Yankees0814

I have searched for this recipe for a very long time. It IS the sauce you get at places like Mon cafe and Jimmy's Hibachi!! The ingredients surprised me but it is very easy and the key is to let the sauce refrigerate overnight or at least make it early in the morning to have with dinner. My husband and I use it to dip everything from crackers, chicken nuggets or even on rice like they serve it in the restaurants. The recipe is easily doubled or (the way I make it) tripled!! ENJOY!!!

To Snoelle - Use Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise which is available in all supermarkets in the Asian aisle. Or any Asian grocery store. Hellman's is not the mayo of choice for Japanese. Also mix sake with the water. This will give it the flavor you are missing. The ratio is up to your personal taste. If you don't have sake, use a little bit of brandy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a fork or a whisk, blend all ingredients together thoroughly until well mixed and the sauce is smooth. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend. Bring to room temperature before serving.
  2. The sauce will NOT taste right if you don't let it sit overnight. And please don't try to substitute ketchup for the tomato paste! The water is needed to bring this to the right consistency.
