We think our copycat Japanese white sauce (or "yum-yum" sauce) tastes just like the one you'll find at Benihana Restaurants™. (Go ahead, put it on everything.)

More About This Recipe

  • They call this white sauce “yum-yum sauce” for a reason! It’s a staple at Japanese steakhouse restaurants and some Mongolian BBQ joints, and it pairs well with just about any Asian or Asian-inspired cuisine. You can whisk all the ingredients together in just a few minutes, but the secret to this particular sauce is to let the flavors meld in the refrigerator overnight. One taste, and you’ll agree this yum-yum sauce lives up to its name. Can’t wait 8 hours? Try one of our 5-minute blender sauces instead.
