Yakiniku Sauce (Japanese BBQ Sauce) (v)

Sauce & Dressing, Vegetarian

Hello, guys! Long time no see.

I hope you all had a nice Easter holiday etc…

Thank you very much for visiting my FB account (@jhomerecipe) while I was quiet. Although there were some reasons I could not write articles,  I decided to start to update the articles as my badly infected finger was cured! (It was really bad, in fact.)

Anyway, I am really happy to come back and share my passion about food with you again!

Today, I will introduce you how to make nice Japanese BBQ sauce. We dip grilled beef, pork or vegetables in this sauce at BBQ. Of course you can use this sauce as you use western BBQ sauce. Although, what I want to stress about this sauce is that this sauce is really useful and goes well with almost any foods. So Japanese people use this sauce as seasoning for your daily cooking, like stir fried vegetables. My recommendation is to use this sauce for Katsu.

Last week, I used this sauce for Katsu don (rice bowl with kastu on top) and made my English husband really impressed. (I will write another blog about this!)


I remember that when I was a university student in Japan, my friend bought a bottle of Japanese BBQ sauce as a present for an exchange student from Taiwan who did not know what to make for dinner! I really thought that was a great idea!

Unfortunately, if you live out of Japan, it is difficult to get the bottle from the supermarket so easily. I have been missing this sauce and finally found the way to make!

Please try!



  • 2.5 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sake
  • 1 tablespoon of mirin
  • 1 tablespoon of miso
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of grated seame
  • 2pcs of grated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of grated ginger

and…(this is the key)

  • 1 tablespoon of apple/marmalade Jam

If you do not have any Jam, then you can use hunny, but apple Jam is the best.


Mix well, and cook in a small sauce pan unti the sauce start to boil.

I imagine it is difficult for you to guess how to use this sauce if you have never try some. I am thinking to introduce more recipes with this sauce so that you can not stop running to the supermarket to get all the ingredients for my sauce!xx
