Homemade Yum Yum Sauce
January 31, 2012 Main Dishes
I have been searching for this recipe for awhile now and I finally have it! Thanks to the wonderful power of google! I never would have figured out how to put these ingredients into the flavor combo like this on my own. Every time we go to our favorite restaurant I take notes on how they fry up the rice, meat, veggies, etc. They keep the pan HOT, use only soy sauce to season, and cook everything quickly to sear the outside and keep the inside tender. Got it. But they don’t divulge the ingredients for the Yum Yum sauce which really makes the meal.

  1. Oh yummmm! Would you share how you make the chicken and rice, too? I’d heart you forever. ;)

  2. Ooooh yum! That sauce looks so good!

  3. thank you thank you! This is my family’s favorite part of the meal :-)

  4. You’ve solved the mystery! My husband and I love the Yum Yum sauce at the local hibachi restaurant and I’ve been meaning to try to recreate it at home. Thanks for this – he’ll be thrilled!

  5. Great, thanks for sharing, I could put this in a cup and drink it! Gonna pin it

  6. I was just telling my husband the other day that I wondered how they made this! Thanks for the recipe!

  7. YUM! This might become a requirement for all meals {minus breakfast of course…maybe}. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. Thanks for posting this! I found it on Pintrest. I lightened it up by using fat free mayo and smart balance butter spread. This makes it only 2 Weight Watchers points!

  9. Actually, many times it’s something a lot more simple –> Mayo + Srirachi Sauce. :)

  10. Oh, I’ll have to try this and hope its the same as the one I love. I find most have their own variations. I love the mayo sauce though!

  11. You could probably use greek yogurt instead of mayo if you wanted to cut out some calories and fat. Thanks for posting the seasonings! I loooove this sauce!

  12. How much does this make? just enough for 2 people/1 meal? thanks for this! plan to try it soon!

  13. MrsKosmo, this makes about 1 c. of sauce. Now I’m not sure how much you SHOULD consider a serving…probably just a tablespoon or two, but I usually use 1/4 cup on my rice. So one recipe could serve 2-4 people easily. At Genji’s (the restaurant that I first had this sauce at), they give you small cups of it that have about 1/4 c. in them.

  14. This is similar to the one I make at home. Mine is mayo, ketchup, garlic powder, worcestershire sauce and cayenne.
    I’m gonna try this variation!

  15. Thanks for the recipe but I have to ask… on the page that the link sends us to, did you at least “Buy (the guy) a beer!” via Paypal??? LOL I did!

  16. This was very good.. I added horseradish to mine to give it extra kick.

  17. This is definitely an American or stateside version because I had never heard of it nor had it until recently. No where near as good as the Asian ones which are definitely more authentic & better tasting. This is too heavy for real hibachi.

  18. I have actually perfected this recipe with a couple of adjustments:

    I use only 1/8 c. of water and 2.5 tspns. of ketchup instead of tomato paste as it is readily available. I think it helped to lighten up the taste a little (I agreed with Mabani).

  19. Do you have a recipe for the brown sauce that is served at most Japanese steakhouses. I love it.

  20. It’s got a pretty strong mayo after taste. I may try using less mayo next time.

  21. wow nice and delicious recipe lovely to taste …………………….. viva hyderbad

  22. Great, thanks for sharing, I could put this in a cup and drink it! Gonna pin it.
