Authentic Japanese Village Steak Sauce Recipe

A while back I visited our local version of the Teppanyaki steak house (a store called  Japanese Village). I’ve been there several times over the many years it’s been around and on this visit I remembered that I always wanted to know the recipe for the “Steak Sauce” they served.

After some asking around I located a fellow who knows someone who worked there and knew the recipe. Even better they’d call me and read it from the actual recipe sheet at the store. It was fun to be texting back and forth while this person was in the kitchen at the restaurant getting one or two ingredients at a time while they tried to hide what they were doing. Very cool spy stuff.   The recipe produced a very large quantity that they made for the restaurant but I’ve been able to convert it to a smaller and more manageable size for home use. This is the only alteration made.

While the brand names of the ingredients used were not given, you should be able to get the right taste if you use high quality stuff.

I’ve had many..MANY requests to find this recipe and so here it is in all it’s glory. This is the original and not one of the guesses I’ve seen online. It’s simple and has that taste that keeps visitors to the restaurant pouring it on everything they eat there.


  • ¾ cup  Soy Sauce (Japanese Shoyu type)
  • 1 cup  Vegetable Oil
  • ½ cup Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • ½ tablespoon Dry Mustard

  • ½ cup Chopped Onion (One small Onion)
  • ½ cup Whipping Cream


  1. Place soy sauce, sesame seeds, onion and garlic in a blender and mix on high for 30 seconds.
  2.  Add remaining ingredients and blend until fine.
