Low Carb Japanese Sesame Steak Sauce

japanese steak sauce

The original version of this recipe comes from Japan, and was reputedly adapted by a popular restaurant chain in Canada, Sawmill Steak House, where it has become a sensation.

You will love this unusual combination of flavors, to be enjoyed as a sauce or a dip. I use it to dip low carb veggie sticks, such as celery, cucumber. You could also make low carb keto flaxseed chips or fathead crackers to enjoy it with.

I have improvised slightly myself, and love the result, so please let me know what you think!
