Yum Yum Sauce

Our local Japanese steak house makes the most fabulous white sauce. They serve it, like most other Japanese steak houses, with their hibachi dinners. I always ask for more, and I even ask for a to-go cup to take home with my leftovers. One day at lunch as I was warming my leftovers I realized I had forgotten to ask for a cup of white sauce. Oh, the horror! So I turned to the internet to search for a recipe.

I had no idea that the white sauce is such a closely guarded secret. The recipe was elusive! However, I did come across a recipe for Yum Yum Sauce, which is very similar. In fact, we like it so much that we’ve used it just about everything. It’s a great dipping sauce for french fries and chips. It’s fabulous on hamburgers. It’s one of the key ingredients on my Fried Green Tomato BLTs. You can use it on anything!
