All-purpose Yukhoe Sauce for Steak, Seared Meats and Fish

All-purpose Yukhoe Sauce for Steak, Seared Meats and Fish

This yukhoe sauce is popular in our house. It goes with a lot of dishes besides yukhoe.


1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Bottled yakiniku (grilled meat) sauce
2 tablespoons
Sesame oil
2 1/2 tablespoons
1/2 to 2 teaspoons
Grated garlic
to taste (a generous amount tastes better)
Sesame seeds
1 tablespoon


1. Combine all the ingredients and mix well. The sauce is done. I add some chopped green onion just before serving.
2. To use on yukhoe, mix the sauce with some finely julienned cucumber and apple while tasting. I mix 90 g of cucumber and apple with 2 tablespoons of sauce.
3. I serve this mixture in individual portions, each topped with a raw quail egg as shown here. This goes well with rare steak and other seared meats, fish, or roast beef.
4. The sauce is also delicious with garlic chips as shown here. Mix the garlic chips with the sauce to serve, as in Step 3.
