‘Yakiniku’ Sauce is a dipping sauce for Japanese style BBQ. My family’s ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce is very versatile and can be used as a seasoning sauce for many dishes. It goes very well with Avocado and Tofu as well. This is a healthy and very nutritious ‘Hiyayakko’, a Japanese dish of cold Tofu. You don’t like Tofu? Try this one. I am confident you will enjoy it.
