What is Hibachi Sauce?

Hibachi sauce is a fresh and flavorful condiment that you might find at your local Japanese steakhouse to enjoy with hibachi steak, veggies and rice. It’s kind of similar to teriyaki sauce with soy sauce as its foundation. However, it’s blended with rice wine vinegar, chinkiang vinegar, and fresh ingredients like onion, garlic and ginger to really make the flavor come alive.

To balance all of the flavors, a bit of brown sugar and lemon juice is added, too. You’re going to adore the way it tastes! It has the best taste, and it’s perfect for dipping fried foods in, or drizzling over sautéed vegetables or smothering on top of your favorite meat dishes. Need some ideas? Karaage chicken (Japanese fried chicken), crispy shrimp, or egg rolls just to name a few.
