Sesame Dipping Sauce

I had a craving the other night for that sesame dipping sauce you get at a teppanyaki restaurant. You know, the one they serve with your steak and wish you could "drink" when no one is watching? YEP..that ONE!

Well I played around with it and it's actually almost a copy cat of the sesame sauce at Japanese Village....Maybe even better

2/3 cup (or more) white sesame seeds, toasted in a pan over med heat until just golden brown
1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoon of water..or more
1/4 cup of low sodium Kikkoman soy sauce. **Do not substitute**
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 cup white onion, finely chopped

2-3 tablespoons of sugar
2-3 tablespoon of rice vinegar
A squeeze of lemon juice
Put everything in the blender until smooth. You would normally serve this with grilled beef or shrimps, great for dipping fresh salad rolls. The possibilities are endless.
***Please keep in mind that I don't really measure all the ingredients, I just gave you guide lines and you add or modify the recipe to your liking. As an example if you did not have rice vinegar on hand, substitute with just lemon juice.
