  • About

An invariable disappointment to those who expect the standard Chinese restaurant mustard sauce—an acrid blend of dry mustard and water—this is a silky sauce lush with the flavors of dark sesame oil and Dijon mustard. It will keep forever in the refrigerator.


  • ½ cup unflavored Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup Japanese sesame oil
  • 3 table


Whisk all of the ingredients together until well blended. Store, refrigerated, in an impeccably clean glass jar. If the sauce separates, simply whisk it to emulsify.
