About this deal

Mirin–A sweet rice wine for cooking. You can sometimes find it in regular supermarkets, otherwise head to your nearest Asian grocer or online. Sub with 1 tsp sugar if you need. Mayonnaise is an emulsion of oil, egg yolk, and vinegar. Oil and water in the yolk area mixture of two liquids that normally can’t be combined. Combine the wet ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine kewpie mayonnaise, tomato paste, melted butter, rice vinegar, and water in a medium bowl. Egg – Our recipe uses a whole egg at room temperature. American readers should make sure to use a pasteurised egg (this is not usually an issue in Australia). Read up on how to pasteurise an egg at home if you need. Sub with two egg yolks for a more traditional Kewpie.

Yum yum sauce is the famous Japanese steakhouse sauce. It actually became famous in Japanese restaurants and hibachi grills in the United States and is not really found in Japan.

What is the Difference Between Japanese Mayo and Regular Mayo? Not sure about adding mustard? It’s not included just for the taste but also to further stabilize the emulsion as it contains small amounts of lecithin. 4. Add dashi powder for umami flavorKewpie mayonnaise is Japan’s favorite mayonnaise and salad dressing brand. Invented in 1924, it’s pretty much ubiquitous in every Japanese kitchen. It’s rich, yet light, and incredibly delicious. Kewpie mayonnaise is so beloved in Japan that they even have specialty Kewpie mayo cafes to celebrate all things Kewpie. There’s even a Kewpie mayo terrace slash museum where you can learn all about Kewpie, get samples, and make your own! Never use old oil or extra virgin olive oil, as it won’t emulsify well. 2. Make sure the egg yolks are at room temperature Kewpie mayonnaise is my number one condiment of choice. I love it with fries, I love it on sandwiches, I love it as a dip, I just LOVE it. If you’ve never had Kewpie mayo or you have heard of it but haven’t tried it, you need to. It will change your life, I’m not even kidding. Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise differs from traditional western mayonnaise by only using egg yolks (as opposed to the whole egg) to make it creamier and also the addition of monosodium glutamate (or MSG) that gives it its umami flavor. American mayo typically tastes tangier than Japanese mayo due to more vinegar. Kewpie mayo includes monosodium glutamate (MSG), which gives an umami flavor. Since I don’t keep a bag of MSG brand Ajinomoto at home, I add dashi powder (MSG-free) instead to give a similar umami flavor. The umami from kombu and Katsuobushi in the dashi powder works in the mayonnaise. 5.Gently pour in the oil in a thin, steady stream

Extras: you’ll need melted butter to add richness, sugar to counteract the acidity of the tomato paste, and water to thin out the sauce a bit. These help create the perfect balance between all of the ingredients. What is kewpie mayo? When the founder of Kewpie, Toichiro Nakashima, was interning in the UK and US for the Japan Department of Agriculture and Commerce during the 1910s, he was first introduced to mayonnaise which soon gave him the idea to make his own variety. He named the condiment after the baby-faced character that soon showed up as dolls and mascots for other products that represented a cherry and merry personality. What does Kewpie mayo taste like?

Making it at home is also a fraction of the cost.In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the cider vinegar and dashi, if using, to a simmer (if you aren't using dashi, just simmer the vinegar). Cook, adjusting the heat to keep it simmering, not boiling, for 3 to 5 minutes, until reduced to about 1 tablespoon.

Thankfully you don’t have to go to Japan to experience the magic of Kewpie. You can find it, in its signature squeeze bottle with a red flip top at most grocery stores these days, in the Asian aisle. The mayo itself is a bit more golden that your standard mayo and much more creamy and luxurious.
