Keto Low Carb Benihana Ginger Sauce LowCarbingAsian Cover

Benihana Ginger Sauce


With summer well underway, so is our weekend BBQing!  At our house, we love to grill everything from seafood, chicken, Korean BBQ, beef, to veggies!  And of course, we always need a BBQ worthy sauce to pair with our BBQs!

Sometimes, we just use the good old salt, pepper and olive oil.  Other times, we may pair it with a low-carb/keto BBQ sauce or maybe a Keto Teriyaki Sauce.  Or if we’re in the mood for Japanese styled BBQ, we’ll pair it with our secret steak sauce, Keto Yakitori Sauce, or this low-carb/keto Benihana Ginger Sauce. 

We actually already released the low-carb/keto Benihana Ginger Sauce as part of other Benihana recipes, but since it pairs so well with virtually any BBQ ingredient, we decided to release it as its own recipe! 

This dipping sauce is a low-carb/keto copycat version of the sauce they serve at Benihana, so if you like that one, pair this low-carb/keto version at your next BBQ!

And best of all, it’s super easy to make!  All you need to do is chop up all the ingredients, zest some lemon and throw it all in the food processor (or blender may work too).  Then you pulse it until all the ingredients are mixed together and let it rest in the fridge for about 10 minutes.  

The reason you let it rest is to eliminate the air bubbles that are introduced during the pulsing.  This ensures the sauce settles and you don’t have an airy texture in the sauce.

This sauce comes in at a low-carb/keto friendly ~1g per tbsp and offers the traditional zesty zing of Benihana’s signature ginger sauce – a touch of sweetness, sourness and ginger spice! 

It pairs very well with chicken, beef and grilled vegetables!

For this recipe, you will need a couple of things: Soy Sauce, Rice Vinegar, Swerve/Monkfruit and food processor.  For the Rice Vinegar, make sure you are picking up the one that doesn’t have sugar added (which typically is a green label).  You will also have to use a food processor to make the sauce (you might be able to use a blender, but the consistency will be very runny).  Everything you will need can be purchased on Amazon or a local supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!
