Great with rice…
Great with veggies…
Great with seafood…
Great with steak…
Just plain great.

White sauce is crazy simple to make, and the refrigerator does the work of developing all that flavor for you. This is my daughter’s version of the traditional sauce often served in Japanese Steakhouses. She makes it sans butter and eggs, but with plenty of flavor. Even meat eaters love it. It is creamy with a blend of well choreographed spices. Paprika happens to be a favorite flavor of my dd, but if you don’t love paprika quite as much as she does, you can use the lesser amount suggested.

Also great with nori rolls and tempura tofu.

    Hello:) Does the t stand for tablespoon or teaspoon?
    Also, what kind of chili garlic sauce did you use?

      Good question! As it is my daughter’s recipe, I am not sure which brand she used. I think she has used different brands with very good results. Something like this one – Huy Fong Vietnamese Chili Garlic Sauce http://www.amazon.com/Huy-Fong-Vietnamese-Chili-Garlic/dp/B0006SKCVI.
      In my recipes, the lower case t. is teaspoon and the upper case T. is tablespoon.
      I hope you love the sauce! 🙂
