Goma Dare Mince Meat Chawanmushi using Mizkan’s Sesame Sauce with Roasted Nuts

Ever wondered if you were to purchase a bottle of salad dressing and other than using it for salads, what else can you use it for ? How about using them to whip up some nice warm Asian dishes where you get to eat with your daily scoop of rice or a bowl of piping warm porridge ? 

And so here you go ! It’s a Goma Dare Mince Meat Chawan Mushi which is cooked up using Mizkan Sesame sauce with Roasted Nuts which is also commonly used as a salad dressing. But this dish serves to deviate from the usual norm of serving it in a cold salad but instead being used as a seasoning to cook the mince meat which is eaten together with a steamed egg.


The name Goma Dare maybe quite foreign to us, but it simply means Sesame sauce in Japanese. And I guess everyone knows what’s a chawan mushi which to put in simply across, it’s a Steamed Egg Custard.

As the name implies, it’s actually a Mince meat in Sesame sauce on Steamed Egg. To be honest, it’s the first time I tried using Sesame sauce in this way. But I am glad it didn’t turn out too weirdly. Instead, I am quite surprised that the sesame sauce blends pretty well with the meat and eating it in huge scoopfuls together with the steamed egg proves to be quite surprisingly appetizing !

The sesame sauce provides for all the savoriness of the dish, hence you literally need no seasoning of the meat or the egg itself. And this dish goes along very well with some plain congee which I have had it together with. 

The original recipe was garnered from Catherine Hosoi’s Culinary Hobby Class, a very renowned Japanese food author. I have tweaked the recipe slightly for my preferences but the gist of it should be all there ! And all I can say is, it’s indeed a very simple, tantalizing and fuss free dish. Even if you are cooking it for dinner on a working weekday, it’s a dish that can be easily served up in 15 minutes.

Mizkan’s Seasme Sauce with Roasted Nuts can be found in most major supermarkets in Singapore. Other than as a salad dressing now, it can double up as a cooking cum seasoning ingredients in our daily homecook dishes.
Hope you enjoy this dish too !
