Bachan’s Original Japanese Barbecue Sauce

It is delicious used traditionally as a BBQ sauce, but is also great on a variety of dishes including noodles, sheet pan dinners, and makes a great marinade. We love it as a dipping sauce for meats, veggies, and noodles, and it’s delicious on scrambled eggs. The flavors enhance the meal perfectly.

This cold-filled sauce is free of additives, preservatives, and artificial flavors, and it’s delivered in a chef-inspired squeeze bottle that is easy to use. The combination of ingredients includes soy sauce, sugar, mirin, tomato paste, ginger, green onion, rice vinegar, garlic, salt, and toasted sesame oil. This gives the sauce a familiar vibe that’s reminiscent of teriyaki, but less sticky-sweet.

About Bachan
Judy Yokoyama was born in California in 1936 and, during World War II, was imprisoned at Camp Amache internment camp. She survived the camp and went on to start a large, boisterous family, earning the pet name Bachan (a variation of obachan, which is a term of endearment for granny used by some Japanese speakers). The family-owned company’s founder Justin Gill says,

For as long as I can remember, my Bachan—you might say Granny—would cook up the most amazing meals with our umami–filled, teriyaki-ish sauce! The recipe has been passed down and perfected over generations and today, my family and I are honored to share our authentic Japanese Barbecue Sauce with you.
