Sesame Sauce for Steak

I posted this in Sauces some time ago, and someone asked me about it so I am posting it here too. I can't remember who asked about it but here it is.

1/4 cup tahini paste
2 tbsp soy sauce (lighter is better)
1/4 tsp each of:
-ginger
-salt
-paprika (small tsp)
1 tbsp mayo (low fat is fine)
3 tbsp water
1 tsp prepared garlic (I use one fresh minced clove)

Original recipe says to heat it up and blend, I just toss it all in my little food processor and hit the button til it looks good. I also frequently add more soy sauce instead of water and a little extra garlic is good too. Serve with your BBQed steak.

Yes, the tahini paste is basically ground up sesame seeds.

Gotcha. I have heard that tahini paste can be used in lieu of peanut butter for some applications. Know anything about that?

I think I have heard the same thing, but not sure why you would do it. To me it is a different taste entirely. They do have the same consistency though.

Alix, that sauce sounds fantastic, I copied it, but does it have to be cooked. I got rid of my nuker as I never used it. Guess I could just heat on the stove top.

This sounds really tasty. I do not eat mayo though. Do you think I could leave it our and maybe use a little more tahini or tahini/soy or tahini water or something?

I guess the mayo is more or less a binder and smooths out the flavors. I'd leave it out and see what happens. Do you eat cream cheese? Maybe just a bit of that for firmness smoothed out with some milk? I'm brainstorming here and you know how bad it hurts to do that! Sour cream? Greek yogurt? Nothing?
