Cooking Tip: Sesame Oil

When balancing an Asian dish that is too spicy or salty, use good quality sesame oil.  When balancing other dishes, try a little vinegar and sugar.

    One of the easiest ways to intergrate sesame oil is putting a drop or two into Asian soups/noodle soups. It adds a slight toasty mellow flavor. Also, when I make hamburgers at home, I add a little sesame oil to keep the meat nice and juicy. Hope these ideas help.

    I love sesame oil and it’s suppose to be really good for you too. What are some other ways to use sesame oil?

    My family and I have been enjoying the food and we each have a favorite dish. Mine is the spicy sesame beef. As long the the food is the same, the name change is cool. We love your staff and hope you much success.

    You can find different grades of sesame oil at your local Asian grocery store. The one I like to use is Kadoya brand. It’s 100% pure and for the quality, very reasonably priced. Check out Anzen Market in NE Portland, H-Mart or Andongs Market on SE Powell. Thanks for the comment! Have a wonderful day :)
