What's a superb white sauce recipe? I'm trying to remember one from years ago using corn starch but all I can find are recipes with ketchup and tomato paste.
>google "japanese white sauce"
>every recipe uses tomato paste
Apparently that's one of the ingredients, OP. When every recipe includes it then it's obviously an essential part of the sauce. Are you afraid of tomatoes or something?
>Try Google you lazy little, weeaboo cunt.
Already did. That's the problem. Google brings up too many options:
-Bechamel and various variations of it
-Some kind of Mayo-based BBQ sauce from Alabama
-The "white gravy" from the US south, also called country gravy or sawmill gravy
...and so on.
>I've been trying good sir but I can't find one that seems authentic.
That's because it's not authentic, it's a US thing. The sauce you are describing is virtually unheard of in Japan.
>almost any Japanese restaurant is gonna know what you mean by white sauce.
Maybe this is a regional thing? I've been to countless Americanized Japanese places in TX and LA and I've never once seen it.
