An Asian recipe I'm trying calls for sesame oil. However, the only bottle I found is $6, and since I'm only using a tablespoon if it, and am on a tight budget, I don't want to spend that much just to not use most of it. Is there a good substitute for the sesame oil? I'm making a "cheater" Korean beef dish if that helps at all.
Update: I tried it with extra virgin olive oil instead and it turned out fantastic! I'm not sure how much different it would have been with the sesame oil, but it was pretty great without it. The recipe can be found here.
