If I had access to tempeh I would be so up to this challenge :)

Not the same thing, but a simple marinade of sesame oil+ginger+garlic+soy sauce+mirin+pepper tastes great with tempeh!

When I have the time I really like making the Smoky Grilled Tempeh from vcon to replace the prepackaged kind. I bet if you just sliced it in thin rectangles and used a variation on the marinade it could work for the sesame flavor:

That probably isn't very helpful since I don't have a recipe for sesame marinade, but it might help?

I've never tried this, but i'd start like this and then tweak a little...
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1-2 tablespoons agave or 1/2 tablespoon sugar
2 cloves garlic plus 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons ginger, minced
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon tahini?

plus maybe some extra salt and some neutral oil like canola...?
it SHOULD work, all those nice natural ingredients are listed on the package...

OOOOps, just saw that you already tried... what measurements did you use? did you use granulated ginger and granulated garlic?

it's more about the texture! the flavours would be easy enough to hack, but

Are you baking it covered or uncovered? Maybe try searing it in a pan and then baking covered to seal and keep in the moisture. And/or use more oil. I've never tried the product you are trying to recreate by the way.
