It’s tangy and appetizing and very similar to American steak or barbecue sauces, but with an Asian touch.
A very simple sauce using four ingredients that you can easily modify to your own taste. A classic Japanese condiment, it’s typically served with deep fried cutlets such as tonkatsu, tori katsu, or tofu katsu (find recipe here). It’s tangy and appetizing and very similar to American steak or barbecue sauces, but with an Asian touch. It also goes well with grilled meat.
Serves 2 portions of tonkatsu
- 3 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2-3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Put all ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well until sugar is dissolved. Adjust to your taste according to how tangy you want your tonkatsu sauce to be by adding more or less of each ingredient. Sauce can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
