I created this sauce in my own kitchen with ingredients I already had in my cupboard. The results are delicious and it has become a staple in my home. This recipe can easily be doubled. Try using it for dipping katsu chicken and egg rolls, or use it as a substitute for barbeque sauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Good base but needed some tweaking. I'm a Bulldog Tonkatsu Sauce fan. My next batch, I think I will use 3/4 c. ketchup and 1/4 c. either apricot or plum puree.

Lucy you hit the ball out of the park with this ton katsu sauce - better than the rather expensive Japanese bottled version. Thanks!
