HM Tonkatsu Sauce

TheBoy and I adore Okinomiyaki. It is a Japanese savory pancake that is, usually, never the same, each time prepared. Basically, its the Japanese way to clean out the refrigerator.

Throw whatever into a bowl, add flour, baking powder, and eggs.. and there is your batter..

Our favorite combination includes:

  • Baked Fresh Sweet Potato
  • Sweet Fresh Corn, cut off the cob
  • Chopped Fresh Napa Cabbage
  • Chopped Fresh Green Onions
  • Small Cooked Salad Shrimp

Thin pork center cutlets are sliced very thin.

On a greased, hot, skillet, you put 3-4 thin strips of pork, down to start cooking. Your savory chunky pancake batter is poured over the top. On top of the raw side, you sprinkle powdered green seaweed and bonito flakes. (I, just put a tiny pinch, of bonito flakes (Katsuabushi?) on, and take the Taurine, to try to stay ahead of the glutamate headache this will give me.. its not as good without it, but it is akin to putting on MSG.)

Flip when browned and brown on other side. Just like pancakes.

To serve, spread a thin layer of mayo (we used Vegenaise) and liberally top with Tonkatsu sauce, mixed 50/50 with catsup.

You could, easily, make your favorite pancake batter, with whole milk, and not buttermilk, and stir in your vegetables or meats or whatever you want, in it.. thin with milk, to batter consistency.

Because I don’t measure this, I don’t blog it, in the recipe blog.

But.. we, finally, tried this recipe, for the sauce!

OHMYGRAVY, this is good sauce.

So easy.. 1/2 cup worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup, each, catsup, sugar, and soy sauce.. medium heat.. simmer to reduce to about one cup.. Add (this is where I changed the recipe) 1 tsp ground dry mustard and 1/4 tsp ground allspice. I didn’t have any dijon mustard.

This thickened nicely. Now, we have to have Korroke, with it! Yum.
