Minimal Katsu Sauce
Katsu sauce is basically Japanese BBQ sauce. You've encountered it if you've ever had katsu chicken/pork/beef at a Japanese restaurant. If you want to know katsu, I have a decent recipe here.
Traditional katsu sauce is a combination of ketchup, soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce, mustard (powder or dijon), a dash of garlic powder, a dash of salt… see what I mean? Japanese BBQ sauce. I'll do a traditional sauce at some point, but here's a pared-down minimalist sauce. It's not traditional, but it works really well. Personally, I like how the banana sauce does the heavy lifting, so you don't need a lot more.
So, mix together:
- 3/4c banana sauce (I like Jufran)
- 1/4c soy sauce
- 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- A pinch of salt and pepper
Mix together and let stand, covered, in the fridge for at least 30 minutes prior to serving. An hour is better.
