Vegetable Fruit Sauce (Tonkatsu) BULLDOG, 500 ml
Sweet umami from vegetables and fruits
Tonkatsu sauce is sweet and tangy with a rather unique tinge of spicy flavor. It is best described as a type of Japanese barbecue sauce and is thicker than teriyaki in texture.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, when western food was starting to spread in Japanese homes, a shop called Misawaya (now Bull-Dog Sauce, established in 1902) developed a sauce that would suit Japanese tastes based on Worcestershire Sauce. It succeeded not as a cooking ingredient or secret ingredient, but as condiment used as is on western foods like cutlets and fried foods. After that, as "Bull-Dog Sauce" began to reach Japanese homes, it greatly impacted the development of Japanese food culture, starting with tonkatsu.
Tonkatsu Sauce mainly consists of vegetables and fruits such as tomatoes, prunes, dates, apples, lemon juice, carrots, onions, and celery. It also includes more than 10 kinds of spices along with soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar.
Super versatile umami boost for your barbecue, sandwiches, burgers, stews and even soup.
It gives fruity and a bit spicy uplift to anything you add it to. Definitely try mixing it with mayonnaise (and then use it as to brighten up your burger)!
