Sesame and Miso Tonkatsu Sauce

Sesame and Miso Tonkatsu Sauce

Even my husband, who doesn't like miso cutlets, loves this sauce. Everyday tonkatsu seem to taste more delicious than usual.

Ingredients: 2 to 4 servings

Miso (I use a cheap miso with dashi from Marukome)
2 1/2 tablespoons
Water (plus dashi stock granules if the miso doesn't have dashi in it)
50 ml
Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons
Mirin
1 1/2 tablespoons
Ground sesame seeds
To taste

Steps

1. Bring the mirin to a boil in a frying pan. Add the miso, sugar, and dashi stock or water, and simmer over low heat until thickened. Throw in the ground sesame seeds and that's it.
