This sweet and spicy sauce goes beautifully with Japanese katsu (fried pork or chicken cutlets, dredged in Panko crumbs).

This went great on baked chicken breasts - thanks, Tracy!

I found this to be a little too sour. Tonkatsu sauce should be much sweeter and more fruity than this.

Made pork tonkatsu last night, this sauce was a great substitute for Bulldog Sauce, which is not available here. We used a tad more applesauce a tablespoon total.
