    Okonomiyaki Sauce (お好み焼きソース) is brushed over the popular Japanese savory pancake, Okonomiyaki. Sweet, savory & packed with umami flavor, the sauce is very similar to Tonkatsu Sauce.

    When I make Okonomiyaki at home, I often whisk up the sauce quickly to serve with the pancake. Homemade version is always the best as you can adjust the taste to your liking.

    To make Okonomiyaki sauce :

    For a basic recipe of this essential condiment, all you need is ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, oyster sauce and sugar (or honey). Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well together. Have a taste and adjust any seasonings if needed. It’s that simple!
