yakisoba sauce

Yakisoba is a Japanese dish that is similar to chow mien. There is meat, veggies all stir fried with noodles. The noodles you by in the store usually come with a powder packet for the yakisoba flavor. I have been searching and searching for a recipe to replace the MSG loaded packets, but can't ever quite get the same taste!! Well, this is a recipe that I made up combining a bunch of recipes and things that I wanted in it and it finally came out the way I wanted! This is as close to the packet as I have ever had!

3 T. Ketchup
3 T. soy sauce
1 T. Bulldog sauce (tonkatsu sauce: if you don't have access to this, skip it, it just wont taste quite the same)
splash of Worcestershire
1/2 t. sesame oil
1 t. sake
1/4 t. garlic chili sauce (the spicy red sauce by seracha in the store. if you don't have this, you can use hot sauce)
grated fresh ginger (I did about 20 grates...)
1 t. minced garlic

At the end of mixing, add more of whatever to taste!
