se.”

 

Then, Sebastian-san put the Worcestershire sauce on the fire and added some grated vegetables, seasonings, and spices to adjust the taste.

 

After a while, I tasted the result and found that it was indeed the Worcestershire sauce that I had been looking for.

 

I remember it was quite difficult to make homemade Worcestershire sauce even if I knew the recipe.

 

As I thought, Sebastian-san was no ordinary man.

 

“Amazing! This is exactly the sauce I was looking for!”

 

“Thank you very much.
It is true that the sauce is not too strong or too light, so it seems to bring out the flavors of the ingredients.”

 

“Um, would you mind telling me later how you made this?”

 

“Yes, of course.
I also would like to improve this sauce in many ways.”

 

Now that I know that Sebastian-san is a perfect superhuman, I will indulge him.

 

“Well then, I’ll make some modifications to this sauce and make a sauce that goes well with today’s main course.”

 

“Mmm-hmm.
May I ask you to teach me how to make it?”

 

“Of course!”

 

To be honest, I thought Worcestershire sauce would be enough, but I wanted chuno or tonkatsu sauce if possible.1Actually, Tonkatsu sauce and the Worcestershire sauce commonly used in Japan are similar things and can be used interchangeably.
Additionally, “Chuno sauce (中濃ソース)”, a type of Japanese brown sauce, is also something like Tonkatsu sauce and (Japanese-style) Worcester sauce, and in fact, these brown sauces are made with almost the same ingredients.

I tried to make a tonkatsu sauce from my memory and added ingredients similar to the one I had in my head to the Worcestershire sauce.
Fortunately, this world already had something similar to ketchup, so I added ketchup, lemon juice, sugar, and a little soy sauce and simmered it down.

 

When the sauce had thickened to the right consistency, I took it off the heat and it was ready to be used as a tonkatsu sauce.

 

Now it is time to fry the pork cutlets.

 

Flour, egg, and breadcrumbs are quickly coated to the cutlets and deep-fried one after another.

 

The fried pork cutlets were piled up one after another, forming a pork cutlet tower.

 

It would have been impossible for one person to fry this amount of pork cutlets, and I am very grateful to Sebastian-san.

 

I left the frying to Sebastian-san and started preparing for pork cutlet sandwiches.

 

I felt sorry to leave the hardest part of the work to Sebastian-san, but he kindly took care of it.

 

While frying the pork cutlets, he added soy sauce, sugar, mirin, and sake to the broth he was preparing, dropped a few pieces of pork cutlets into it, simmered them, and at just the right moment, dipped them in egg.

 

This is a very easy process as long as the frying is done.

 

Because we made a lot of broth, all we had to do was repeat the process.

 

“It’s a very interesting idea, isn’t it, to take something that has already been fried, simmer it in broth, and then coat it with egg?”

 

“Yes, the batter is moist, unlike a deep-fried pork cutlet, but it has just the right amount of sweet and spicy flavor.
Plus, the mildness of the egg gives it a very appetizing taste.”

 

“I see.
The cuisine from the young mistress’s world is simple but highly innovative.
It’s wonderful.”

 

I am embarrassed when people praise my hometown like that.

 

Let’s use the time to simmer the katsu toji2Pork Katsu Toji is a Japanese rice dish consists of a deep fried pork cutlet topped with scrambled eggs and usually accompanied with a light soya sauce to give it more taste.
Some chefs like to add other condiments such as onions.

I asked Gail-san to buy a large quantity of soft bread that was as moist and medium-textured as possible.

 

After cutting the bread into appropriate sizes, I spread butter and mustard on one side.

 

I really prefer hot pepper, but as expected, I couldn’t get it.

 

Then, the pork cutlet dipped in tonkatsu sauce was placed on top of the shredded cabbage, and another bread was placed on the other side of the cutlet to complete the dish.

 

For half of the pork cutlet sandwich, I dipped the pork cutlet in tonkatsu sauce with pre-mixed mustard to give it a slightly tangy flavor.

 

“Hmmm, now you make sandwiches with fried meat dipped in a generous amount of sauce.
I often make sandwiches myself, but it seems to be a sufficient staple food when the volume of the ingredients is so solid.
Especially for carnivorous beastmen, I think it will be very much welcomed.”

 

“I have to admit that I would be full just by eating two or three of these.
The sauce is so rich that by the time you eat it, it has soaked into the bread, making it very tasty.”

 

“I see what you mean.
This is something that even my busy master and mistress would be happy to enjoy as an easy meal.
I will definitely let them try it.”

 

“I would be very happy if it was to the liking of Virgil-sama and Rickham-sama!”

 

The pork cutlets are all fried just in time, and the three main courses are complete.

 

I also quickly prepared a seaweed salad and miso soup with mushrooms, which I wanted to drink, and served it with rice.
Now everything was ready.

 

Looking around at the finished amount, I wondered what kind of party was going to be held.
It is easy to imagine that all of them will be gone soon.

 

“Sebastian-san, if you don’t mind, would you like to try some of this?”

 

“I appreciate the offer, but I have to go back to the house now and take care of my masters.”

 

“I see.
I am so sorry for troubling you.
Oh, if you don’t mind, I’ll have this dish packed and ready in no time.
It would be a shame for Sebastian-san not to be able to eat it after all the hard work we put into making it together.”

 

“Thank you very much.
I am also very interested in this dish, so I will take you up on your offer.”

 

I hastily prepared a container and filled it with food one after another.
I made it into a bento-style lunch box.

 

It was quite a lot, but Sebastian-san easily held it up with one hand.

 

“Well then, young mistress, please take care of Gail-sama from now on.
If there is anything I can do to help you, I will come to your aid immediately.”

 

“Thank you so much for today.
It would have been very impossible without Sebastian-san.
I may cause you trouble in the future, but I look forward to working with you.”

 

With a bow, elegant as ever, Sebastian-san disappeared from the place.

 

No, not metaphorically.
He has really vanished.

 

Yes, I think I’m getting used to it by now and I’m getting influenced in thinking that Sebastian-san would have done it.

 

And now, here we go.

No excuse, but if you like it, please consider buying me boba tea.
Thank you!
