How to Make Tonkatsu (Pork Cutlet)


Although tonkatsu is a Japanese dish originally, many Koreans have been falling in love with this dish, simply because it contains one of their favorite ingredients, pork. They love the crispy texture on the outside and the juicy goodness of the meat on the inside. Here is how to make this delicious dish.

The ingredients that you will need are: pork chops, a couple of eggs, some flour, bread crumbs, a wok with cooking oil, a cabbage, and tonkatsu sauce (you can buy these in pretty much any Asian store).

First take your pork chops and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Then cover it in plastic wrap and softly pound it out until it gets relatively thin.

Then pour out some flour on a plate or something flat. Then beat a couple of eggs in another plate-like object, but one that has more of a dip so it’s easier to dip something in the eggs. Also lay out bread crumbs on similar plates.

Now, heat up some cooking oil in a wok, and while it’s heating, take your sitting pork chops, cover it in flour, then dip it in the eggs, and finally cover it in bread crumbs. Once you have done that, drop it into the wok and cook until both sides are golden brown.

Once that is done, take your cabbage and finely shred it and serve it next to your tonkatsu. As for the tonkatsu and tonkatsu sauce, you can either serve it cut up with sauce on top or whole with sauce on the side for their liking.
