JAPANESE RECIPE IDEAS – TONKATSU (DEEP FRIED PORK CUTLETS)

By

Hi There,

This is one of my favourite dish in our household, you can get to eat this in almost all Japanese restaurants, it usually comes with the deep fried pork cutlet, with sesame dressing or tonkatsu sauce ( a thickened worchershire sauce that goes very well with deep fried dishes)

Tonkatsu Don

 

* Meal for 4
Ingredients :
Pork Chop or Pork Loin x 4 – 6 pcs
Breadcrumbs x 1/2 pack, enough to coat all the pork chops
Egg x 1, beaten
Corn starch or plain flour X 1 table spoon

Directions :
1) Use paper towel to dry the pork chop, and pat it with corn starch and dip into the egg batter. (some of my japanese friend mix the corn starch with eggs together, that works as well)
2) Coat it with breadcrumbs, slightly pressed on it to let the crumbs stay firm on to the meat.
3) Heat oil (medium heat) during preparation of the pork chop, check oil temperature by dipping your chopsticks into the oil, if you see bubbles forming around the chopsticks, you are ready, fry for 1 min with high heat and turn to low heat, fry until golden crispy
4) Always sieve out any burnt crumbs from the oil
5) After finished deep frying, place it on paper towels to soak up any excess oil
6) Slice it or just cut it up with scissors, place it over the rice and dress it up with Japanese mayo & tonkatsu sauce or set it up on a nice plate & enjoy!

Sauce to go with :
Japanese mayo : great for making potato salad

Salad for side dishes :
Salad Greens or Romaine Lettuce – spin dry
Baby Tomato
Frozen corn kernels
Avocado
* Quantity are optional, and I prefer to get frozen corn kernels, because you can get to keep the rest in the fridge and use for longer time, compared to tin can or carton corn kernels.

I usually make a few more pieces so that I could pop them into the oven until crispy and make Tonkatsu sandwich, great for brunch or a lunch itself with some salad or coffee!

You can have different varieties of garnishes with it comes to deep fried pork chop (Tonkatsu), you can cook up some Japanese curry and make it Tonkatsu curry rice, or put some grated raddish (daikon oroshi) with citrus soya sauce (ponzu) and some spring onions, for a refreshing twist to the meal. ^^

Happy Cooking!

Cheers!

Dawn
