Tonkatsu Pork Loin

This is hopefully will be the end result after you follow the recipe. This is the basic pork loin with out the typical rice and sauce serving.

Japanese Tonkatsu (pork loin)

Hello Everyone,

This is a quick an easy recipe to make at home for yourself or company. I first came across this recipe when in Gifu,Japan in a small Tonkatsu Restaurant. Please read the recipe first before making your dish.

You will need the following

Pork Loin about 1/4 pound and cut about 1/2 inch thick
1 egg
Panko Bread Crumbs
Cooking oil

1. Take your pork loin and put little cuts in the fatty parts to make it tender. Tenderize the pork loin like any other piece of meat with meat tenderizer or rolling pin.

2. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to each side

3. Put a lite coat of flour on each side of the pork loin.

4. Take about 1/2 egg into a bowl add about 1 table spoon of water, mix well, then dip both sides of the pork loin in it.

5. Dip the both sides of the pork loin in the panko flakes.

6. Place pork loin in cooking oil and fry until golden brown.

Notes: Make sure your oil is about 350F before putting your pork loin in. This meal is typically served over rice,caramelized onions and topped with an egg. I hope you enjoy this quick and tasty Japanese meal. I will publish later "How to make your own Panko Crumbs and dipping sauce" in another page.
