Tonkatsu/Pork Cutlets

Non Halal

Tonkatsu is one of the most beloved “western style” Japanese foods in Japan. It is thinly pound pork chop breaded with flour, egg, and Panko (bread crumbs), then deep fried. Tonkatsu is almost always accompanied by thinly shredded cabbage, curry sauce or with thick brown Worcester-based sauce.
I’ve been craving for this cutlet since I came home from my month long vacation in Japan. So I decided to make some for our dinner a few weeks ago. I serve it with rice and broccoli instead of curry sauce or tonkatsu sauce. It’s not the healthiest food but rather comfort food for me.
