Some days you’re craving that sweet savory pork goodness that is Pork Katsudon. But all that oil and splatter is making you think twice about making it. Good thing air fryers are now available in most homes. If you haven’t got one yet, you can check my air fryer review here. I have the Hanabishi Hafeo air fryer which also serves as my small oven and I think that’s the best option if you’re considering buying an air fryer.

In addition to its ease of use, I’d be sure to call out how quickly this air fryer can whip up favorites compared to traditional methods. Fried foods often take 20+ minutes in oil but the Hanabishi air fryer has you covered in as little as 15 minutes depending on quantity. No preheating long waits means faster snacks and suppers for your fam.

However, I digress. So, if, you want to try something new and exciting for dinner tonight, look no further than air fryer pork katsudon! In this post, I’ll show you how to make a healthier, quicker, and more customizable version of the classic Japanese dish that your whole family will love.

Healthier Alternative to Traditional Katsudon

If you’re like most people, you probably love the taste of crispy, breaded pork cutlets in katsudon. But did you know that deep-frying can add a ton of unnecessary fat and calories to your dish? That’s where air frying comes in. According to a study, air frying can reduce the amount of fat and calories in fried foods by up to 75%. So, by using an air fryer to cook the pork cutlets instead of deep-frying them, you can enjoy the same crispy texture without the added fat and calories. Plus, air frying is a cleaner and safer cooking method than deep-frying, which can be messy and potentially dangerous.

As a busy parent or professional, you probably don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. That’s why the Air Fryer Pork Katsudon is the perfect recipe for you. On average, air frying takes 20% less time than traditional frying methods.

Plus, you don’t have to worry about oil splatters or a greasy kitchen. Gasp! No more cleaning splatters, Moms~!

Customizable to Your Liking

One of the best things about Air Fryer Pork Katsudon is that you can customize it to your taste. According to a survey, 87% of people prefer to cook at home because it allows them to customize their meals to their liking. With this recipe, you can adjust the seasoning and sauce to your taste, and use local ingredients (some of us will have no idea what Mirin is or even if we have, we don’t stock it in the pantry.
