A tasty and easy Pork Tonkatsu recipe.
Trivia. Did you know that ton means pork and katsu means cutlet? So it’s actually redundant if you say pork tonkatsu. But I’m not gonna argue with my waiter when the menu says Pork Tonkatsu haha. My online Japanese OFW friend was explaining to me that she found it a bit funny when she saw chicken tonkatsu listed in one of our local restaurants. She’s not a snob mind you, her mind just couldn’t process the misdirect.
I first got a taste of Tonkatsu in college. I didn’t associate it with Japanese food then. Well, it was pork chop and breaded with flour and breadcrumbs then deep fried until crispy. It’s literally a kids dream. Then, as in now, I associated Japanese with healthy. Pork Tonkatsu is a bit of an aberration.
There are a few nice Japanese restaurants in Metro Manila that serves these excellent pork cutlets but they’re quite pricey. The good thing is, making pork tonkatsu is actually very easy. Most of the ingredients are available in our local supermarkets.
Here’s a quick and tasty pork tonkatsu recipe -okay, just tonkatsu. 🙂
