Tonkatsu (Deep Fried Pork Chop)

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I had cook up a big pot of yummy Japanese curry in my earlier post. What is good to be serve together with yummy curry? I had chosen to cook Tonkatsu (Deep Fried Pork Chop) as I always love fried food. Tonkatsu is a deep fried breaded cutlet which is good to be eaten on it's own and with other dishes too.


2 pork chops
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying

  1. Cut the edge of pork chops in several places. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the pork.
  2. Put flour lightly on the pork. Dip the pork in beaten egg.
  3. Put panko on the pork and pat them well.
  4. Heat oil in wok. Wait till the oil was hot and deep fry for a few min. Turn over the pork chops and fry a few more min. Repeat the process till the pork was golden brown.
  5. Take out the pork and put them on a paper towel to drain the oil.
  6. Cut each tonkatsu into small pieces.
