Please let brag a little. Ever since I learned to make Tonkatsu it has been a family favorite.   In fact whenever we eat out we don't order this dish anymore because my version is really good.  I get requests to make this at least 4 times a month. 

Try out this recipe it is super easy to make, and I guarantee you will love it.

4 pork chop pieces, we prefer using butterfly cut
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
vegetable oil for deep frying

1. Flatten the pork pieces.  Season with salt and pepper.
2. Dredge the pork in flour, then dip in egg, then coat and pat with panko bread crumbs.
3. Deep-fry on both sides, until golden brown, then drain on paper towels.
4. Let it stand for about 5 minutes, then cut tonkatsu into pieces.  Serve with shredded cabbage and tonkatsu sauce.

Recipe for tonkatsu sauce:
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup mirin
1 tablespoon sugar

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.  This will make about 3 cups of sauce, refrigerate the extra sauce, this will keep for about a week.
