How to Make Pork Katsu a.k.a Tonkatsu

Step-by-Step

  • 1Start by making a dredging station for the pork. Mix the flour, salt and Tony's together on one shallow bowl/plate. Beat egg and milk together and put on another bowl/plate. Pour the panko on the last bowl/plate. Make sure your bowl/plates are big enough for your chops.
  • 2Dredge the pork in the flour making sure to cover it, but shaking off the excess.
  • 3Dredge in the egg wash.
  • 4Dredge in panko. Make sure to give it a good covering.
  • 5Set aside on cooling rack that has a paper towel under it. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • 6while Chops are setting, heat enough oil on medium high to cover the chops about half way up. Once heated cook chops for a few minutes on each side till you get a nice golden brown color or check internal temperature to make sure it is done. If your pork chop is thicker then it will need to be cooked longer.
  • 7Let the chops rest on a clean cooling rack for about ten minutes. Then enjoy with some Katsu or BBQ sauce.
