Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner…and then some

In the kitchen at Di's House

Baked Tonkatsu

on October 14, 2014

I’ve been craving Japanese food recently.  Two of the dishes I order when we go out are tempura udon and katsu donburi.  Unfortunately, I don’t think any of the restaurants here serve either of those.  Mostly we get teppanyaki or fusion (like crawfish sushi).  Tonight I tried baked tonkatsu.  The “secret” to this recipe is browning the panko in oil, prior to breading the pork.  I had the oven on earlier today so I just put a pan of panko in the oven to toast, instead of sauteeing.  Here are the cutlets before baking.


And after….


I sliced the pork added some broccoli, and served it all over rice with tonkatsu sauce.  Oishikatta!
