This is popular main course in Japan. I guess bit thick katsu compare to other Asian pork cutlet. Enjoy Japanese style katsu:)

Step 1: Ingredients / 2 Servings

- 2 pieces pork rib ( Normally in Japan, people get loin for Tonkatsu but I get rib pork at nearby store in Canada. because I feel like the loin is bit dry meat for me here. I prefer tender :)

- 2 medium eggs

- 3 cups panko ( bread crumbs)

- 2 cups flour Tonkatsu sauce ( worstersauce )

- Salt and pepper

- Shredded cabbage for topping

- Oil for frying

1. Heat the oil 170℃.( You can check the temperature with chopsticks. Dip a chopstick into the oil. If the oil starts steadily bubbling, the oil is ready for frying. Or you can also check with a little bread. Just drop a little bread into the oil.

2. Deep fry until it's nicely browned. It's for 4 to 5 min. (each side about 2 min and deep fry 180 for last 1 min. )

⭐️ Put them diagonally to drain excess oil.
