Tonkatsu it's a crispy and crispy Japanese fried pork cutlet with panko breadcrumbs. This homemade tonkatsu recipe is super simple and tastes like a restaurant.


  • Heat a pan of frying oil to 176°C (350°F).

  • Rinse the pork cutlets with cold water, pat dry with paper towels and season with salt and black pepper. Place the cornstarch, egg, and panko in three separate containers, side by side.

  • Lightly coat a piece of pork cutlet with a little cornstarch. Wipe off excess. Dip the pork cutlet in the egg and then immediately in the panko.

  • Make sure the pork cutlet is evenly coated with a layer of panko. Set aside for frying. Repeat the same operation with the remaining pork cutlets.

  • Fry the pork cutlets until golden brown. Drain them using a sieve and transfer them to a plate lined with absorbent paper. Cut the Tonkatsu into small pieces and serve immediately with some chopped cabbage and Tonkatsu sauce.
