Yummy Pork Tonkatsu

Japanese Pork Tonkatsu Recipe

Pork Tonkatsu Recipe is popular Japanese food. It has a crispy and delicious taste and is easy to prepare.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • Tonkatsu sauce
  • Four pork chops cut in the center at least ½ inches thick
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Canola oil
  • Two well-beaten eggs
  • ½ cup of flour
  • One head of finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 ½ cups of panko bread crumbs


  1. Take the pork chops and begin making the cuts. We recommend cutting two slits at least two inches apart through the connective tissue and fat on each pork chop you have.
  2. Then, season the pork with salt and pepper.
  3. Take a heavy-bottomed skillet and turn the heat on medium. Add two inches of oil to the skillet and heat it to 350F.
  4. Add bread crumbs to one plate, flour to another, and beaten eggs inside a bowl.
  5. Take the pork chop. First, coat it in flour, then dip it in the eggs, and finally, coat it with bread crumbs as you pat it down to fully coat.
  6. Repeat this process with all the pork chops.
  7. Add the pork chips to the oil and deep fry them individually. Turn the pork chops as needed for eight to ten minutes or until the pork is cooked through and the bread is golden.
  8. Remove the pork chops from the pan and drain them on a wire rack set on the baking sheet. Let the pork chops rest for a few minutes before you begin slicing.
  9. You can serve the pork chops with Tonkatsu sauce and shredded cabbage.
