  1. Place the pork chops between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a 1/4-inch thickness (about .75 cm). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Pour oil into a skillet about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) deep. Heat the oil over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Place the flour, egg, and panko crumbs in separate bowls. Coat each cutlet in flour, then egg, and finally in bread crumbs. Tap off any loose crumbs.
  4. Fry the cutlets until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

This is ok but marinating the pork after being pounded thin, with Rice wine, and pinch of sugar and dash of sesame oil makes it more than a modified Austrian schnitzel which this basically is..

This was a great, basic Tonkatsu recipe! I also seasoned the pork chops with garlic and some ground ginger for added flavor. This was served with a salad and Tonton Ginger dressing (found at W...

Yummy and nutritious, quick and easy meal. My family like it. I add a little salt and pepper to the crumbs to make it tastier : )

Simple and delicious tonkatsu - it was perfect as is with no alterations. I did take some additional steps with some of my tonkatsu to make it into Katsudon. Amazing!
