Directions

  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 was really good. The pork turned out very crispy and light. Service it with Awesome Rice Pilaf and Lucy's Quick Tonkatsu Sauce both from AllRecipes. Great meal. Thanks for posting

We love these pork chops, I use a whole pork loin when it is on sale, lightly freeze and slice very thin(no pounding necessary)...the first time I made them as is and they were good, but missing something. The second time I made them I seasoned the flour with garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper and they were fantastic! Such a small change made such a big difference in flavor!! My 9yr old that rarely eats much meat ate 6 of these...not sure where he put them ;-) Served with jasmine rice, stir fry veggies(frozen bag of stir fry blend + bag frozen broccoli), and buttered potatoes(chinese buffet style)...but the pork chops are always the highlight of the meal!!

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 Wegmans and Costco).
