Pork katsu is made with pork loin that is coated in panko breadcrumbs and fried to crispy perfection! It is also called tonkatsu, as "ton" translates to "pork" in Japanese.
You'll only need a few ingredients to make this easy recipe. Let's round them up and get started!
Place your pork in a plastic bag and then use the flat end of a meat mallet to pound the pork thinner.
Mix the flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl.
Crack the eggs into another shallow bowl and beat them. Then, pour some panko breadcrumbs into a third shallow bowl.
Heat up some oil, then dip each piece of pork into the flour, the eggs, and finally the breadcrumbs. Fry each piece for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
Serve your crispy pork katsu with scallion pancakes, miso soup, or some of your other favorite appetizers. Enjoy!
