Tonkatsu 30 recipes

Tonkatsu is made of pork slices that are dipped in an eggy batter and coated with panko bread crumbs. If you can't find panko, grate some stale bread to blanket your cuts of pork. The term is composed of "ton(pork)" + "katsu(cutlet)" and dates back to the late 1800s, when Japanese chefs began copying the tempura process with pork, which was first imported into the country around that time.
