Non-Deep-Fried! Pork, Shiso Leaves, and Cheese Rolled Cutlets

Non-Deep-Fried! Pork, Shiso Leaves, and Cheese Rolled Cutlets

These are not deep fried, but they look and taste like they could be! The cheese oozes out! The shiso tastes great too.

Ingredients: 16 cutlets

Thinly sliced pork roast or loin (3 mm thick)
16 slices
Melting type sliced cheese
8 slices
Shiso leaves
16 leaves
100 g
● Flour
5 tablespoons
● Eggs
● Water
2 tablespoons


1. Dry roast the panko over medium heat in a pan until golden brown.
2. Combine the ● ingredients in a bowl.
3. Put 2 shiso leaves and 1/2 a slice of cheese on a slice of pork, and roll up. Dip the roll in the batter from Step 2, then coat with the toasted panko.
4. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, and line the rolls with plenty of space in between. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 390℉/200℃.
5. I used 3 mm thick pork slices but you can use thinly sliced pork instead.
6. When you cut into the middle, the cheese oozes out - delicious!
7. This is a sandwiched rather than rolled up version. You can use this method with regular tonkatsu meat too.
