Mille-Feuille Tonkatsu with Sesame Miso Sauce

Mille-Feuille Tonkatsu with Sesame Miso Sauce

This is the most popular tonkatsu recipe in my family. You'll gobble the sweet sesame-miso sauce with rice.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Thinly sliced pork loin
18 slices
Salt and pepper
to taste
Plain flour
as needed
a little
as needed
Sesame Miso Sauce:
Ground sesame seeds
2 tablespoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Japanese Worcestershire-style Sauce
3 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
Tubed garlic (as desired)
1/2 teaspoon


1. Spread out the meat, and stack together. Once you have stacked 6 slices per serving, sprinkle the back with salt and pepper, and rub it in by hand.
2. It will stick together even when stacked this thick, so there's no need to worry.
3. Thoroughly coat the meat with flour, eggs, and panko in that order. Make sure to coat the edges as well.
4. Fry them up until golden brown in 340°F/170°C oil, and they are done.
5. Place the sesame-miso sauce into a microwave-safe container, mix, and microwave at 600 W for 20 seconds. Take it out, mix it again, repeat 3 times, and it is done.
6. The miso will thicken if you over-microwave the sauce, so be careful. You can reduce the amount of sugar for those of you that prefer a more moderate sweetness.
