Our Family's Delicious Tonkatsu

Our Family's Delicious Tonkatsu

Whenever I make tonkatsu with this recipe, my family tells me, "Today's tonkatsu was delicious!"

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Pork filet (or any cut)
1 (about 500-600g)
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Soup stock granules
a small amount
Garlic powder
a small amount
2 tablespoons
White flour
2 tablespoons
Panko (fine crumbs are better)
as needed
Frying oil
as needed


1. Cut the pork into bite-sized pieces. Shake the salt, pepper, soup stock granules and garlic powder onto a tray.
2. Lay the pork in the tray.
3. Season the pork with the mixed seasoning evenly.
4. If you have lots of pork, lay the pork pieces one on the top of another.
5. Beat an egg in a bowl, add the flour and milk (2 tablespoons each) and mix very well. Do not worry about the lumps.
6. Dip the pork in the egg mixture, and coat with panko. This makes it a bit easier.
7. Deep fry the pork in 360°F/180°C oil. After frying, lay the pork on paper towels over a fish grill to drain off excess oil.
