For dinner last night, we had Tonkatsu. This is actually very simple to make, but I thought I would share it anyhow. =P
Go ahead and buy some lean pork steaks (you can also use chicken or beef). I bought this at the K-market and they have it labeled as "Tonkatsu" meat.
I then make myself comfortable on the kitchen floor and grab my meat tenderizer and a cutting board. Just pound away on the meat until it spreads out and becomes very thin.
Continue with the rest of your meat...I ended up using 9 patties. We eat a lot here~
Organize some panko crumbs, Korean pancake batter, and egss on the countertop in plates.
Season the pork on both sides with some salt and pepper and then dip it into the Korean batter mix first.
Then take that coated piece and dip it into the egg mixture.
Finally take the egg drenched meat and dip it into the panko mix and coat it thoroughly.
Fry it in oil (I used grapeseed) on medium-high heat until it is golden brown on both sides.
Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel...
And plate it with some rice, shredded cabbage with Thousand Island dressing, and dan-mooji.
We enjoyed it with a side of cream of corn soup....from the bag. =) Enjoy!
PS. This is the brand of tonkatsu sauce that I'm currently using. I haven't attempted to make this at home....YET. =P
