Hey AMW friends who loves to cook as much as I do!
I finally made it! A Pork Tonkatsu that tastes legit! *ahem* approved by the AMW family of course! (either it is truly yummy or they are just being nice!)
But here's the FINAL result! :P Nothing fancy, nothing restaurant-looking, but definitely a tummy-filling warm-to-the-heart-and-soul dish! (daming sinabi!:P)
- Pork Chops
- All Purpose Flour
- Panko or Bread crumbs
- Worcestershire sauce
- Oyster sauce
- Brown Sugar
- Sesame seeds/oil
- Cornstarch and water (to create slurry)
- I pounce each pork chop until "thin" and slice with tip of knife. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both side of meat and set aside as I prepare the breading mixture.
- Coat the meat with All Purpose Flour, dip in egg and cover with bread crumbs. I used to just use Egg and Bread Crumbs but All-Purpose Flour makes a huge difference to the "fluffier" texture of Pork Chops.
- Heat frying pan and pour oil in low fire setting. Fry each side of the pork chop until brown. Set the prok chop on a cooling rack as you prepare for the Tonkatsu sauce.
For easier Tokatsu Sauce, purchase Bullfrog on Japanese stores and selected supermarket near you. For me, I like to create my own by combining ketchup, Worcestershire Sauce, Oyster Sauce (both from Lee Kum Kee) and brown sugar in a bowl mixing everything together and add seasoning like salt and pepper to taste depending on liking. I also like to "thicken" the sauce by adding Cornstarch slurry and since I don't have sesame seeds, I add a drop or 2 of sesame oil.
Let me know if you tried this recipe!
