Baked Tonkatsu

I absolutely love Japanese food. If you look through my recipe index, it is pretty obvious. Since I am currently in an Eastern European country, I don’t get very much Japanese cuisine. As a result, I have to make my own! Tonight’s dinner was a baked tonkatsu and bonus potato croquette.

  • 1 egg beaten
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a medium fry pan, toast the panko with olive oil until golden brown. Remove from heat.
  3. Lay a piece of parchment paper over the pork chops, and bang with a heavy skillet/saucepan to flatten.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Dust both sides of the pork with flour, removing any excess.
  6. Coat the pork with egg, and then dip into the toasted panko.
  7. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Repeat for remaining pork chops.
  9. Place into the oven and bake until an internal temperature of at least 145F, or about 20 minutes. 
Recipe Notes

To ensure the bottom gets crispy as well, put a cooling rack onto the baking sheet and lay the pork on top. 

Serve with rice and tonkatsu sauce.

    It’s a good alternative to the frying method if you don’t have as much time to clean, or are trying to eat a bit healthier. 🙂
