Katsu Pork Sandwich

August 21

Truth be told the Japanese love western style food! They even call it “yoshoku”, so it’s no shock that they have a twist on one of Japan’s most popular dishes, katsu curry. And we aren’t complaining, this sandwich is heavenly. You can use thinly shredded white cabbage here if you can’t get your hands on Chinese cabbage. Enjoy!

Method
  1. Pound each pork cutlet until 1/2 inch thick, almost the size of the slice of bread. Season both sides of each cutlet with salt and pepper. Place the flour, egg and panko in three separate wide dishes. Coat the pork steak thoroughly in the flour, patting off any excess, then into the egg. Then completely coat on all sides with the panko. Repeat with remaining cutlets.
  2. Fill a large pan with about 1/4 inch of oil and place over medium heat. Once it has reached 180°C/350°f, add the coated steaks one at a time and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  3. While they are cooking, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Brush both sides of each slice of bread with the tonkatsu sauce followed by the cabbage and fried pork on one side and top with the other slice.
