For date night last week, I made pork tonkatsu! I’m very excited to blog about this because I did all the work myself…even THE. FRYING. PART. Simple ingredients, easy to put together…this is just such a great yummy homemade date night food :)
First, rinse the pork chops and pat dry. If the pork is moist and wet, the breading will end up being gunky and soggy.
Since our chops were on the extra thick side, I sliced them in half lengthwise and trimmed off the excess fat. Make sure it’s cut evenly throughout otherwise it won’t be cooking evenly throughout. If it does end up getting a little lopsided, feel free to pound it with a meat tenderizer.
Season both sides liberally with salt and pepper and set aside…
