This is a hearty and comforting dish that I like to make on cold, wintery days, or even during rainy days when I just feel like staying in and am craving something hearty. Yes, it's a bit labor intensive, but once you have tried it a few times, this recipe will become a cinch to make! This dish is also visually appealing and impressive, perfect to serve at a dinner party!
The key to making a tonkatsu that is crispy and golden on the outside and soft and tender on the inside is the same way you make super crispy french fries or Korean fried chicken-- you double fry them!! I prefer a thicker tonkatsu, so in this recipe, I used pork chops, but if you prefer them thinner, you can also pound your pork chops more thinly (though it would be bigger in size), or use a thinner cut of meat. Just make sure that you fry them for a shorter amount of time!Read More
