You say Donkatsu, I say Tonkatsu

Either way you say it, it's good. This version was made for me by a co-worker. She's from Korea and knows that Jim and I love Korean food. In fact, Jim even spent 8 months in Korea while in college studying abroad. He has lots of good memories from his time there and many of them involve food (and beer) .

To make this tasty dish at home, try this recipe.
Tonkatsu

4 boneless pork chops, 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons flour
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
Vegetable oil (for frying)

Pound pork to 1/4-inch thickness. Coat with flour, then dip into egg, and finally coat thoroughly with Panko. Deep fry in 1 inch vegetable oil, heated to 350ยบ, 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Top with tonkatsu sauce and serve on rice with some shredded cabbage and sliced pear.

Weirdly enough I can't stand the vegetable fruit sauce that goes with the Tonkatsu
