Pork Tonkatsu

with Miso Green Cabbage & Brown Rice

Pork Tonkatsu with Miso Green Cabbage & Brown Rice

Tonkatsu is a Japanese dish similar to Austrian Weiner Schnitzel that’s usually served with shredded cabbage. The traditional method of preparation is to deep fry thin cutlets of pork loin that are coated in panko breadcrumbs. Here, we pan fry the pork, and serve it with a sauce reminiscent of the Worcestershire-flavored tonkatsu sauce it’s known for.

Pork Tonkatsu with Miso Green Cabbage & Brown Rice ingredients
  • ¾ Cup Brown Rice
  • ¼ Green Cabbage
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1 Scallion
  • 1 Cup Milk

3 Prepare the pork:
With your knife parallel to the cutting board, butterfly the pork by making a horizontal cut half way through the thickness of the meat so you can open it like a book. Using the bottom of a pan or a flat meat mallet, pound the pork to ¼–inch thickness.
