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.
