Another one of my favourite ways to enjoy pork. Our trip to Vancouver to once again enjoy a tonkatsu japadog just won’t come fast enough so I had to make some here at home. So nummy, so easy, and really not that bad for you. Avoiding the deep frying really does that. I also modified the breading so that we get more fibre out of it. It’s been so busy and hectic over here, with japanese being my comfort food I guess it comes as no surprise that here is another japanese style recipe to share. Hehe. I love the crunch of this dish, it tastes and sounds like naughty! Being a huge ketchup lover that tonkatsu sauce is nothing but epic win for me.
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 3 tsp dry sherry
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
- 3 tsp soy sauce
- 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp hoisin sauce
- 12 oz pork tenderloin chops or stirfry strips (I went with the strips)
- 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup potato flakes
- Combine the first 8 ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
- Combine the panko and potato flakes in a plastic bag.
- Add the chops or pork strips to the bag and shake to coat.
- Arrange the coated pork on a baking sheet and bake at 450F for 20-30 minutes.
- Serve with a drizzle of the sauce you made.
