Step 1

Prepare sauce by whisking together all ingredients and refrigerating.

Between two sheets of waxed paper beat pork cutlets as thin as possible with a meat mallet. Season cutlets with salt and pepper. Beat the egg in a low bowl. Coat the cutlets first in the flour, then the egg, and finally the panko crumbs. Over medium high heat pan fry pork for approx. 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and no longer pink inside.

Serve warm with tonkatsu sauce for dipping.
