When I was growing up, my mom usually made chicken katsu instead of tonkatsu. Because of this, I am not used to eating regular tonkatsu (thick pork chop) so I usually cook the thin version at home. By using thin slices of pork rather than thick pork chops, the end result is very crispy and light.
It’s very delicious — guaranteed! If you want to control your appetite it’s definitely dangerous to start eating these. It’s also easy to cook and clean because you only need very small amount of oil to deep-fry. I hope you try and enjoy this homemade tonkatsu!
