Japanese-Style Crisp Breaded Pork Cutlets (Tonkatsu)
Why This Recipe Works
For our breaded pork cutlet recipe, we were looking for well-seasoned pork cutlets with a crisp, golden, substantial breading. Pounding the pork tenderloin to a ½-inch thickness offered some chew and a cushion against overcooking. A coating of fresh white bread crumbs gave our pork cutlet recipe a light, flavorful crust. For a juicy interior, we cooked the cutlets quickly in plenty of shimmering hot oil.
