Tonkatsu, Japanese Pork Cutlet

ad

You can buy breadcrumbs in Finland, but they are finer than Japanese breadcrumbs. When used as batter for frying, they become quite crunchy. The texture is different from that of Japanese breadcrumbs, and it’s delicious. If I want all of a sudden to fry something, it happens that I don’t have breadcrumbs at home, and if it feels like too much trouble to go out to the small market nearby and buy them. I use cornflakes instead as my friend post on twitter. Thank you Yoshimi!

Authentic pork cutlet sauce I am accustomed to is a luxury item in Finland. I did some research to see if I could make it myself. Then I gave up to make it from the beginning because of the amount of ingredients used. So I made Japanese Chuno Sauce with Heinz Worcestershire Sauce.
