Pork Tonkatsu

In my previous post, I mentioned that I try recreating the food that I usually order in a restaurant so aside from Beef Gyudon, I am also missing Tonkatsu. If we are craving tonkatsu, Yabu is our go-to restaurant if ever we are in Alabang Town Center or Southmall. I can’t remember the last time we ate there, sobrang namimiss ko ang unlimited soup, cabbage, and fruits.  

Anyway, I found this McCormick Tonkatsu Agemono Fry Set P63.75 during my last grocery at Landers. Since I don’t know the taste yet, I only bought one pack, the package includes 85g of Tonkatsu Coating Mix and 25g of Tonkatsu Sauce. I just followed the directions at the back of the packaging.

1/2 kg pork steak 
1 piece egg, beaten with 1 tbsp of water 
Oil for deep-frying, preheat over medium heat 

1. Dip each piece of pork steak in egg wash. 
2. Coat in Tonkatsu Coating Mix. 
3. Deep-fry until golden brown and cooked through. 
4. Serve immediately with Tonkatsu Sauce. 

The coating mix is only good for 5 pieces of small porkchop, bitin na sa pang-anim. I noticed na mabilis siya maluto so yung first porkchop ko, almost burned pagkalagay ko. Waah! The taste is good naman pero malayo sa lasa ng Yabu (hindi siya crunchy and juicy). Hehehe! Next time, I will try the ready-to-cook Tonkatsu of Landers, or I will do it from scratch. I cooked this last March so now, I am craving tonkatsu na naman.

Update: March 2022

I mentioned before that I will try the Ready-To-Cook Pork Tonkatsu at Landers so when I went back last December, I bought a pack of this and immediately fried the pork for our dinner. The pieces of pork are thin so it is so easy to fry. The taste is a little bit bland so you can prepare a dipping sauce, my husband just uses ketchup because my son and I are okay with plain tonkatsu. 

I prefer this Ready-To-Cook Pork Tonkatsu kasi hindi na ko magpound pa ng porkchop and no need to buy tonkatsu mix or bread crumbs. This is now part of my grocery list every time na magLanders ako kasi ito rin niluluto ko pag-uwi. hehehe!
