Donkatsu (pork cutlets)

I love donkatsu as it brings back so many childhood memories and also memories from my more recent past of living in Korea. It’s the equivalent of breaded pork cutlets or schnitzels and can be made with pork or chicken. You simply dredge the pork cutlet in flour, wash it in eggs, dip it in breadcrumbs (Panko is great) and fry it in olive oil on a frying pan over medium heat. I love the donkatsu sauce (found at your nearest Asian market) and I usually add my homemade slaw as a side. For the slaw dressing I had initially bought coleslaw dressing in a bottle but didn’t like the tangy flavor so whipped up my own simple dressing with 2 parts mayo, a teaspoon of ketchup, and 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard. Enjoy!
