Pork Cutlet Start-Up

Pork Cutlet Start-Up

The key to a successful breading—whether you’re making pork cutlets, chicken breasts or schnitzel—is ensuring that the meat is as dry as possible before coating it. You can achieve this by pounding the pork with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin until it’s a uniform thickness, then by dredging it in flour and seasoning before a light panko breadcrumb coating. The final step, frying, is easy to do in a large skillet and produces a crispy, golden-brown piece of meat with just enough crunch for good texture and a mouthfeel that’s satisfying to bite into.

Pork cutlets (also known as katsu or katayaki) are a popular dish in Japanese restaurants and can be made at home, with a little preparation and patience. They are thin, crispy, and filling, with a deep flavor that combines the richness of the meat and the tanginess of the sauce and vegetables. They are also relatively easy to prepare, taking just four minutes to cook once they’ve been marinated and beaten flat with a meat mallet.

Unlike some other meats, pork is relatively easy to find boneless and skinless as cutlets or chops that are already thin and ready to cook. That’s a huge advantage over other cuts of meat that require pounding and a long prep time before they’re ready to be cooked.돈까스창업 In addition to saving time, these thin pieces of pork are also very affordable and readily available at many supermarkets.

If you want to make a traditional Tonkatsu, you’ll need some pork cutlets and a bottle of Tonkatsu sauce, which can be purchased at many grocery stores. You’ll also need a serving of cooked cabbage and some rice to accompany your meal. A bowl of miso soup is optional, but is a nice complement to the meal.

A few tweaks to the recipe can make this version of a classic dish even better. By adding a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and some chopped thyme to the breadcrumb mix, this dish is elevated from everyday fare to something special. The thyme and Parmesan both add a fresh, herbaceous flavor that balances the sweetness of the tonkatsu sauce perfectly.배달창업

The best part of this recipe is that it’s just as simple to make as it is tasty. Once you’ve gotten the hang of this technique, you can easily add any combination of herbs or spices to the breadcrumbs that will take your favorite dishes from ordinary to extraordinary.

Getting breading to stay on pork isn’t really an art form, but there are some key tips to remember. Make sure that the pork is as dry as possible before coating it. This will help the egg and breadcrumbs adhere to the pork rather than falling off as it cooks. Also, work with one cutlet at a time. Remove the pork from the fridge and pat it dry with kitchen paper before dusting it lightly with flour, then dipping into the whisked egg and finally pressing into the breadcrumbs firmly (you can even bury them like you’re burying a body). The more firmly they are pressed into the crumbs, the more dense and substantial the coating will be.
