Last night I made a great tonkatsu, at least *I* thought it was for my first attempt.
Kroger has some great lean pork piece that were the perfect thickness and size. I breaded them with the usual flour/egg/panko dredge and fried them in my sweet new fryolator, complete with basket.
They came out surprisingly tender, which I don't usually get from Japanese places. Even tasted good warmed up for lunch today.
I'll be trying more soon.
