Breaded Pork Cutlet with Pomegranate Molasses Tonkatsu Sauce. Make tonkatsu sauce ahead of time. Keep pork chops in 180 oven until ready to serve. Chops won't be oily if cooked at proper temperature.

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 4 piece(s) boneless pork chops
  • 1 egg beaten
  • panko bread crumbs
  • 2 cup(s) cabbage finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh pomengranate arils
  • pomengranate tonkatsu sauce
  • 1 cup(s) japanese rice steamed
  • lemon wedges


Pound 1-in pork chop until it's about 1/3-in thick. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Repeat process with the remaining chops.

Heat 2-in of canola oil in a deep-fryer, stockpot or large wok until oil reaches 375 F.

Lightly dust chops in flour, dip in egg wash and then coat each with panko crumbs.

Fry chops two at a time for about 3 minutes. Turn and fry until a deep golden brown and cooked through (3 min). Place on a wire rack to drain and cook remaining chops.

Slice cutlets across their width into 1/2-in strips. Serve with a mound of shredded cabbage, sprinkled with pomengranate arils.
