Hello, welcome to my blog! For my first blog entry, I am going to be showing you how to make a simple Tonkatsu (crumbed pork) with ramen. It’s a quick and easy recipe so it’s perfect for when you want a quick meal on a busy day.
Preparation time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 15 Mins
➥2 tablespoons plain flour
➥ 2 egg
➥ 1 pork loin steak
➥ Japanese Panko crumbs
➥ 1 packet of ramen
➥ Vegetable oil
➥ Salt and Pepper
➫ Optional: veggies
In three separate bowls, whisk the egg in one, place the flour and panko crumbs in the two other bowls.
First dip the pork into the flour, ensuring that the meat is fully coated. Then dip it in the egg and lastly, give the pork a thick coating of panko crumbs.
Heat up a medium sized frying pan, pour in a generous amount of vegetable oil then fry the pork on medium heat. You should cook the pork for around 3-5min on both sides until golden brown.
Once cooked, take out the pork and drain it on some kitchen roll if you wish. Slice the pork into even 2cm strips and then drizzle with tonkatsu sauce to serve.
While you leave the pork to cool down, you can now start preparing the ramen. First place the ramen into a saucepan and cover it with boiled water. Leave it to cook for approximately 5 minutes then drain.
Drizzle some oil into a pan and start frying the egg. Add the ramen in and the contents such as the seasoning packet (I like to use ½) and sesame oil. Stir-fry this for an extra 5 minutes then serve.
