Tonkatsu Pork with Asian Slaw

Tonkatsu is one of the most beloved “western style” Japanese foods.It is a pork steak breaded with flour, egg, and Panko (bread crumbs), then deep fried.  It’s not the healthiest food, but rather comfort food. It elevates plain pork chops from dry, lean cuts of meat to a juicy, crispy dinner you never forget. 
Tonkatsu sauce is a thick and fruity brown sauce used in Japan as a topping for katsu dishes like tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet), chicken katsu, and korokke (potato croquette); as a dipping sauce for kushikatsu (deep fried skewered foods); or as an ingredient to make yakisoba (fried noodles). Based on Western Worcestershire sauce, tonkatsu sauce is also called “usuta sauce” when it has a thin, more liquid texture, or “chuno” sauce when it has a medium-thick texture.
