It should come as no secret by now that I'm a huge fan of the Japanese food. And the Chinese food. Well, Asian food. Well ok, me and food normally get along real well together.
In any event, often I experiment with cooking things that I know I like at the restaurant, and see if I can get as close to, or better than, that level of food quality, using only my own pathetic cooking knowledge. And perhaps a webpage or two or ten.
In the latest of this series, as of now, is the Tonkatsu Adventure! In which, naturally, I attempt to construct Tonkatsu in my own kitchen. I've cheated a bit here and been a sideline participant in the cooking of this at another time in the past. But the method here is different, in that I used authentic ingredients, and not contrived ones.
And so, let this short, but perhaps enlightning, adventure get underway!
Oh yeah, Tonkatsu is a breaded deep fried pork dish, served with an awesome sauce. It's probably important to know that, if you don't already.
