Those good companions, pork and cabbage, combine once more.

This is a Japanese style breaded and deep fried pork dish.
Like rookworst and endive in Holland or our own bacon and cabbage the essence of this meal is pork and cabbage.

For the chops -
Trim the fat off the pork chops if you prefer not to eat the fat, I just take off the rind.
Score small cuts all around the edge of the pork chops
Coat the pork chops in some seasoned flour (shaking off any excess flour)

Dip the pork chops in the beaten egg, mustard powder and herb mix..
Finally coat in the bread crumbs (rub the crumbs gently onto the pork chops).

Cook in a heavy based saucepan or cast iron frying pan - the oil should come half way up the chops.
Oil needs to be very hot - sizzling, about 140 C.
Turn and cook until golden brown all over

If serving with chopsticks dond forget to slice up the pork - and it makes for nicer presentation I feel.

Tonkatsu sauce
1 tsp. dry mustard powder
50ml cup ketchup
25ml Worcestershire
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp Yorkshire relish (optional)

Whisk together mustard and 2 tsp. water in a bowl until smooth. Add ketchup, Worcestershire, and soy sauce, and whisk until smooth.

Sweet and sour cucumber and wakame pickles (kyuuri to wakame no amasuzuke) as a side dish - and the meal is served with Sushi rice and home grown greyhound cabbage.

For more details on the pickles etc just see the blog

We don't eat meat, so I'm going to try this using fish instead of pork.
