Donkatsu (Korean Breaded Pork Cutlet)
We have been doing a lot of frying of late, so did an original Japanese dish named donkatsu (or donkaas in Korean), which is breaded and deep-fried pork cutlets. This is a wildly popular dish in Korea and there are quite a few restaurants devoted to this dish only. Personally, I have had this many times in Korea and they usually serve it the same way--breaded pork cutlet with donkatsu sauce, thinly sliced cabbage with ketchup & mayo dressing, and an ice cream scoop full of rice. If you want to make it yourself at home, you can buy pre-made breaded pork cutlets at most Asian markets and fry them up yourself. I decided to do it from scratch because you can make extra breaded cutlets and keep them in the freezer for later (and it's much cheaper too). The family loved it and we will most likely try the same recipe using fish or chicken later.
