Another one developed in Recipezaar Chat. These, for me, are a cook ahead and reheat in the microwave. Another cooking for 1 thing. They are dense but stay quite moist for the reheating. I had them as burgers (no cheese this time) But they would go well with a little gravy with smashed potatoes for a main dish.
Exactly what the name says, a faux cutlet thing. I did these in the oven but they might well have been better pan fried. Sesame and ginger are the primary non chicken flavors. I planned to use Tahini in this but mine was too long on the shelf so I had to mortar my own.
This is my absolute favorite Japanese food. (What's not to like? It's fried!) I was introduced to this by Japanese exchange students I was hosting. The tonkatsu sauce is purchased at most grocery stores in the Asian foods section. Serve on a bed of shredded cabbage, for presentation. Serve with TONKATSU Sauce (the database won't let me add this as an ingredient).
