I was very excited about this but, it was so bland. Needed garlic, onions or something more. Made the gravy in the pan I had cooked the cutlets in to get some of the meat flavor but the gravy was still really flavorless. Probably will be better with some additions.

This was really tender! I messed up the gravy but it was still really good. I used plain bread crumbs as well. My kids actually thought it was chicken fried steak:) and they don't like pork. I did add a little more pepper and salt to the gravy. Very good thank you for posting.

The cutlets came out nice and tender. I did not have the Japanese-style crumbs, so used plain. We did like the breaded cutlets. I had a box of white gravy that I used, so I did not try your gravy recipe this time. Thank you for sharing
