This can also be made with turkey or chicken and is a Japanese dish. If you can't find mirin or panko, you can substitute sherry and breadcrumbs, but the flavor will be different

just want to thank u, chia, 4 a winner recipe! my bf just love the crispy crust, the result of double crusting. he finished the whole bowl of katsudon, made with 2 chicken breasts. i smashed the breasts a little between clingwrap, with a frying pan. and the meat turned out very tender. thanks again!

Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare rice, set aside to keep warm.
- Simmer onions, broth, mirin, soy, and seasonings in a large pan over low heat for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile beat the eggs in a large bowl.
- Mix flour, salt and pepper in a plate and pour panko in another plate.
- Dredge pork in flour, dip into eggs, dip into panko--- then dip into eggs again and back into panko. Double dipping insures a nice crust.
