    Charmie777's Note:

    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).

      Besides some sushi, this is my absolute favorite Japanese dish! I always make it this way but have heard from one Japanese person to add a little Saki to the egg mixture. Tastes great either way and the Tonkatsu sauce is a definite must, easy to find near the soy sauce at the grocery store and delicious!!! My whole family LOVES this dish!!
