Recipe by Stewie
READY IN: 40mins




  • Heat vegetable oil 1-inch deep in frying pan or wok to 340F or until a few breadcrumbs dropped into the middle of the oil surface immediately.
  • Trim off fat from the pork and pound it to make it thin.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Dust first with flour, then dip into the beaten egg, then the panko crumbs.
  • Fry in the oil until light brown--about 4 minutes/side.
  • Drain on paper towels and then cut into 1" strips.
  • Mix the broth ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Then heat 1/4 of the broth in a separate skillet, bringing it just to a boil.
  • Add the slices of 1 pork cutlet and cook one minute.
  • When the broth has fully coated the cutlet, pour one portion of the beaten eggs into the skillet and stir.
  • Add 2 Tbsp. green peas and cook 30 seconds more.
  • Place one serving of rice into a deep bowl, then remove the cutlet and egg mixture from the skillet and place over the rice.
  • Repeat this for the remaining servings.
