  • Whisk egg and soy sauce together in a small bowl.

  • Place flour on a small plate and panko in another. Dredge a pork chop in the flour, pressing it in using your fingertips to cover all crevices along the surface. Turn to evenly coat all sides.

  • Dip the pork into the egg mixture, coating completely. Transfer immediately to the bowl of panko, pressing in to evenly coat. Repeat process with the second pork chop.

  • Heat oil in a wide pan or wok on medium-high heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lower a pork chop into the oil. Fry until bottom side is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn; cook until other side turns golden and pork is slightly pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Pick up the cutlet and hold it on its side for a few seconds to let the oil drip off. Drain on a paper towel. Repeat with the second pork chop.

Cook's Note:

Panko is a Japanese-style large bread crumb that is found in most grocery stores.

i was kind of confused when i finished this recipe. i was expecting a different flavour but when it turned out to be a pork cutlet i was a tad disappointed. Don't get me wrong. These are delicious! I think i over-thought it a bit and was expecting something different. I re-read the title and it was an ah-ha moment because it is just what it says it is. a crispy fried pork cutlet. The addition of soy sauce to the egg mixture is was also a little confusing to me in that it didn't really impart any flavour even though i double the soy sauce. All in all this is a very tasty dish.
