Have you ever tried “Tonkatsu”, the classic and all-time favorite of Japanese home cooking?
Tonkatsu is a dish where slices of pork loin or fillet are breaded with panko and then deep-fried.
It is usually served with loads of shredded cabbage and Japanese mustard. “Ton” means pork, and “Katsu” comes from cutlets and the origin is said to be the French “côtelette”. Côtelette is a slice of veal breaded with fine bread crumbs and then sautéed, and the Japanese version arranged this and used pork instead.
Tonkatsu is similar to the Schnitzel from Germany or Poland’s Kotlet schabowy, but the main differences are the kind of pork used and the thickness, the type of bread crumbs, the way the tonkatsu is deep-fried in lots of oil and the original sauce with sweetness and hints of spices.
Actually, there are restaurants that specialize in Tonkatsu since there is so much behind this dish. Since the cooking process is easy, it is frequently made at home but there are also lots of mistakes made such as the batter may turn out too oily, the meat may curl when fried, or the pork gets hard and dry.
At our lesson, we will teach you how to make crispy and juicy Tonkatsu from preparation to how you should fry it, in easy steps!

Dear our wonderful members and guests,It is with deep sadness to announce that we have decided to close JJ Kitchen for the time being.During the past 5 years, we have enjoyed cooking and discussing cultural issues with each and everyone. However, Junko had a stroke in June and is currently in the hospital undergoing physiotherapy. Since we do not know how long this will take, we have come to the conclusion to close our doors. For those of you that still have our vouchers, we will be contacting you separately.For JJ Kitchen members, we will contact you regarding future lessons.We thank you all for the love and support you have shown JJ Kitchen, and we hope that we can cook together again.
