Food for Thought

I keep seeing tonkatsu on my Instagram feed, so I had to satisfy my craving. It’s not hard to make, so I decided to make it myself. I was able to get all the ingredients at Trader Joe’s (pork, panko, cabbage, etc..) except for Worcestershire sauce which is essential for making the tonkatsu sauce. At Asian grocery stores, you can get premade tonkatsu sauce, but it’s better to mix Worcestershire sauce and ketchup (yes, ketchup again) yourself. It’s much closer to the sauce you’d get at real tonkatsu restaurants.

You only see one serving in this photo but I actually ate three in one sitting. Hopefully, my tonkatsu craving will now calm down.
