A note about serious food allergies

Every food culture on Earth has a breaded and fried protein, and Japan is a food culture on Earth. (One of the best food cultures on Earth, in our humble opinion.) Tonkatsu is just that: breaded and fried pork that's served with rice. This meal has delightfully crispy pork, with a mushroom rice full of flavor… with a slight hint of heat of Sriracha at the end. Like we said, one of the best food cultures on Earth.

Before You Cook

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 1, 3, and 4, frying until chicken is golden-brown and reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes, flipping every 4-5 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thinly slice mushrooms.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Rice

    Place a small pot over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add mushrooms, white portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt to hot pot. Stir occasionally until tender and browned, 4-5 minutes.

    Add rice, 11/4 cups water, 1/4 tsp. salt, and miso concentrate. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Cover, and cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes.

    Remove from burner and set aside covered.

    While rice cooks, prepare and cook pork.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Pork Chops

    Combine mayonnaise and 2 tsp. water in a mixing bowl. Place panko on a plate.

    Cover pork with plastic wrap and pound with a heavy object to an even 1/4" thickness.

    Remove plastic wrap. Transfer pork chops to a plate and spread mayonnaise-water mixture on chops, coating completely. Then transfer to plate with panko, flipping and dredging until coated, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. 4

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Let oil heat, 5 minutes.

    After 5 minutes, test oil temperature by adding a pinch of panko to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

    Lay pork away from you in hot oil and flip every 4-5 minutes until golden brown and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

    Transfer pork to towel-lined plate. Rest, 3 minutes.

  5. 5

    Warm Sauce and Finish Dish

    In a microwave-safe bowl, combine tonkatsu sauce and 1 Tbsp. water. Microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

    Transfer rested pork to a clean cutting board. Slice into 3/4" strips.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pork with tonkatsu sauce, green portions of green onions, and Sriracha (to taste). Bon appétit!
