Tonkatsu From Western food to Japanese meat dish

What is Tonkatsu

Delicious Tonkatsu!

Tonkatsu, deep-fried deep pork cutlet, is one of popular Japanese meat dishes. It was originally considered a type of yoshoku—Japanese versions of European cuisine invented in the late 19th and early 20th centuries—and was called katsuretsu (cutlet) or simply katsu. There are variations of meat used; pork loin cutlet (called Roast-katsu), pork tender loin cutlet (called Hi-re-katsu).
Traditionally, Tonkatsu is only cooked in household for only special occasions.
Also, “Katsu” in Japanese means wining, so when there is an examination or a competition, Japanese will eat Tonkatsu.
