Pork Steak (Tonteki)



3 medium-thick cut pork chops
3 tablespoons flour
¾ small white onion, minced
3 tablespoons tonkatsu sauce
1 tablespoon mirin
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2-3 tablespoons water
Cooking oil
Salt and pepper


1.       Make the sauce: combine mirin, soy sauce, tonkatsu sauce and water in a glass. Mix well.

2.       Coat the pork chops: Add the flour to a shallow plate and coat each side of the pork chops with flour.

3.       Heat a large frying pan on medium-high, and add the oil. Once the oil has heated, add the pork chops.

4.       Flip the pork chops once one side has begun to brown golden. Salt and pepper the upward facing browned side.

5.       When the other side of the pork chop appears that it has begun to nicely brown, reduce the heat and add the sauce and minced onion.

6.       Flip the pork chops a few times in the sauce mixture so that the pork chops begin to caramelize and darken. Be careful not to let the sauce thicken too much.

7.       Plate immediately and top with sauce from the pan.

*Note: Coating the pork chops in flour allow the sauce to catch hold onto the meat.
