How to Poach Eggs in a Strainer


  • 4 pork cutlets (about 1 pound)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 slices of white sandwich bread
  • 1/4 cup tonkatsu sauce
  • Dill pickles, for serving (optional)

How to make this recipe

  1. Season the pork cutlets with salt and pepper. Put the flour, egg and <em>panko</em> into 3 separate shallow bowls. Dust the cutlets with the flour, then dip them into the egg and coat with the <em>panko</em>, pressing lightly to help the crumbs adhere.

  2. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil until shimmering. Fry the cutlets 2 at a time over high heat, turning once, until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

  3. Lightly butter the bread and top with the fried pork cutlets. Spoon the <em>tonkatsu</em> sauce on top of the cutlets and close the sandwiches. Cut into thirds and serve with dill pickles.
