Japanese Fried Pork Fillets.


  • Pork Fillet (sliced)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 cups Japanese Panko Crumbs
  • Vegetable Oil


  1. Cut the pork fillet it even-sized slices.
  2. Set out three bowls, one for flour, one for egg, and one for the Panko crumbs. Make sure you whisk your eggs well.
  3. Coat each fillet first in flour, then egg, the crumbs.
  4. Heat oil in a deep pan or deep skillet. Do not allow heat to become too high or you will burn the outside before the inside is done.
  5. Toss a little flour in the pan to see if the oil is warm enough and place fillets in the oil.
  6. Once crispy and golden brown, flip fillet onto the other side.
  7. Once that side is crispy and golden brown, place fillet on a towel lined plate and use a thermometer to ensure each fillet is fully cooked (approximately 170-177°).
  8. Serve the pork fillets with rice, vegetables, and enjoy!
