Ready Time

40 mins


6 servings


  • 8 (4 ounce) boneless pork chops
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 cups oil for frying, or as needed
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1½ cups panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)


Begin by preparing your pork cutlets. Place each chop between two layers of durable plastic wrap or within freezer bags.

Using a meat mallet or the flat side of a kitchen utensil, gently pound the meat until it achieves a uniform thickness of approximately 1/4 inch.

Season the cutlets generously with salt and black pepper to enhance their flavor. Next, set up three separate work areas for the coating process.

In one bowl, pour the all-purpose flour.

In the second, whisk the eggs until smooth. Finally, place the panko breadcrumbs into the third bowl.

Take each cutlet and thoroughly coat it in the flour.

Ensure that the meat is completely covered before moving on to the egg mixture. Dip the floured cutlet into the beaten eggs, ensuring that it is well coated.

Finally, transfer the cutlet to the breadcrumbs and press firmly to adhere them to the meat.

Gently tap off any excess crumbs. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Once the oil reaches 375 degrees Fahrenheit, carefully place the breaded cutlets into the hot oil.

Fry for approximately 4 minutes on each side, or until the cutlets are golden brown and cooked through. Upon completion, remove the pork cutlets from the oil and drain them on paper towels to remove any excess oil.

Serve the crispy Japanese pork cutlets while hot, accompanied by your favorite dipping sauce or sides.
