How to make a katsu sando in less than 15 min

We propose you to travel to Japan with the dish “street food” par excellence, the katsu sando. This very popular dish is the equivalent of our so expensive ham-butter.

Japanese street food

Granted, Japanese is not the easiest language to learn. Simply put, “tone” means pork, and “katsu” means to chop. When we talk about Tonkatsu, it is, therefore, a pork chop, most often accompanied by its panko breadcrumbs (Japanese breadcrumbs). And the katsu sando in all this?

It is a breaded pork sandwich, served with a sweet-sour sauce that wakes up the palate and cabbage in strips to bring freshness. Easy to make, this sandwich will make you travel cheaply in no time.

For lovers of Japanese cuisine, katsu sando is the basis of street food. Get Japanese crumb bread (softer than its French cousin), a beautiful pork rib, panko breadcrumbs, and cabbage. For the sauce, you will need ketchup, oyster sauce, and Worcestershire sauce that will give a slightly sweet-sour taste to your sandwich. Simply pass the boneless pork rib in the breadcrumbs and then in a 180° frying bath for 10 minutes. You will get a crispy and melting tonkatsu.

Mix the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and oyster sauce in a saucepan and heat for 2 minutes. Grate the cabbage with a mandolin or finely cut it with a knife and then toast your slices of bread crumb 2 minutes to the toaster. Then proceed to the sandwich assembly by placing sauce on the crumb bread, a little cabbage, and breaded pork rib. Close the sandwich and enjoy with your hands to stick to the street sandwich tradition.
