My Youngest is enamored with all things Japanese, and asked for curry. Instead of making my typical curry with veggies and meat, I decided to make an all veggie curry with tonkatsu (panko-breaded pan-fried pork chops).
Tonkatsu couldn't be easier - salt and pepper the pork, coat in panko crumbs, and pan-fry.
Serve with white rice and boxed curry, and you've got a quick dinner that even your picky teenager will love.
Side note: I keep thinking of making curry from scratch, but the Japanese lady I work with says "Why? Too hard. Use box." And since I think she's secretly a ninja, I'm following her advice.
