Haiku Poem – トンカツ作り

frying oil sprays
heat sears flesh brown
pork ends crispy

(Ben version)
わく あぶら とんかつ あげて くりすぴー

(Michiko version)
さくさく の とんかつ あがる ころも きて

I decided to try making tonkatsu at home. First, I found a recipe in a book. Then, I went and purchased all the ingredients. I bought pork loins, avocado oil, eggs, Hawaiian bread rolls, and flour. Next, I cut the pork into thin slices. After that, I shredded the rolls into breadcrumbs. I then separated the flour, breadcrumbs, and eggs in to three different bowls. At this point, the eggs had to be beaten. In addition, I put the oil in a pan and pre-heated it to 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Each slice of pork was then individually dipped in the three bowls. Finally, I put each piece of pork in the oil and fried each one until both sides turned brown. My tonkatsu tasted good even though it did not look as good as tonkatsu from a restaurant.
