Tonkatsu is a Japanese dish that’s very similar to German schnitzel. To make tonkatsu, you first bread, then fry a pork cutlet. It’s traditionally served with freshly chopped cabbage and a sweet sauce for a fresh balance to the dish. Our Keto friendly version of the dish provides you with the same crispy pork, but instead of using traditional bread crumbs, we use almond flour! This recipe is a great way to satisfy your craving for crispy, delicious fried foods without compromising your diet.

Yield

Serves 4
  • 4 LGCM Boneless Pork Chops ( Order 1/2" NY cut chops)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 cup Almond Flour ( more, if needed)
  • 1 Egg ( 1 very large, or 2 medium - beaten)
  • 1/4 cup Sesame Seeds ( white)
  • Vegetable Oil ( for frying)
  • 5 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 4 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 clove Garlic ( minced)

Directions

  • 1

    Lay the pork chops on a flat surface and pound them to approximately 1/4″ thickness. Season on both sides to your taste with salt and pepper.

  • 2

    Set out 3 bowls out for coating the pork chops. The almond flour should be in 1 bowl, the egg in another bowl, and the white sesame seeds in another bowl. Dredge each pork chop first in almond flour on both sides, then dip in egg, and, finally, dredge in sesame seeds. Set aside on a tray lined with parchment paper.

  • 3

    Heat 1″ of oil in a large frying pan, and fry the pork chops until the exterior is golden. Do not overcrowd the pan, you may need to do several batches.

  • 4

    While the pork chops are frying, you can make the dipping sauce by mixing together ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and minced garlic. You can omit this sauce, if it does not fit with your diet.

  • 5

    Once the pork chops are done frying, let rest for 3 minutes, then cut into strips and drizzle with dipping sauce. Serve with freshly chopped cabbage and enjoy!
