My Japanese Recipe

Japanese Dish for Pak n Save

Your task is to create a new product for Pak n Save based upon traditional Japanese food. Have a look online for some ideas and identify a dish that you think would be popular in New Zealand.

How is it made?
  1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the panko and oil in a frying pan and toast over medium heat until golden brown. Transfer panko into a shallow dish and allow to cool.
  3. Get rid of the extra fat and make a couple of slits on the connective tissue between the meat and fat. The reason why you do this is that red meat and fat have different elasticity, and when they are cooked they will shrink and expand at different rates. This will allow Tonkatsu to stay nice and flat and prevent Tonkatsu from curling up.

  5. Sprinkle salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Dredge each pork piece in the flour to coat completely and pat off the excess flour. Then dip into the beaten egg and finally coat with the toasted panko. Press on the panko flakes to make sure they adhere to the pork.
  7. Place the pork on the prepared baking sheet or even better if you have an oven-safe wire rack (as air goes through on the bottom so panko won't get crushed). Bake until the pork is no longer pink inside, about 20 minutes.
  8. Cut Tonkatsu into 1 inch pieces (so you can eat with chopsticks) by pressing the knife directly down instead of moving back and forth. This way the panko will not come off. Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
  9. To make special sesame Tonkatsu sauce, grind black and white sesame seeds in a mortar and add Tonkatsu sauce. Mix all together.
What ingredients would it need?
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil,
  • 1 tbsp of flour
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 egg
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ of a cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • ½ 1b pork loin (½ inch/1.2 cm thickness)
            Sause
  • 1 tbsp of ketchup
  • 2 ½ tsp of Worcestershire sauce (or Usutah So-su)
  • 1 ½ tsp of oyster sauce
  • 1 ⅛ of a tsp of sugar

What is the name of your recipe?
How expensive do you think your recipe would be?
I think that this recipe would be about $28

Why does this recipe fit the brief?
It is not expensive, it is easy to make, it is quick to prepare

What is the background of your recipe?
This is what my recipe would look like when you are finished making it.

  1. Hi Tumanako,

    These look great - perhaps Pak n Save would sell these in the frozen meat aisle. Why do you think that these would be popular with our consumers (customers)?
