  • 4 pieces pork loin slices
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup Napa cabbage shredded
  • 2 cups cooking oil


  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1 teaspoon ginger minced and pounded
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced and pounded
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin


  • Pound the meat to flatten a little then rub salt and ground pepper all over. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes to absorb the flavor.
  • Dredge the loin chops in flour then dip in the beaten egg mixture.
  • Place the chops in a container with bread crumbs and shake until the sides of the loin chops are coated.
  • Heat a skillet or frying pan then pour-in cooking oil.
  • Deep fry for 5 to 7 minutes. Do not cook in high heat as it will burn the bread crumbs before the meat is done.
  • Turn-off heat and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Make the sauce by heating a saucepan and combining all the sauce ingredients. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the texture of the sauce thickens.
  • Top the fried loin chops with sauce and serve with shredded cabbage.
  • Serve. Share and enjoy!
