In my house growing up, Kikkoman was a name we all knew. My step father was very particular when it came to certain brands and Kikkoman for our soy sauce was the only brand ever bought. So of course when I was living on my own, it was all I used. Even if another brand was on sale, I would stick with Kikkoman because I knew I would never be disappointed with the flavor or quality.
My most favorite Kikkoman product besides soy sauce is the Panko bread crumbs and the Katsu sauce..yumm! I am so excited to see more products from Kikkoman such as the Quick Marinades and the Pearl Soy Milks.
I keep many Kikkoman products stocked in my house. Right now I have their Katsu sauce, Teriyaki sauce, Panko, Soy Sauce, Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce, and Rice Vinegar either in my fridge or stocked in my pantry. And thanks to Kikkoman they sent me a wonderful box full of product goodies to try to include the new Kara-Age Soy-Ginger coating mix which I can not wait to try!!
One recipe I make often is either chicken katsu or tonkatsu (pork). It is so easy you really do not need a recipe, all you need is Kikkoman Panko bread crumbs, meat and seasoning. So simple and so delicious my girls always ask for seconds.
6 Boneless Pork Chops, thin sliced
1 cup Kikkoman Panko
1 cup Flour
1 Egg, beaten
Veggie Oil (enough oil to pan fry but not "deep fry")
Step 1: In a large fry or saute pan heat oil on med high.
Step 2: Grab 3 separate plates or bowls. Plate #1 will have the flour, plate #2 the egg and #3 Kikkoman Panko. In bowl #3 I like to add spices to the Panko but it is not necessary. However I like to add the above listed spices. Because Kikkoman Panko is so light you can add any spices for a new delicious flavor.
Step3: Take a pork cutlet and dredge in the flour. Next dip and cover the floured pork in the egg wash. Finally dredge again into the seasoned Panko and straight into the hot oil.
Pan fry on med heat for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Flip cutlet and cook until second side is golden brown. Remove to a plate covered with a paper towel. Rest for a minute and serve hot.
