Tonkatsu Kare Raisu
We didn't have a few ingredients to make kare raisu aka Japanese curry with rice. We didn't have any Japanese curry cubes, nor did we have enough of the right ingredients to make the Japanese curry roux. But we've made it before (here and here).
Andrew ended up grabbing some of the ingredients the next day and then made the curry. Then Andrew used the rest of the pork chops to make pork cutlets (tonkatsu) with panko bread crumbs.
Once I got home from work, he was just frying the last two breaded cutlets. The rice and curry was ready too. I have to admit, it was quite an impressive effort by our youngest brother.
He got high marks. The tonkatsu wasn't over-fried and was still juicy.
Despite not being that hungry, we both devoured a bowl of tonkatsu kare raisu. And because we didn't eat very much that day, we had plenty of leftovers for the next day. Win!
