Panko Pork Cutlets

With Hoisin Sriracha Sauce, Carrots, and Jasmine Rice

Read more

Breaded pork cutlets are for more than just schnitzel. In Japan, they’re called katsu and are typically served over rice with a special sauce. This Asian variation is the inspiration behind this recipe; thin-cut chops are coated in a layer of panko breadcrumbs, then pan-fried in a shallow layer of oil. They’re plated with ginger rice and roasted carrots before being drizzled in a sweet and spicy hoisin sriracha sauce. With all those flavors going on, it’s clear to see (and taste) that this pork is hardly ordinary.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel ginger, then mince or grate until you have ½ TBSP. Peel carrots, then slice on a deep diagonal into ½-inch-thick spears. Halve lime.


In a small bowl, mix hoisin sauce, ½ tsp sriracha, 1½ tsp sesame oil, a squeeze of lime, and 1 TBSP water (we sent more sriracha and oil). Set aside. Toss carrots with a drizzle of vegetable oil on a baking sheet. Season with plenty of salt and pepper. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes, tossing halfway.


Melt ½ TBSP butter in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add minced ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add ¾ cup water and a pinch of salt (about ¼ tsp). Bring to a boil, then stir in rice and return to a boil. Lower heat, reduce to a gentle simmer, and cover. Cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Keep covered off heat.


Meanwhile, mix together panko, ½ tsp garlic powder, half the sesame seeds, and a large pinch of salt on a plate. Pat pork dry with a paper towel, then season all over with salt and pepper. Brush pork with sour cream, coating evenly. Working one cutlet at a time, dip pork into panko mixture, coating all over and pressing to adhere. Set finished cutlets aside on another plate while you work with the rest.


Heat a ¼-inch layer of vegetable oil in a large, preferably nonstick pan over high heat. Once very hot, add pork and cook until crust is golden brown and meat is cooked through, 2-3 minutes per side. (TIP: Lower heat if crust browns too quickly.) Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and immediately season with salt.


Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Divide rice, carrots, and pork between plates. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds. Drizzle sauce over pork or serve on the side. TIP: Drizzle over the remaining sriracha for extra heat.
