What is katsudon?

When it comes to fast food, donburis (どんぶり) are one of the best options in Japan.

Donburis consist of rice served in a bowl and are extremely popular. And of course, katsudon is one of them.

At home, when we have a craving, this is the donburi we turn to.

It consists of a breaded pork cutlet (known as tonkatsu) that is accompanied by onion cooked in a mild sauce full of umami. Finally, a beaten egg is added and cooked until it’s 80% done. Pure delight!

Katsudon, a donburi for the winners.

Katsudon is said to be a dish for the winners.

That is because, in Japanese, the verb katsu (勝つ), homonym of the dish’s katsu (カツ), means to win.

It is for this reason that, in Japan, the night before an important exam, students usually have katsudon for dinner. That way they will emerge victorious from it.

Now that we have a little one at home, I think this is a tradition we will have to start following.

How To Make A Perfect Katsudon

To get a good katsudon, it is important to make a good tonkatsu.

The meat

Traditionally, katsudon is prepared with tonkatsu, which is nothing more than a pork cutlet dipped in panko batter and deep-fried.

You can use whatever cut you like. That said, in my case, I usually opt for loin head with a thickness of about 1 cm.

The panko

Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs.

They are flakes and have a lighter texture than breadcrumbs.

Moreover, because it is prepared without using the edge of the breadcrumbs, its colour is lighter than that of Western breadcrumbs.

Thanks to this, panko breadcrumbs are less oily and more crunchy than western breadcrumbs.

Best of all, if you have sliced bread, you can make it at home in a couple of minutes. Here is the link to the recipe.

The oil

For a delicious tonkatsu, I recommend using an oil with a neutral flavour and a high smoke point. I usually opt for sunflower oil.

It is also important to use plenty of oil. If too little oil is used, the tonkatsu is in contact with the base of the pan. The base of the pan will be at a higher temperature than the oil and this causes the outside of the tonkatsu to cook too quickly and, most likely, you will end up with a raw inside.

To avoid this, just use a pan or wok with plenty of oil. At least 5-6 cm.
