Pork Tonkatsu with Cabbage

Pork Tonkatsu is a Japanese dish. It is traditionally served with shredded cabbage, pickled vegetables, rice and miso soup as a set. I recently visited Japan for the first time in ten years and fell in love with Tonkatsu again. I never fully appreciated cabbage until I experienced it in Japan. It is a side for many dishes there and demonstrates that something as simple as shredded cabbage with a sauce can be a delicious accompaniment. It can be a welcome alternative to green salad.
The Tonkatsu set was also very popular with our children in our travels, mostly because of the deep fried crunchy meat, and the sticky rice. It is a good meal to practise using chopsticks for that reason. Whilst Tonkatsu usually uses pork fillets, it is also just as nice with chicken.
