It seems like you're referring to "Donkatsu," which is a popular dish in Korean cuisine. Donkatsu (also spelled "Tonkatsu" in Japanese) is a breaded and deep-fried pork cutlet.

It originated in Japan and was adapted into Korean cuisine, where it is often served with a variety of accompaniments.


Pork Cutlet: The main ingredient, typically a pork loin or pork tenderloin, pounded to tenderize, seasoned, then coated in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs (panko).

Bread Crumbs (Panko): Japanese-style bread crumbs that give the cutlet a light and crispy texture.


Frying: The breaded cutlet is deep-fried until golden brown and crispy.

1. Sauce: Donkatsu is usually served with a thick, sweet, and tangy sauce known as katsu sauce, which is similar to Worcestershire sauce but thicker and sweeter.

1. Sides: Common sides include shredded cabbage, rice, and pickled vegetables. In Korea, it may also be served with a side of kimchi or other banchan (Korean side dishes).

Cheese Donkatsu: Filled with cheese before being breaded and fried. Curry Donkatsu: Served with Japanese-style curry. Donkatsu Sandwich: Served as a sandwich, often with a cabbage slaw.

Donkatsu is a beloved comfort food in both Korea and Japan, often found in casual eateries, school cafeterias, and even high-end restaurants. It represents a fusion of Western and Asian culinary traditions, highlighting the cross-cultural influences in East Asian cuisine.
