Pork Tonkatsu

Pork Tonkatsuwith Yuzu Cherry Salsa and Arugula

This is no exaggeration: We were freakishly excited when Chef Elana brought back this past hit. Inspired by Japanese tonkatsu, or "pork cutlet", we're coating pork chops with panko and a hint of dry mustard, then shallow-frying until crispy. For a tart, sweet, and spicy pairing, it's topped with a yuzu cherry salsa studded with jalapeños. Yuzu, an aromatic Asian citrus that tastes like a refreshing cross between a lemon, grapefruit, and mandarin, perfectly complements the super-savory pork. File this under crowdpleasers.
