How to

  1. Season the pork ribs with PitmasterX Pork seasoning, ensuring the membrane is removed.
  2. Preheat the barbecue to 120°C or 250°F and add beech wood for smoke flavor.
  3. Smoke the ribs until they reach an internal temperature of 92°C or 198°F. Once done, wrap them in aluminum foil and let them cool.
  4. Prepare the Tonkatsu sauce
  5. Remove the bones from the cooled ribs and cut them into equal pieces.
  6. Set up a breading station with three separate containers for all-purpose flour, beaten eggs and Panko bread crumbs.
  7. Coat the rib pieces in flour, then dip them in beaten eggs and finally coat them in Panko bread crumbs.
  8. Heat oil in a pan to 180°C or 356°F. Fry the Tonkatsu until golden brown, then place them on a dripping tray to drain excess oil.

  10. In a separate pan, melt a tablespoon of (chicken) fat. Add 4 beaten eggs and stir with chopsticks in a rotating motion until cooked.
