2 ½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoon Panda Brand Oyster Sauce
1 ⅛ teaspoon sugar

2. Breading Preparation: Slice the meat diagonally by 1/2 inch thick and pound it with a kitchen hammer (this is important for quick and easy frying). Rub it with garlic and season with salt (or salt and pepper). Beat the eggs into a bowl until frothy.
3. Coat the pork loin with flour, shake it a bit to remove excess flour. Then dip it into the egg wash. And toss in a bowl of panko bread crumbs.
4. Deep fry in hot oil for 5-7 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Enjoy with tonkatsu sauce or melted sliced cheddar cheese on top.

Serve hot and enjoy!
Cheesy Tonkatsu: Just melt a Cheddar Cheese slice on top of a fried tonkatsu over low heat. Yummy!
