    Ok, first off dump the salt with the pork.It's salty enough on it's own.Second the sauce ,is pretty bad,use Kikkoman katsu or use teriyaki .The result will be as close to japanese as you can get.We served it with white rice and broc as we didn't have cabbage on hand.It was awesome.Remember just use the panko ,flour and egg,no other seasoning needed.The sauce is the accent.Otherwise is too salty.
