For the Sauce

  • ½ cup ketchup

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon dry sherry (optional)

  • 1 dash hot-pepper sauce (optional)

For the Cutlets

  • 1 large egg

  • cup plain dried breadcrumbs

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 pound boneless pork loin, sliced into 4 cutlets (each about ½ inch thick)

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Make the sauce: In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients; set aside to let the flavors develop.

  2. Make cutlets: In a small, shallow bowl, whisk together egg and 2 tablespoons water. Place breadcrumbs on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Coat each slice of pork with flour, then dip in egg mixture; dredge in breadcrumbs, coating completely.

  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Serve with sauce.
