This recipe for homemade Tonkatsu with Iberian comes to snap the recipes of appetizers special and easy for the holidays. I have to tell you that I have brought it me of one of my favorite Asian. It is of the Chuka Ramen Bar Rodrigo García Fonseca and John Husby.

I met Rodrigo one night in my beloved "Sacha" (my favorite undoubtedly in Madrid for a thousand reasons), one of those that remain engraved because they taste like glory, that make time pass without realizing it and that suddenly, it is time to go almost to breakfast. It's a guy fantastic (the two are, Sacha and Rodrigo) and to tell the truth, we do not stop laugh with thousands of things.

At that time I had already been in his restaurant, in which I drew the eye to this Tonkatsu home with Iberian, since then have become, because we love that kitchen cosmopolitan Japanese come from China with a very successful fusion of flavors and ingredients (fantastic ramen and the dim sum). You have to go!

This home Tonkatsu with Iberian caught my attention. They put it whole and cut it on the plate, but I prepared it for the first time for a dinner with friends and it seemed much more fun to present it already filleted with the sauce rather than cut it after freiría.

In my recipe for homemade Tonkatsu with Iberian, I add a bit of rock & roll to the dam with a touch of chile before passing it by panko that are a few Japanese bread crumbs give extra crunchy fried and is much more fun than a simple traditional breadcrumbs. I hope you enjoy it as much as my guests who did not leave a crumb.
