Tonkatsu

This is just a quick meal of reheated tonkatsu (Japanese deep-fried thinly-sliced, panko breaded pork), rice with furikake, and stir-fried Napa cabbage.

Tonkatsu is fairly labor-intensive to make but it freezes well. I heat it on a lightly greased sheet pan for 12 minutes at 350°F.

To make the cabbage: Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat. Add a little olive oil and the white part of the cabbage and cook until soft. Add the green part of the cabbage and a clove of garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
