    Cheese Tonkatsu with Umeboshi

    *This program was first broadcast on Mar. 30, 2018

    Tonkatsu pork cutlets are a standard in modern Japanese teishoku meal sets. In this episode, we'll be making tonkatsu stuffed with cheese as our main dish. We'll also be making two side dishes: for our first, we'll be making clam and daikon radish soup using fresh asari clams, which come into season in spring. We'll also be making a refreshing nori seaweed salad with a dressing made using sesame oil and sushi vinegar, which goes perfectly with fried dishes. We hope you'll enjoy Rika's cheese tonkatsu teishoku meal set as much as we do!
