5. Lightly dredge each piece of pork in the flour, shaking off the excess. Then dip them into egg, and finally into the panko. Set the pork on the baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

6. Set the oven at 300 degrees. Have on hand another rimmed baking sheet.

7. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until it begins to shimmer. Fry the first cutlet for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until crisp and golden brown. Transfer to the baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Fry the remaining cutlets in the same way. Serve with lemon. Adapted from Domku Bar & Cafe
