Katsu Sando

Katsu Sando (カ ツ サ ン ド) is the Japanese sandwich made with pork cutlet (tonkatsu) and soft white bread. It is a preparation that is part of the yoshoku cuisine.

Mix and set aside. - In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and the mustard. Keep it aside. - Make small diagonal cuts on the meat on both sides (so that it cooks better).
