Sesame Crusted Goodness
Sesame Crusted Pork Strips
2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup black sesame seeds (optional. I would add another 1/4 of regular sesame seeds if you don't use black though. You can buy large bottles of sesame seeds at Asian markets if your grocer doesn't have them)
2 tbs kosher salt (1 tbs table salt)
1/2 cup+ vegetable oil
-Combine panko, sesame seeds, spice, salt, and zest in large shallow dish, mix well.
-Heat oil in large pot or sautee pan.
-Press strips of pork into panko mixture to coat well and place in hot oil. This will cook very quickly - no more than a minute per side unless the cutlet is thick. Watch it carefully, it can burn easily. Add more oil if you need to.
-Drain on paper towel and serve with dipping sauce (below)
Splash of sesame oil
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tbs rice wine vinegar
-Combine all ingredients. Adjust to liking.
