Saw this recipe in the latest Taste magazine by Marion Grasby from Master Chef fame.  I had already planned and organised my shop for the week and just brought all the groceries home, when this caught my eye. I just had to try it.  Luckily I had some pork in the freezer.

The panko crumbs are so crunchy and look amazing.  Absolutely yummy, loved by the whole family. I will be cooking this one often. So easy, cheap and contains ingredients most people have already.

I didn’t have the Japanese rice, so I used Jasmine.
