Cut pork loin crosswise into halves, and then into halves again so you have four 1/4lb pieces.

Place one piece between plastic wrap or inside a plastic bag.

Pound out until about 1/8" thick with a tenderizer or rolling pin.

Repeat with other 3 pieces.

Pour AP flour onto one of your plates and panko onto the other.

Whisk together eggs in the mixing bowl.

Preheat oil to 350°F/180°C in your stockpot.

Coat pork — one piece at a time — in flour, then egg, then panko.

Then place it directly into the hot oil.

Flip repeatedly until evenly golden-brown.

Remove to a paper towel or drying rack to drain off the oil.

Repeat with other 3 pieces of pork.

Serve with curry and/or rice.
