I made tonkatsu the other day and realized I had no rice! Luckily, I remembered eating Katsu-sando (tonkatsu sandwich) in Japan. Katsu-sando is quick and easy to make and great for bentos! I usually prepare lots of tonkatsu and freeze them until I need to use them (I let them thaw a bit before frying). Also, I like to add toasted sesame seeds (ground) to the tonkatsu sauce before using for more flavor.

This recipe makes 1 sandwich
