Wasabi and Panko-Crusted Pork with Gingered Soy Sauce

Panko are coarse white breadcrumbs used in this quick and easy interpretation of the Japanese dish tonkatsu. Look for panko and wasabi paste in the ethnic-foods section of the supermarket. Substitute chicken broth if you don’t have sake or sherry on hand. Serve with rice and steamed snow peas and carrots for a complete meal. Ingredients 2/3 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) 1 large egg white, lightly beaten 4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick) 1 teaspoon peanut oil Cooking spray 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World) 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth 2 tablespoons sake or dry sherry 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 2 teaspoons sugar 1 teaspoon wasabi paste 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions Place panko in a shallow dish. Place egg white in another shallow dish. Dip pork in egg white; dredge in panko. Heat peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat; add pork. Cook for 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove pork from pan; sprinkle with salt. Reduce heat to medium. Add ginger to pan; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
