Wagyu Rib Katsu Sando
The katsu sando is a simple thing, and one we take seriously at Beirne Lane: two slices of cotton-like shokupan (Japanese milk bread), slathered with zingy tonkatsu sauce, bookending a thick cutlet of meat that’s been lightly breaded and fried.
For this “Super Sando” we are upping the game using in house dry-aged wagyu rib fillet with a little raw cabbage salad on the side. There is nothing sweeter than biting into a freshly made Katsu Sando. The all-panko breading makes each square inch of the cutlet super crunchy. The tonkatsu sauce cuts through the richness of the cutlet and lends some depth (and a little moisture so it’s not a sad, dry sandwich). The shokupan protects the roof of your mouth from hot meat and rough breading.
It all adds up to a dish that looks as harmless and dainty as a tea sandwich but delivers all the intense meaty joy of a Double Cheeseburger.
