Tired of slaving over the stove after a long day at work? Our friends Simran and Stacie at A Little Yumminess shared this fab, kid-friendly recipe for Tonkatsu and Green Beans with us, and we knew we had to pass it on to you. Knock off some of the prep beforehand – then put it all together come dinnertime. Keep the kiddies busy with the little stuff, like washing green beans, pounding pork cutlets, or stirring the sauce; family dinners taste ten times yummier when everyone lends a hand.
