"Menchi Katsu" is minced cutlet. It is kind of croquette, made from the mixture of ground meat (beef or pork, or both) and minced cabbage, breaded and deep-fried. Certainly my darling's favorite food, but it is high in calories!!! Therefore, I came up with this idea. Instead of deep frying it, I stuffed the meat in aburaage (deep-fried tofu pouch) and pan-fried it until crisp! Yummy indeed!!! My darling loves it :D
Now over 270 people have tried this recipe and said it was good!!! You can find their photos and comments down in the linked page :) http://cookpad.com/recipe/536489
Difficulty: Easy Time: 15min Number of servings: 2
Ingredients: 200g (7oz.) ground beef and pork mixture 100g (3.5oz.) cabbage 50g (1.7oz.) onion A * 2 tbsp. panko (bread crumbs) * 2 tsp. sesame oil * 2 tsp. soy sauce * salt and cracked black pepper B * 2 tbsp. ketchup * 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 2 aburaage (deep-fried tofu pouch) vegetables of your choice
Directions: 1. Mince cabbage and onion. 2. Mix ground beef and pork mixture, (1.), and (A) in a bowl by hand until the mixture comes together and sticky. 3. Pour boiled water over aburaage to remove the excess oil. Drain and dry with paper towels. Place the aburaage on a cutting board, and trace the aburaage with cooking chopsticks to make it easy to open. Cut a side of aburaage and gently open the pocket. 4. Stuff (2.) in (3.). 5. Heat a frying pan, place (4.), add 40ml of water. Cover the pan and steam it on medium heat until the water is almost gone (4-5min). Then open and cook until the surface is crisp and brown (3-4min). 6. Cut into bite-size pieces, pour (B) mixture over them. Serve with vegetables of your choice.
* It is better served before the aburaage softens. BUT it tastes good, anyways! hehe
