Crunchyroll FEATURE: Cooking With Anime – Katsu Piroshki from “Yuri!!! on ICE” – http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2016/12/07/feature-cooking-with-anime-katsu-piroshki-from-yuri-on-ice

Ingredients

Makes 6 Pirozhki

 

Pirozhki Yeast Starter:

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp yeast

Pirozhki Dough:

  • Yeast starter
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour

Katsu: 

  • 3 pork chops
  • salt and pepper
  • flour
  • egg
  • panko bread crumbs

Egg filling:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • salt
  • about 1/3 cup frozen peas
Egg Wash:
  • Egg yolk
  • about 1 tbsp water
You will also need 2 cups cooked rice! 
 
To Make:
1. Heat milk from yeast starter ingredients until it’s warm, but not burning hot.
2. Add in yeast starter ingredients to milk and set aside about 10 minutes until foamy.
3. Add first five ingredients for bread dough together. Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time until it is all incorporated.
4. Turn out onto a floury surface, and knead until it is no longer sticky.
5. Set into a bowl, cover with a damp towel, and set in a warm place until it’s tripled in size, about 1 hour.
6. Prepare the Katsu- cut pork chops in half so you have 6 pieces about 1/2 inch thick.
7. Bread the pork chops- flour, then dip in egg, then panko.
8. Fry in oil at 350 F about 5-8 minutes, flipping occasionally, until golden brown.
9. In a clean pan, add eggs, mirin, soy sauce, and salt and whisk together.
10. Turn on heat to medium low and cook eggs, scrambling them as you go.
11. When you have a soft scramble, add in frozen peas. Continue cooking until a hard scramble is achieved.
12. Take out bread dough and turn out onto floured surface. Knead until no longer sticky, and slit into 6 pieces. Form into balls and set aside.
13. On a piece of plastic wrap, spread a thin layer of rice, then a thin layer of egg. Wet fingers with water to prevent rice sticking to them. Place down one katsu, and then more egg and rice.
14. Use the plastic wrap to squeeze the whole thing into a ball. Unwrap and fill in missing spots with rice as necessary.
15. Take a dough ball and stretch it out with your fingers. When it’s bigger than the katsu/rice/egg ball, lay it over the top of the riceball and wrap the dough around, pinching any loose edges closed with your fingers.
16. Set finished pirohzkis on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
17. Brush tops with egg yolk + water to achieve a nice color to the pirozhki.
18. Bake at 400 F for about 25 minutes until golden brown.
