How to Cook It:

  1. Mix the meat, onion, first egg, panko, salt pepper and nutmeg together in a bow. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are thick and stick together well.

  2. Divide into 6-10 pieces depending on how many you would like to make and form them into small flat disk shapes.

  3. Next, chill the patties in the refrigerator for up to 30 minutes.

  4. While it’s chilling, begin to heat up your oil to 170C (350 F). Note: you only need to heat up enough oil to submerge about 1/2 of the katsu so don’t overdo it.

  5. Coat both sides of the patties with flour, dip in the beaten egg, and then roll them in panko before placing them into the oil.

  6. Fry on each side for about 4 minutes and you’re done!

  7. Once they have cooled slightly, top with your preferred topping or sauce and dig in! Even chilled these will still be delicious!

(Note: You are cooking with oil. Be extremely careful and only use what you need! keep an eye on your oil and wash your hands because you are handling raw meat!)

If you did everything right, it should come out looking something like this!
