"Yummy Japanese croquettes combine ground beef with mashed potatoes and onions; formed into patties, then coated with panko and deep fried to a golden brown. Absolutely mouth-watering! They make a delicious snack! I prefer to make them in smaller bite-size pieces so it's easier to pick up with fingers. Serve with Tonkatsu sauce available at Japanese stores or major supermarkets."

  1. Add potatoes to a large pot of salted water, and bring to a boil; cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, pour potatoes into a large bowl. Stir in butter, and mash with a fork or potato masher. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions, and cook until soft. Stir in beef and soy sauce. Cook, stirring continuously, until beef is browned and all the liquid is evaporated. Combine beef and onions with potatoes, and stir well.
  3. Heat 1/2 cup oil in a deep skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  4. Shape potato and beef mixture into 10 similar-size balls, and flatten into patties. Dredge patties in flour. Then dip in egg, and coat with panko bread crumbs. Carefully place patties into oil, and fry until golden brown on each side.

Yum! Nice and soft and lighter than meatballs. I'd probably add a bit more soy sauce or something else for a little more kick next time. Ginger? Red pepper flakes or chili sauce? I'll try! Than...

This is a good basic recipe for croquettes. I grew up eating these as my Japanese mom taught us to use chopsticks before a fork! The only thing I would suggest is to not use flour just drege i...

I loved these. We did use a lot less onion than in the recipe, only about a half of a large onion, but I'm not very fond of a strong onion taste. They didn't taste very Japanese to me, but the...

I make these without soy sauce, but add white pepper and salt to the potato mixture. I, for one, love these with the tonkatsu sauce and fresh cabbage. I used to ask for these for my birthday d...

This is a way better recipe than the one I made before. These actually turned out, my other ones tasted just like potato pancakes, no flavor at all!

Tasty! I had a problem getting them to stay together, but still good!
