Korokke Recipe – How to make Japanese croquette



Korokke (Japanese croquette) is one of my comfort food.
It tastes nice even after it cools down, so I suggest you to make extra for your next day Bento.
My favorite is Korokke pan (sandwich with croquette, tonkatsu sauce, and shredded cabbage) for the breakfast :)

Ingredients (16-20 pieces, about 6 servings):
900g potatoes (after peel off)
400g ground meat (beef or pork)
2 onions, chopped finely

Vegetable oil

Tonkatsu sauce
shredded cabbage

  1. Peel off the potatoes, cut into 4-6 pieces. Boil them until they’re cooked, then mush them.



  1. At the same time, sautee the chopped onion with 1 Tbs. of vegetable oil in the another pan. When the onion became soft, add the ground meat then adjust the taste with S&P.
    (It will be mixed with mushed potatoes, so please make sure to add salt enough)


  1. Mix mushed potato and cooked onion and meat well.


  1. Make ball shape with (3), toss the flour, beaten egg, and Panko.
    (same way as making Tonkatsu)


  1. Deep-fry until croquette became golden brown.



  1. Serve the croquette with Tonkatsu sauce and shredded cabbage.


And for today’s dessert, I’m making Kinkan (kumquat) tart.. <3


By the way, I gave a birth of our first baby on the early Feb.
It’s such a great experience and made me more interested in cooking, since everything I eat make the baby (even after he came out of my tummy)

I delivered Josanin (maternity hospival) which cares more about the natural birth, food and exercise, rather than the medical treatment.

I want to introduce some about them here very soon. :)
