  • Hi, I’m Francis,

  • the host of this show "Cooking with Dog."

  • First, let’s make the homemade ground meat.

  • Chop the beef, and pork slices into 1 inch pieces with a knife.

  • Place the meat into a food processor.

  • Add the salt.

  • Sprinkle on the pepper

  • and the nutmeg.

  • Cover

  • and turn on the processor for about 20 seconds

  • until the meat begins to look smooth and turn kind of gooey.

  • Uncover

  • and pinch the meat to make sure it is ground smoothly.

  • Remove the blade of the processor

  • and place the ground meat into a bowl.

  • Now, let’s combine the meat mixture.

  • Chop up an onion into fine pieces.

  • Place the onion into the bowl.

  • Add the beaten egg,

  • soft bread crumbs,

  • tomato ketchup

  • and Japanese Worcestershire sauce to the meat.

  • With your hands, thoroughly mix the ingredients

  • until the onion blends in completely with the meat.

  • Flatten the meat mixture and divide it into four sections.

  • Shape each quarter into a ball

  • and throw it against your palm several times to remove the air inside.

  • Cool the meat balls in the fridge while preparing the next step.

  • Let’s bread the meat mixture.

  • With a pair of spoons,

  • place the meat ball onto a thick layer of cake flour.

  • Thoroughly cover the meat with the flour

  • and place it onto a tray.

  • Repeat the process for the rest of the meat balls.

  • Next, dust off the excess flour from the meat with your hands.

  • Dip the ball into the beaten egg

  • and thoroughly coat it with the egg using a spoon.

  • Then, place the meat onto a thick layer of soft bread crumbs

  • and completely cover it.

  • Hold the meat and bread crumbs in your palms

  • and shape it into an oval while removing the excess bread crumbs.

  • Place the breaded meat onto a tray.

  • Repeat the process for the rest of the meat balls.

  • Now, let’s deep fry the menchi-katsu.

  • Stir the oil with kitchen chopsticks to even out the temperature.

  • Drop in a bit of the bread crumbs to test the oil.

  • If small bubbles form around them, the oil temperature is right.

  • With a mesh strainer, gently place the menchi-katsu into the oil.

  • The oil temperature should be at about 340 degrees °F or 170 degrees °C.

  • Ladle the hot oil over the meat to cook thoroughly.

  • Don’t touch the menchi-katsu for the first 1 minute.

  • When the outer layer firms up,

  • gently rotate them with the chopsticks to brown evenly.

  • Keep ladling the oil

  • and then gently flip the menchi-katsu.

  • Deep-fry them for a total of 6 minutes until golden brown.

  • Deep-frying the onion slowly will make it sweeter,

  • giving the menchi-katsu a more delicious taste.

  • Gently remove the menchi-katsu with tongs,

  • drain the excess oil

  • and temporarily place them onto a cooling rack.

  • Then, place the menchi-katsu next to the side vegetables on a plate.

  • Enjoy this recipe with the menchi-katsu sauce

  • made from the ingredients at the end of this video

  • and dress the vegetables with your favorite salad dressing.

  • Menchi-katsu with homemade ground meat is absolutely delicious!

  • Good luck in the kitchen!
