When I make nikujaga (braised meat and potatoes), I always use the leftovers to make these croquettes. I substitute the eggs and flour with tempura flour to make it easier.
I always make this with leftover "No Added Water Nikujaga" Recipe ID: 1296056.
The konnyaku, onion, and beef is already flavored, so be sure that the ratio of potatoes to other ingredients is no less than 5:1.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
