Delicious Deep Fried Pork Meatballs

Delicious Deep Fried Pork Meatballs

Deep fried pork meatballs! Crispy and fragrant on the outside, soft and airy on the inside - these are so delicious! They're recommended for small children too.

Ingredients: About 30 meatballs

Ground pork
300 g
Shiitake mushroom (optional)
1 teaspoon
Salt and pepper
To taste
* Panko
3 tablespoons
* katakuriko
1 tablespoon
* Milk
2 tablespoons
Panko (to coat the meatballs)
As needed
For the sauce:
50 ml
2 tablespoons
Japanese Worcestershire-style Sauce
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon


1. Finely chop the onion and shiitake mushroom. Mix the panko, katakuriko and milk together. Beat the egg in a bowl.
2. Add the chopped onion and mushroom, ground pork, ketchup, salt and pepper and combined * ingredients to the bowl with the egg and mix together very well. Divide into 20 g portions, form into meatballs and coat with panko.
3. Deep fry until golden brown.
4. Make the sauce. Combine the water, ketchup, Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil.
5. Transfer the meatballs and sauce to serving plates to finish. Enjoy these fried meatballs that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
6. To accompany the meatballs: slice 1/2 of an onion thinly. Julienne 1/2 a cucumber. Rinse both in water while massaging them, drain well and sprinkle with 1/2 each of vegetable oil and soy sauce, plus a little salt.
7. The meatballs are great in bentos too. I made cuts in each and sandwiched in a little of the sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made fried meatballs using ground pork. I used less breadcrumbs than I use when making hamburgers.
They're delicious so I uploaded the recipe.
