Ground Pork Patties

Ground Pork Patties

These patties are plump, juicy and very delicious when served hot!

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Ground pork
400 g
Green onion or scallion
40 g
Shiitake mushrooms
4 (40 g)
Ginger (grated)
2 teaspoons
Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
Panko
4 tablespoons
Salt
a small amount
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Finely chop the shiitake mushrooms and green onions. Moisten the panko with a little water (until it resembles the consistency of okara).
2. Add the ground pork, mushrooms, onion, ginger, katakuriko, panko, salt and soy sauce into a bowl and blend together.
3. Turn the mixture out onto a chopping board and shape into a large rectangle and cut into your desired size.
4. Add a thin layer of vegetable oil (not listed) to a frying pan and put over the heat. Add the patties and cook on a high heat until browned. Turn them over, add 50 ml hot water to the pan and cover with a lid. Steam the patties on a high heat until the liquid has almost all evaporated and they have turned a nice brown colour.
5. Serve with some mustard soy sauce and eat whilst hot!

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried making chicken patties at first but I couldn't really get the knack of it so decided to try substituting chicken with pork.
