Bite-Sized Cheese Cutlet Balls (Dango Kushikatsu) - Video Recipe

This is a cute Cheese Kushikatsu (Pork Cutlet Balls) that looks like Dango (mochi dumplings on a stick)!


Great for potluck party, bento, and snack!

Bite-Sized Cheese Cutlet Balls (Dango Kushikatsu)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4

8 thinly sliced pork
8 candy cheese (or diced processed cheese)
salt and cracked black pepper
* flour
* beaten egg
* Panko (bread crumbs)
* white sesame seeds
* black sesame seeds
vegetable oil for frying
Tonkatsu sauce *optional

1. Place the slices of pork so that the length of it is running flat and vertically towards you. Sprinkle a bit of salt and cracked black pepper (onto one side) and place the candy cheese (or diced processed cheese) on the end of the pork close to you and start rolling (wrap the cheese securely).
2. Flour the pork balls lightly, dip in beaten egg, then coat 4 pork balls with Panko with white sesame seeds and the other 4 with Panko with black sesame seeds. Use one hand to coat flour and Panko, and use the other to dip in egg to keep one of your hands dry.
3. Skewer two pork rolls on each bamboo sticks. Fry them in oil at 170C (340F) until cooked golden brown. Remove the Kushikatsu from the oil and drain.

The recipe is posted on QBB's (Japanese Cheese Company's) website ;)
