How to Make Broccoli Menchi Katsu (Minced Meat Cutlet) - Video Recipe

"Menchi Katsu" is Minced Meat Cutlet. It is kind of croquette, usually made from the mixture of minced/ground meat (beef or pork, or both) and minced cabbage.

In this recipe, I used broccoli instead of the cabbage. It turned out amazingly tasty and delicious.

You must try this out ;)
