Potato Korokke

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (7 Reviews)


It's a korokke (or croquette) made with mashed potatoes.


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • salt pepper to season
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • flour and panko (breadcrumb) for coating
  • vegetable oil for frying


Boil potatoes until softened. Drain and mash potatoes while they are hot. Heat some oil in a medium skillet and saute onion and beef until cooked through. Mix mashed potatoes and onion and beef in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and let it cool. Make flat and oval-shaped patties. Coat each piece with flour. Dip in beaten egg, and coat with panko at last. Deep-fry in about 350 degrees F oil until browned.
