Directions

  1. Slice eggplants to create 5mm (about 1/4 inch) thick slices.
  2. Add the seasonings under (A) to the ground beef and thoroughly mix. Add green perilla and continue mixing.
  3. Put flour into a re-sealable plastic bag and then place eggplant slices into bag and shake, thoroughly coating all sides.
  4. Sandwich just enough ground beef in between two floured pieces of eggplant to create a uniform cylindrical shape.
  5. Mix the directed amounts under (B) of milk and flour in a bowl. Prepare a separate bowl or tray filled with panko breadcrumbs. Completely dip eggplants into milk-flour mixture, then fully coat with panko breadcrumbs. Repeat for all pieces.
  6. Heat oil to medium. Once heated, fry the breaded eggplants until all sides turn a golden-brown color. Set fried fritters onto a paper-toweled lined plate or rack to cool. Serve fritters with shredded cabbage, ketchup and Worcestshire (or Tonkatsu) sauce.
