Do you like a croquette? I love it! It’s a very common menu for a daily supper in Japan, too. Especially, before the paycheck!! I usually season them with soy-sauce,sake,sugar,mirin(cooking wine)and pepper while I’m stir-frying minced beef with pork. I should tell you that in Japan they usually have minced beef with pork. At the supermarket, there are many packs of minced beef with pork with a couple of different sizes, but you can’t find a large pack of beef ONLY. If you want it, you have to ask a shopman to pack it for you. I don’t know why. Maybe, it’s too pricey for daily use for the Japanese. Beef is expensive, so it is supposed to be eaten in a solid shape. Do i make sense? I don’t think so. How should I put this? To mince beef is a big deal for the common Japanese. That’s why the McDonald Japan says “Our patty is made of 100% beef!” loudly. How do you think? Do you make a hamburger with minced beef with pork?
