Crispy Baked Panko Minced Pork Patties

Thursday, 12 March 2009

Thank you all for your lovely wedding wishes! Our big day is on the 28th March 2009! We are so excited and looking forward to it. We will be heading home to Malaysia soon as the wedding reception will be held there, so bear with me during this period as I won't be posting as frequently.

So, my diet plan continues and here is another healthy yet very tasty recipe. We loved the addition of silken tofu as it made the patties very moist and tender.

Crispy Panko Minced Pork Patties

For minced pork patties:

  • 500g Extra Lean Minced Pork
  • 1 packet (349g) Silken Tofu (Firm)
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbs Panko

  • 2 tbs Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbs Honey
  • 1 tbs Mirin
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbs Chili Oil Flakes - oil drained, use only chili flakes
  • Salt
  • Pepper

For crispy panko coating:
  • 1 Egg - lightly beaten
  • About 2-3 cups Panko
  • Fry Light Sunflower Oil Spray


  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together minced meat and seasonings, breaking up lumps of meat.
  • Add silken tofu and mix until well combined.
  • Mix in 1 egg and 2 tbs panko.
  • Leave aside for at least 30 mins.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Place beaten egg in a plate.
  • Spread 1 cup of panko on a plate.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper or foil.
  • One by one, dip pork patties in beaten egg then transfer to the plate with panko and coat thoroughly. Pour more panko on plate if not enough. Handle pork patties with care as the minced pork and tofu mixture is very soft.
  • Arrange pork patties on baking tray.
  • Spray the patties with oil spray.
  • Bake at 200°C for 20 mins.
  • Switch oven to broil, broil until crust is browned (about 5-10 mins).
  • Flip patties over and continue broiling until browned. Keep an eye out closely as they will burn within seconds!
  • Serve with your favourite sauces i.e. sweet Thai chili sauce, Lingham's chili sauce, tonkatsu sauce...

I need to apologize - I misunderstood - I thought 'the big day' was a diet you were starting not a wedding - good luck and congratulations....

Jescel said...

can't wait to read about your wedding.. and i haven't tried adding silken tofu to my pork patties.. thanks for the tip.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Congratulations on your wedding. You must be excited!

I have not tried pork patties with tofu before, thinks for the idea.

Wild Boar said...

I love eating meatballs. The Pigpig's decision to add tofu actually made it nicer by adding a softer texture to a dish that can sometimes be a bit tough if not cooked properly. And panko = win!

Soma said...

Oh MY! Those look so good! Have a great day! 28th is not far away!!!

Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella said...

Those patties look fantatsic. I love using panko breadcrumbs in place or regular ones. It always makes them super earth shatteringly crunchy :)
