I adapted this from a korokke recipe I frequently use. Korokke is a Japanese fried croquette made with seasoned ground meat and mashed potato. I combined the seasoning used there with a standard meatloaf recipe to create this fun hybrid. I serve it with mashed potatoes and a spicy barbeque sauce.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat corn oil and sesame oil in a large skillet. Add carrots, green bell pepper, and onion; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar, and fish soup stock. Mix in garlic and ginger. Let cool, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Mix turkey, pork, and eggs together in a large bowl until blended. Stir in cooled carrot mixture and bread crumbs until well combined. Press evenly into a loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C); continue baking until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 30 minutes more.

  • Let stand before serving, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute cream sherry for the mirin if desired.

This was delicious. I didn't have fish stock so I added a tiny bit of fish sauce and a little bit of rice wine vinegar for sake. Didn't need any extra sauce but sure would be good with it too. I ate it cold. and hot.. wonderful both ways Read More
