Welsh Beef Katsu


  1. Make the sauce by heating the oil in a pan and fry the onion for a few minutes to soften and start to colour, add the garlic and ginger and cook for few minutes.
  2. Add the curry powder and flour and stir for a minute – slowly add the stock stirring all the time to avoid any lumps.
  3. Add the honey and soy sauce – boil and simmer for approx. 10 minutes. You may need to add more water if it’s a bit thick.
  4. If you want a smooth sauce place in a blender.
  5. Take the steaks out of the fridge 20 minutes prior to cooking.
  6. Put the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 different shallow bowls or plates.
  7. Dip the Welsh Beef steaks in the flour, then the egg and then in the breadcrumbs ensuring they’re all coated.
  8. To cook, gently heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the Welsh Beef steaks over a low-medium heat until cooked – approx. 4-5 mins each side. Rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Serve with sticky rice and the delicious katsu curry sauce and a nice crisp salad or slaw.
