Low-Carb Pulled Beef Croquette

Wednesday Dinner

- Low-Carb Pulled Beef Croquette
- Sautéed Sauerkraut, Carrot and Celery
- Blaised Mushrooms
- Miso Soup (Tofu/Wakame)

Croquettes are one of the most popular dish in Japanese home cooking.  Many people grow up eating mother's homemade croquettes or the ones we buy hot from a butcher.  I am the latter and am not a big fan of croquettes but I remember the warmth of croquettes (deep-fried on order) in my hand on the way home.

My low-carb croquettes are made with Okara (soy pulp) instead of potatoes because I don't buy potatoes (Recipe below).  Okara by itself is dry and boring but it transforms into to something magical with a touch of psyllium husk.  I think of Okara as almond flour substitute with a lot of moisture.

Low-Carb Pulled Beef Croquette (Makes 6, Serves3-4)


  • 135g Okara (soy pulp)
  • 300g Leftover pulled beef
  • 1tsp Psyllium husk
  • 2 handfuls of coconut fine


  1. Dry roast coconut fine in a frypan until golden brown
  2. Mix all the other ingredients (add water if too dry)
  3. Shape into 6 balls
  4. Roll in the toasted coconut fine to coat
  5. Bake in the oven until warm
