Japanese beef and sesame bites with Tonkatsu Sauce

We love a wholesome bite that can do double (or triple) duty as dinner, snack and lunchbox filler. These Japanese-influenced patties are packed full of a reassuring amount of vegies (carrots, zucchini and spring onions), pepped up with sesame, ginger and garlic, and come with a lip-smacking tonkatsu dipping sauce (a blend of soy, Worcestershire and tomato sauces with a bit of mustard and tahini). Toss with noodles and vegies or just dunk away. 

To Serve

A pile of these makes an easy, fun dinner for kids – leftovers are great in a lunchbox – or a hand-around drinks snack for grown-ups, glazed with some of the sauce (the bites, not the adults). To make a more substantial dinner of the bites, cook and then toss, with the sauce through udon noodles with some extra Asian greens
