Brown the Beef

Let's start with the curry first. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and brown the chuck roast cubes.

Sauté the Veggies

Sauté the onion, then cook the potatoes, carrots, and celery for a few minutes. Next, add in enough beef stock to cover everything.

Cook the Curry

Bring everything to a boil, then add the curry cubes and browned beef. Then, turn the heat down and let the curry simmer for 30-40 minutes. 

Pound the Chicken

Time to start the chicken katsu! Begin by pounding the chicken to an even thickness in a plastic bag. Then, prepare the breading station in 3 bowls.

Bread the Chicken

Coat your chicken in flour, dip it in the egg mixture, and finally cover it in breadcrumbs, Fry it on both sides for 3-4 minutes, and repeat until all the chicken is fried.


Start with a bed of white rice. Then, ladle a serving of curry on top of the rice, and arrange the chicken katsu (sliced into thin strips) around the curry.


Enjoy your chicken katsu curry as-is, or serve it with some roasted veggies or soup!
