Let's Cutlet the Dragon to Pieces![edit | edit source]

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • Giant Frog thigh meat (1)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Coating (flour, bread crumbs, water; as needed)
  • Butter (50 grams)
  • Onion (1 med. size)
  • Red wine (100 ml)
  • Garlic (1 clove)
  • Soy sauce (3 tbsp)
  • Sugar (1 tbsp)[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name in both English and Japanese is a pun: in Japan, there is a tradition of eating tonkatsu (a similarly breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet) or katsudon (rice topped with tonkatsu) the night before major exams. This is because katsu (the shortened form of katsuretsu meaning 'cutlet') is a homophone for the verb 'to win' (勝つ, katsu).[3]
