What Is Gyukatsu?

rs_037
Gyukatsu is a Japanese dish that consists of breaded, deep-fried beef cutlets. You may be familiar with tonkatsu, the pork equivalent of the dish that has been popular for a long time. Gyukatsu however is quite a novelty! Once a little-known dish, its popularity really exploded from 2015.

The pieces are then deep fried for approximately one minute, resulting in meat being brown and crispy on the outside and partially red inside.

The chef then cuts the pieces into bite-size slices.

"Gyukatsu" literally means beef cuts in Japanese. "Gyu" meaning beef and "katsu" stands for cuts.
