Dutch Croquette ala Febo

Yang ini aku buat dengan isian roux filling seperti yang dijual di Febo. Udah pernah nyobain yang paardenvlees? Wah itu rasanya uenak banget.... tapi sesudah sadar itu daging apa, baru kapok

* 400gr minced beef or chicken
* little bit of button mushroom, thinly sliced
* 2 pcs of garlic, chopped
* small bunch of parsley, finely chopped
* 1 large onion, finely chopped
* 300 gr of toasted breadcrumbs
* 4 pcs of egg white

Roux (filling) ingredients:
* 80 gr of butter
* 80 gr of flour
* 3 cups of stock (amount may vary)
* ground white pepper, salt, nutmeg to taste

Directions on how to make roux:
1.) Melt the butter in a pan slightly brown.
2.) Add flour all at once and stir until completely mixed
3.) Keep them on low heat while adding stock/water bit by bit
3.) Keep stirring until the mix is smooth & creamy enough to mold. Set aside

Cooking the croquettes:
1.) Melt butter to cook onion & garlic until fragrant
2.) Stir in beef/chicken, parsley, mushroom until cooked through
3.) Mix roux & beef/chicken together - add salt, pepper, nutmeg & grated cheese
4.) Set aside and refrigerate for a while so it would be easier to shape
5.) Shape the ragout mixing into balls of 4cm diameter or long shape of 10 cm
6.) Coat with flour, dip into whisked white eggs, then double coat it again with toasted breadcrumbs
7.) Deep fry until light golden color. Set aside and drain on paper towel.

The croquettes are best served hot with mustard dipping. Our family's favorite is Dijonnaise Mustard by Masterfoods. Yummie!!!
