How to make stewed hamburg steak

18 May

Hamburg steak is called “hambaagu” in Japan and is often cooked at home. It’s considered Yoshoku, or western cuisine arranged in Japanese way.

Ingredients for 4-5 people
-hamburger patty
(minced pork 350g, minced beef 150g, egg x 3, mid-sized onion x 2, breadcrumb 4tbs, some milk, grated garlic 1 tsp, salt 0.5tsp, some pepper)
*Minced meat mixed from pork and beef is quite common in Japan.
*Some milk…enough to cover the breadcrumb
(water 500cc, ketchup 6tbs, Worcestershire sauce 2tbs, sugar 1tsp, soy sauce 1tsp, bay leaf x 1)

Put the following ingredients into the bowl and knead the dough.
-minced pork and beef
-finely-chopped onion
-breadcrumb soaked in milk
-grated garlic
-salt and pepper

Make golf ball sized patties, prepare a frying pan with a little cooking oil on and cook both sides of the patties until brown on top.

At the same time (while you do above) put all the ingredients to make the sauce into a deep pot and warm it. (Do not boil but just keep it warm.)

Enter the patties into the pot.

Use aluminum foil as in the below photo to make a drop-lid for simmering and place a lid over a pot while turn the heat high. Once it’s getting boiled, make the heart medium low or low and simmer for 30 minutes. (You can add ketchup if your kids like sweeter taste, for example.)

Done! This is suitable for bento as it tastes good when it’s cold too. I’m sure kids will love it too!! 😀

Hope it’s not too difficult and you like it. ^ ^

    Hi Kirin,

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I tried it few days after you posted and my husband and my sons love it. My husband is a Japanese and he prefers to eat Japanese food so he was so happy to eat this stewed hamburg.
