Japanese styled hamburg steak

4 Aug

Today’s recipe is Japanese styled hamburg steak. πŸ™‚

Are you interested in how to cook it?

Ingredients for 2 people
-minced meat (beef and pork) x 200g *In Japan, minced meat often comes with mixture of beef and pork.
-onion (1)
-breadcrumb (half cup)
-milk (50cc)
-egg (1)
-miso (1tbs)
-mayo (1tbs)
-nutmeg, pepper (adequate)
-white wine (100cc)

The point is miso and mayonnaise. Miso and mayo are great combination! Thanks to their saltiness, you don’t need to add extra salt.

Cut the onion into small pieces. Sop the breadcrumb with milk. Mix all the ingredients into a bowl excluding white wine, and knead the dough well.

Divide the dough into 2, pour some oil, heat the frying pan and place them on the pan. Cook both sides until brown, add white wine and cover the pan with a lid to steam and roast the hamburgers.

Prepare following ingredients to make a hamburg sauce.
-water (200cc)
-onion (half)
-soup stock (bouillon) x 1 (5g)
-soy sauce (1tbs)
-mirin (1tbs)
-balsamic vinegar (1tbs)
-sugar (1tsp)
-Daikon (Japanese radish) x H5cm
-green peril (2)

Cut the onion into fine pieces. Take out the hamburgers from frying pan and stir-fry the onion for about 5 minutes. (Be careful not to burn it!)

Add water and make it boil. Eliminate the scum.

Add soup stock, soy sauce, mirin, balsamic vinegar, and sugar to simmer for a few minutes.

Put the sauce over the hamburg, place some grated daikon and a green peril, and it’s done!

Was it too difficult?
Hope you enjoy Japanese styled hamburger! πŸ™‚
*Sorry for messing with “hamburg” and “hamburger”. In Japanese this is called hamburg (ハンバーグ).

        Well..Well..Actually…I havent seen miso before here …It might be selling in the big cities which inculde all the things..Well I will ask about that…But How do you make miso in Japan…I meant what are its ingredients???
        ….Hmmm I love alot mayonnaise..Here in Morocco we put some of it on Boiled vegetables…I love to put it on the boiled potatoes, carrots, ..beet….so on…..
        For example here we take a boiled potatoes, a boiled beet… and boiled eggs..And we cut these potoatoes,beet, eggs into small pieces……..And then we add on it mayonnaise ….And we mix them with eachothers
        ..Hmm and we put them on fridge for a while..To become a little bit cold …And then we eat it hahhah..I love this dish a lot hihi..

        Oh you don't have to ask, I simply wondered. ^ ^ I think Asian market will have it.
        Miso is made from soy beans and salt. Hmm…I've never made it by myself haha! http://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%B3%D

    It seems to me that one of the big differences between Japan and the US is the need to innovate and improve. Once Americans have something good we feel that good is good enough. The Japanese however always seem to be trying to make something good just a little bit better. And then continue to look for ways to improve it again and again. A Ford car is good a Toyota is better. A Magnovox TV is good. A Sony is better. McDonalds is good. Hamburg is better. The only time we improve something is when Japan begins to cut into our profit margins. Hooray for the Japanese. Without them we would still have vacuum tubes in our radios and still be driving Pintos. I cannot wait to try your recipe for hamburg. Oishii desu ne.

      Very interesting, Steve.
      Over here people say Americans always are so creative as to make something new and cool from nothing but the downside is that it's like forever beta version. The Japanese on the other hand, are not as creative as Americans to make something new from scratch but we are good at modifying and arranging what Americans created. lol

        You thinking is exactly the same as mine on this subject. Only, as usual, you say it so much better.

      • kirin August 9, 2011 at 12:15 pm #

        Oh good that was what you meant! ^ ^ (If I find it difficult to understand what you said, that'd be because of my English, haha! Your comments are always interesting to read.)
