What a good timing! When I was thinking to make a "Hamburg steak" in the near future, uncle Mo gave me some "Panko" or "Bread crumbs."
As you know, "Panko" is a Japanese word but it was originally combination of Pan which is derived from Portuguese (pão) and Japanese (ko) which is abbreviation of "Kona" meaning "flour."
Just like a western word and a Japanese word were combined well, western dishes with Japanese Panko are excellent.
Today, for my first time, I made a Hamburger (It's called "Hamburg" in Japan.)
Ingredients (4 servings) *I made more than double for 10 people which means two times meal for my family.
Ground Beef 400 gram or 14 oz
Onion 1/2 Onion
Butter 1 tbs
Panko 30 gram or 1.05 oz
Milk 3 tbs
Egg 1 Egg
Salt 1/2 small spoon
Pepper a little
Nutmeg a little
Salad oil 1/2 tbs
1. Fry finely cut onion with butter. Do not fry too much.
2. Make fried onion coold down.
3. Mix ground beef, salt, pepper and nutmeg very well in a bowl. It's important to mix beef with salt first. So that beef can be sticky.
4. Add milk (3tbs), Panko (30gram), Beaten Egg (*I made mistake), and then fried cool onion and mix them well. Take and hit mixed beef to the bowl a few times in order
to take out all the air insdie the mixed beef.
5. Make oval shape hamburg.
6. Heat frypan and pour salad oil a little. Then fry hamburg by turing them upside down.
Comleted. They are my very first bamburg! They are not looking good but tasted good!
I believe.....now, my wife has to admit...... she is lucky to have a good husband!
