Japanese recipe: Japanese hamburg steak

This is a juicy Japanese hamburg steak recipe that I cook often.
If you cook right, lots of meat juice come out when you cut open inside.

Two important techniques required in this cooking is
1. Sear the surface of the meats with high heat.
2. Mix the meat with other ingredients very well.

Japanese recipe: Japanese hamburg steak


  • 1 lb Ground beef(453g)  (80/20 is recommended)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Egg
  • 4 tablespoons Bread crumbs(Panko is preferred)
  • 4 tablespoons Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
+Hamburg sauce+
  • 1/4 cup Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Red wine
  • 1/4 cup Tonkatsu sauce
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Butter
  • 1/2 Bouillon cube
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Chop onions finely.
  2. In a pan, add oil and saute onions for about 5mins with medium heat. Season with salt and pepper and cool it off till room temperature. 
  3. Combine bread crumbs and milk in a small bowl and let it sit for about 5 mins.*This makes juicy hamburgs.
  4. In a bowl, combine ground beef, onions (step2), egg, bread crumbs and milk (step3) and season with Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper.  Mix everything very well until the gruel comes up.
  5. Shape the meat (step4) into patties and make a small dent in the center.
  6. Heat the pan to high and place meat patties and cook for about 2mins each side(sear the surface).*If you are cooking with low fat meat, add some oil to the pan.
  7. Reduce the heat to low, put the lid and cook for about 15mins.
  8. Meanwhile, combine all the sauce ingredients except butter and cook in a small pot with low to medium heat for about 15min. Add butter at the end to melt.
  9. Serve cooked meat patties on plates and pour sauce over the meat patties. Drizzle some whipping cream if you like.
