5 Minute Hamburger Rice Bowl!

5 Minute Hamburger Rice Bowl!

Onion and ground meat is stir-fried with a ketchup sauce containing the secret ingredient, butter. My kids gobbled it right up exclaiming that it tastes just like a hamburger!

Ingredients: 3 servings

Ground beef or pork
200 g
★Ketchup, Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce
3 tablespoons each
★Soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon
5-10 g
to taste


1. Mince the onion. Patiently and slowly cook the onions in a frying pan, then add the meat.
2. Add the ★ ingredients and bring to a boil. ※ Since this will be placed over rice, the seasoning ingredients are measured out for a relatively strong flavor! If it's too light-tasting for you, adjust with salt. Use lots of pepper.
3. Spread some shredded lettuce on top of the rice and under the meat. Add grated or melting-type cheese. Top with a fried or poached egg. Cook with minced carrot or shiitake mushrooms.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make hamburgers but realized that I only had 200 g of ground meat in my refrigerator. Plus I didn't have any time. I used the same ingredients to make a rice bowl and the kids exclaimed that it tasted just like a hamburger! Topping it on lettuce makes the texture a bit more interesting, so I highly recommend it!
If you make extra, you can spread it on bread the next day to make a "hamburger" lol.
