Mixed ground beef and pork
600g
Onion

Panko
1 1/2 cups
Milk
100ml

6 tablespoons
★ Grated garlic
1 tablespoon
Beaten egg (large)
1
★ Salt and pepper

For the sauce:
Demi-glaze sauce (canned, Heinz brand)
1 can
Water
200ml

a small amount
Accompaniment:
Carrot
1
Potatoes

Steps

1. Mince the onions, saute until softened, and transfer to a bowl to cool. Soak the panko in milk.
2. Mix 1 and the ★ ingredients into the ground meat and thoroughly knead.
3. Divide into 5 equal portions once it all sticks together. Remove the air by tossing each ball back and forth like playing catch, and mold into patties. (use 2 and store the rest in the freezer).
4. Heat up oil in a pan, and brown the hamburgers on both sides.
5. Add the demi-glaze and water to step to 4, bring to a boil, add ☆ and boil for 20-30 minutes (flip over occasionally).
6. While boiling, peel the carrots, and microwave. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized chunks and fry with the skins intact.
7. Arrange 5 and 6 on a plate, drizzle with fresh cream, and serve.
