Easy Okara Burger

Easy Okara Burger

Okara burgers are so much easier to make than tofu burgers!! They're healthy, yummy, and even kids will enjoy them.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Carrot
1/2
Onion (large)
1
Ground pork
200g
Fresh okara
100 g
Egg
1
Panko
1-2 tablespoons
Milk
30ml
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Sauce
Butter
10 g
Shimeji mushrooms
1 bunch
Tonkatsu sauce (Japanese-style Worcestershire-style sauce or steak sauce)
4-5 tablespoons
Ketchup
3-4 tablespoons
Mirin
1-2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Mince the carrot and onion. Sauté both until the onions are tender, and then season with salt and pepper. When finished, turn off the heat and let cool.
2. Combine the egg, panko, and milk in a bowl.
3. Add the okara and mix.
4. Add the ground pork, cooked carrots and onions, and salt and pepper.
5. When done mixing, form round patties and use the palms of your hands to knock out the air pockets.
6. Heat oil in the frying pan and pan-fry 4 burgers at once.
7. Once each one has browned, place on a plate. Use the same frying pan to make the sauce. Put in 10 g of butter and sauté the shimeji mushrooms.
8. Once the shimeji have become tender, lower the heat to low and add the tonkatsu sauce, ketchup, and mirin. Pour the sauce over the burgers and they're done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had some leftover homemade okara and ingredients for hamburger steak, so I made this.
