Fluffy Tofu and Ground Pork Burgers

Fluffy Tofu and Ground Pork Burgers

I made these burgers with ground pork that was on sale, and tofu. They have no eggs, so they are fine for people with egg allergies.

Ingredients

Ground pork
200 g
Onion
1
Tofu
150 g
Panko
150 g
☆Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
☆Mirin
2 tablespoons
☆Sugar
1 tablespoon, or 2 tablespoons if you prefer a sweeter flavor
★Salt, pepper, nutmeg
to taste

Steps

1. Sauté half the onion (chopped) until translucent, and let cool.
2. Grate the other half of the onion, and combine with the ☆ ingredients.
3. Add the ★ ingredients to the ground pork and knead together to combine well. Mash the tofu up in another bowl using a whisk. Add the panko and ground pork mixture to the tofu, and form into patties as with regular hamburgers.
4. Heat up the vegetable oil in a frying pan over high heat until the oil is smoking. Turn the heat off, put in the hamburger patties and turn the heat back on, set to medium. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover with a lid.
5. In about 3 minutes when the bottoms of the patties are browned, flip them over.
6. When both sides are browned, add the Step 2 grated onion mixture. Coat the patties with this sauce, and they're done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I only had pork, and I didn't want to make hamburgers, so I added tofu.
