Ingredients: 3 to 4 servings

Hamburger patties
Ground combined pork and beef
250 g
▲ Onions
80 to 100 ml
● Panko
1/2 cup
as needed (I use a lot !)
Salt and pepper
a small amount
2 tablespoons
300 to 350 ml
Soup stock cubes
Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce
3 tablespoons
5 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
★ Onion (sliced along the grain)
★ Mushrooms (shiitake, enoki, or shimeji mushrooms)
as needed


1. [Preparation] Mince the onion from ▲ and stir fry in vegetable oil until the color becomes golden brown. Mix all ● ingredients and soften the panko.
2. Combine Step 1 and the rest of the ingredients to make hamburger patties in a bowl.
3. Knead together very well. At this process, try to use only the fingers of your hands to mix the ingredients evenly.
4. Spread plastic wrap on a cutting board and round the patties on it. You won't dirty the cutting board if you cover with plastic wrap.
5. Slap the patties from step 4 between your palms to eliminate air pockets and shape them into oval shape. Make dents in the middle and brown both sides of the patties on medium heat. Then transfer to a plate. It's fine even the inside is uncooked.
6. After frying all the patties, keep the juice in the frying pan, which came out of the patties. Don't discard this.
7. Put flour in the pan and roast it on medium heat until the color is golden brown. Keep stirring with a spatula so it doesn't burn.
8. Take out the roasted flour from the pan. Stir fry the ★ ingredients with 1 tablespoon of butter until wilted. When the vegetables are wilted, add the roasted flour to the pan and mix well.
9. Add water a little at a time to dissolve. Add ground soup stock cube, Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce, ketchup and the juice from Step 6 and bring to a boil.
10. Add the hamburger and stew for about 10 - 15 minutes in between medium heat and low heat to cook through the hamburgers, then it is done.
11. Garnish with parsley, boiled egg or boiled vegetables! You can freeze it if you made a lot ! To defrost, add a little bit of sake and warm in a pan.
