Hamburger: Ingredients


ground meat (beef or beef/pork mixture) 400 grams
onion 1/4 , minced
butter or vegetable oil 1 tablespoon
white bread or 8-10 centimeter piece of French bread 1 slice(remove crust, soak in water, squeeze thoroughly, and break apart--makes about 1/3 cup)
egg 1
soy sauce(or a pinch of salt) 1/2 teaspoon
black pepper  

step 1

Sautée minced onions in oil or butter until transparent. Set aside to cool.

step 2

Mix meat, soy sauce, and onions in a bowl. Add bread when the mixture becomes sticky, and stir some more. Add beaten egg and sprinkle pepper to taste.

step 3
step 4

Form into patties with both hands. The patties may be big enough for a single serving or made small so that there are two or three patties per serving. Cook in oil or butter in a frying pan. When using ground pork, keep the patties thin so that they can be cooked through fully.

step 5

Fry over a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, then flip over and cook for 3 to 4 more minutes, gently pressing on the patty with a spatula. (Cooking time varies according to the size and thickness of the patty.)

Insert a skewer into the meat. If the meat juice is clear, you're done!
