|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)|
|soy sauce(or a pinch of salt)||1/2 teaspoon|
Sautée minced onions in oil or butter until transparent. Set aside to cool.
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.
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.
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!
