Teriyaki Hamburg Steak

kids friendly

Hamburg steak is a delicious Japanese fusion dish that consists of a patty made from ground beef and pork. Essentially, it's like a burger without the bun, but it's so much more than that! In Japan, we often serve it with rice instead of bread, making it a hearty and satisfying meal. This dish holds a special place in many families' hearts, as each household typically has its own unique recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. It's a great example of the Western influence on Japanese cuisine, resulting in a mouthwatering fusion of flavors. So why not give it a try and say "Itadakimasu" to this delicious meal?




  • 200g Kobe / Wagyu Mince

  • 200g Pork Mince

  • 1 Medium Onion 

  • 1 tbsp Butter

  • 1 tbsp Oil

  • 1 tbsp Grated Ginger (Ginger Paste)

  • 1 Egg

  • 1/4 cup Panko or Bread Crumbs

  • 4 tbsp Milk

  • 1/2 tbs Salt

  • 1 pinch of Black Pepper

  • 1 pinch of Nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup Water

  • 2 tbsp Sugar

  • 6 tbsp Mirin (White Wine)

  • 5 tbsp Soy Sauce

  1. Begin by finely chopping an onion. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add butter. Once the butter has melted, add the onion and cook until it turns golden. Remove the pan from the heat and let the onion cool down.Lightly season with salt and pepper and mix everything together until smooth. You can use your hands to mix the ingredients thoroughly.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine Kobe/Wagyu mince, pork mince, the cooled onion, milk, egg, ginger, nutmeg, and panko bread crumbs.

  3. Form the mixture into four oval patties and remove any air bubbles by tossing them gently from one hand to another. This will prevent the hamburg steak from breaking apart during cooking.

  4. Heat a large frying pan on high and add oil. Cook the patties for 3 minutes on each side, then flip them and add water, sugar, mirin, and soy sauce. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the sauce becomes thick. Alternatively, you can remove the cover and let the sauce simmer until it thickens.


Optional: For a lighter taste, you can add some grated mooli on top. This will help to balance out the rich flavor of the Wagyu beef and make the dish even more delicious. Enjoy your homemade hamburg steak!
