600g of ground beef
500g of ground pork
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
3 tbsp Milk
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1-2 tbsp Olive Oil/ Cooking Oil
1. Add milk into the panko bread crumbs and stir.
2. In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, ground pork, eggs, panko mix, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
3. Divide the meat into 6 to 8 portions. Roll each portion into a ball and push down to flat even steaks.
4. Heat oil in a frying pan. Add the patties in when the oil is hot enough, fry for 4-6 minutes on one side. Flip over and fry for 3-5 minutes covered until cooked through.
5. Remove steak from pan and serve.
Serving suggestion: Serve with mashed potatoes on the sides and top with grated daikon, sliced spring onions and ponzu sauce.
Sometime last month, over the long Jubilee weekend here in Singapore, we realised that half the clan of the furkids are actually August babies and we had a mini birthday party for them! We wanted them to have something different and decided to make them a homemade cake made up of mainly meat patties for dinner.
But since we were already going to get our hands and pantry dirty, we thought that the humans should have an equivalent too! And so that's how we ended up with our dinner, an idea abstracted from Japanese Cooking 101, consisting of hamburger steaks served with mash and topped with grated daikon and ponzu sauce.
And I have to say that the end results were superb even though dinner was served and eaten over measly disposables! Super love the thick and juicy steaks and I never ever thought that a tangy citrusy sauce like that can go so well with those hamburger steaks!
Anyway, you can use any of your favorite recipes for the mash (or you can take reference from my recipe for mashed potatoes here) and you can opt to make your own ponzu sauce from scratch or simply grab a bottle at the supermarket.
And just in case you hate wasting jus just like I do, you can recycle the jus left behind in the pan after you pan-fried those steaks, pour in the required amount of ponzu sauce you will need and allow the mix to simmer for about two to three minutes before serving!
Yes to no wastage of jus and a big handful of happy tummies that night!
But no to an ultra greasy pantry to clean up afterwards. Haha!
