In Japan, a hamburger-steak or ハンバーグ hambagu, is more popular than a hamburger.
It is basically the hamburger pate, but the ingredient in it is a bit different.
First of all, the grounded meat is not 100% beef, but it is usually mixed with grounded pork.
With 50% grounded beef and 50% grounded pork, chopped onions, eggs, and panko, which is bread crumbs, are in it.
This makes the hambagu more juicy and softer.
Hambagu is eaten with a variety of sauces, such as gravy-ish sauce, tomato sauce, or Japanese style sauce.
Since all Japanese, from kids to adult, love hambagu, you can have this anywhere in Japan.
It is also a Japanese traditional home dish.
Also, many people like to eat hambagu with rice and miso soup.
That’s our favorite western-style Japanese food.
