【Plenty of spices♪ Mentsuyu is delicious! 】 How to make a classic Japanese style hamburg steaks


It was a few years ago when I visited a famous hamburger restaurant, a few minutes’ walk from the company where I was working at the time.
At this time, I realized again the true taste of hamburger steak!
1 hour waiting in line
Finally I entered the store and ordered a special hamburg steaks.
In addition to the exaltation when the hamburg steak was brought to the table, the taste when I ate hamburg steak was very very deicious!!

The meat uses 100% Japanese black beef.
The softy, the overflowing gravy, and the deliciousness were truly moving.

I want to make such a juicy hamburg steak—!!
With that in mind, I decided to make a hamburger politely according to the points.


There are three main tips for making plump and juicy hamburg steaks.

The first is to knead the minced meat firmly.
Before mixing onions and bread crumbs, kneading the meat firmly until it becomes sticky can trap the taste in the meat.

The second is to firmly remove the air from the meat.
If there is air in the meat, the meat will crack when it is baked and the gravy will flow out.
Then throw the meat around for 10 round trips with both hands and catch the broth firmly in the meat.

Third, hold down the center of the meat when baking.
After shaping the meat into the desired shape, lightly press the center of the meat when placing it on the frying pan.
By doing this, you can avoid the sad ending that “the surroundings were burned, but the middle was raw…”
It is also effective in cooking meat evenly.


After making the meat carefully, all you have to do is steam it while watching the heat.
Now you can enjoy hamburg steaks that are as good as the famous restaurant!!
