【深夜食堂煮婦同樂會第8話】- 漢堡扒

So this week’s assignment is one of my favourites: 漢堡扒. Actually by the time I publish this I will be in Croatia on holiday (real holiday rather than a weekend trip)! Today we are in Dubrovnik so perhaps I will post about the local cuisine here. But before I get comments about me bragging about my travels again, I had better get on with cooking!

The hamburger is of course one of America’s biggest exports although I don’t know if that’s where it was originally invented. Since we are preparing this “western” dish in a distinctly “eastern” setting, I have made some adjustments to the marinating stage of the meat. Normally I would probably not even bother marinating but in hindsight I think it does a lot to improving the taste of the patty. Also sometimes I might mix in a little minced pork (may be around 30%) as it provides more fat content and makes for a juicier burger but on this occasion I wanted all beef.

So on to the ingredients :

Mince beef…………….250g
Onion……………………Half (finely chopped)
Bread crumbs………..About 1 medium slice of bread
Egg………………………1 small

1) Marinate the mince. I used a bit of Korean kalbi sauce I had in the fridge and added sugar, pepper, a bit of Lea & Perrin, a bit of Chinese rice wine and a little bit of water. I did not add salt until cooking.

2) After a while mix in the onions and bread crumbs then finally the egg to hold everything together.

3) Shape the burgers as you like them. As an experiment I hid some cheese in the middle of 2 of mine to see if I could get the dripping cheese effect.

4) Brown both sides of the burgers on a high heat before adding salt and turning the heat lower to cook to the desired degree. Because I did not use steak mince, I cooked mine through.

5) Serve!

These turned out pretty tasty although I don’t think the pictures do them justice. I had thought that the cheese might not have gone well with the Asian marinate but actually it worked quite well (even though I used a pretty pungent Swiss cheese). Obviously I did not hide enough cheese in there though so did not get that oozing effect but it tasted good nevertheless. And of course how can one eat a burger without the obligatory beer!
