Japanese Hamburg Steak


Today’s diner was Japanese style Hamburg Steak.  We made some hamburgers a few weeks ago and froze 2 that were left over, so just one each tonight. They are not very large so usually my husband would have 2 of them but since we only had two we made a fried egg each – in Japan these “Hamburg steak” are often served with a fried egg on top in casual restaurants.   The side vegetables are boiled carrots and steam & stir-fried green beans with garlic.  The sauce is a a very easy and quick one made with red wine, ketchup and Tonkatsu sauce.  We had it with rice today.


We usually cook these Hamburg steaks in a ratatouille-type vegetable and tomato sauce,  but we had it in a Japanese way today.  My husband says he enjoyed it but he does prefer the one in ratatouille sauce.
