Japanese Hamburg Steak with Scrambled Egg Topping

I previously posted about a Japanese hamburg recipe and mentioned that it’s common to add a fried egg on top of hamburg steaks. Here is a delicious alternative where only one more easy step is added to elevate your tastebuds when enjoying hamburg steaks!

INgredients (3 servings)
Ground Beef & Pork Mix
(100% Ground Beef is also fine)
 0.5lb / 250g
Yellow Onion¼
Panko (Japanese Breadcrumbs)4 Tablespoons
Salt¼ Teaspoon
Ground Nutmeg¼ Teaspoon
[SAUCE] Ketchup4 Tablespoons
[SAUCE[] Worcestershire Sauce2 Tablespoons
[SAUCE] Water4 Tablespoons
[EGG] Egg4
[EGG] Milk8 Tablespoons
[EGG] Salt¼ Teaspoon
Butter2 Teaspoon / 10g


  1. Finely dice the onion.
  2. Gently cook the diced onions in a fry pan on medium-low heat until onions turn soft.
    In a large bowl, combine the cooked onions, ground meat, egg, panko, salt and nutmeg and mix well.
  3. Form patties into a ball shape and toss the patty from one hand to the other hand for 2-3 times in order to release air (this will help prevent the patty from cracking when pan fry). Lay them out on a flat surface and gently press them flatter.
  4. Heat some oil in a fry pan on medium heat and cook the patties until one side turned brown. Flip patties to cook the other side, pour in [SAUCE] mixture, cover the pan with a lid and cook on medium-low heat until patties are cooked through. Set aside on serving plates.
  5. To make the scrambled egg topping, whisk [EGG] ingredients together in a microwavable mixing bowl. Heat the mixture for 1 minute 30 seconds (in a 600W) or 45 seconds (in a 1000W) microwave. Add butter into the egg mixture, stir well and heat again for 1 minute 30 seconds (in a 600W) or 45 seconds (in a 1000W) microwave. Mix well and serve on top of hamburg steaks.
  6. DŌZO!
