Japanese Gastronomy: Juicy Hamburger Recipe-Nikujiru Afureru Hanbaagu-肉汁あふれるハンバーグ

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-1

The Japanese make a clear distinction between hamburgers served sandwiched between buns or bread and open hamburgers.

They call the American variety served between buns “hanbaaga” whereas minced meat steaks (stak hache in French) “hanbaagu”! Very little diffrenec in pronuciation but big difference in concept and serving!

Moreover the Japanese like their “hanbaagu” as “juicy” as possible, which explains why so many people prefer the open hamburgers in this country.
Here is a slightly off the beaten tracks recipe which should please those who like their favorite food soft and juicy!

Bear in mind that I leave the quantities open to allow for personal priorities. This is only the basic recipe left open to many variations!

INGREDIENTS:

Finely ground meat: preferably a mixture of beef and pork. Beef only is fine (for hallal and kosher cuisinesin particular)!
Finely chopped onion
Salt
Black pepper
Nutmeg
Breadcrumbs/panko
Milk (replace with light beef stock for kosher cuisine)
Eggs
Butter (skip or use fake butter for kosher cuisine)
Balsamico vinegar
Optional spices: Chili pepper, etc.
Optional vegetables: finely chopped vegetables (garlic, carrits, etc.) to be added to chopped onion

RECIPE:

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-2

Right away this recipe differs from more conventional ones:
On a cold frying pan drop finely chopped onion. Pour oil over the onion (not before dropping the onion in the frying pan) and stir-fry over low fire. This will allow oil to coat onion and prevent the taste to escape! Fry onion until they have become soft and transparent.
Let the onion cool completely first!

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-3

In a bowl drop the meat and add salt. Mix the salt in with a spatula.
Do not use your fingers! Otherwise the fat inside the meat will liquefy.

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-4

Mix the salt and meat until the meat attains a paste aspect. This requires some effort but this is one the keys for a juicy and soft “hanbaagu”!

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-5

Once you have achieved a paste form add onion, bredacrumbs, egg, milk, black pepper and mix well.
This time mix by hand! You should obtain a very sticky mixture than.

Note: as for salt added to the meat, the right amount is 0.8 % of the meat weight. This is the best amount to help control the amount of of water inside all ingredients. Too much salt and the meat will become watery. Not enough salt and the meat will dry down. A bit complicated, I understand! Actually this the amount of salt found inside a human body!

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-6

On a cold frying pan pour some oil. Deposit the hanbaagu over the oil and fry over a low fire.
A hot fire will mean a hard surface and a raw inside! Moreover the water contained inside the meat will escape and break the hanbaagu.
This is another important key to a juicy hanbaagu!

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-7

Do not put a lid over the meat! Other wise the temperature will rise too quickly and the hanbaagu will end flat!
Sponge off the first liquid coming out of the meat with kitchen paper as shown above.
When the bottom face has been properly cooked turn over and again sponge off any liquid coming out.

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-8

As an indication, once more than half of the meat has turned whitish it means that the bottom face is properly cooked. At this time turn the hanbaagu over.

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-9

It will take 12~13 minutes to cook the hanbaagu properly on both faces. When yo see some transparent juices seeping out the meat will have been cooked properly.

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-10

Take hanbaagu off the frying pan.
Add balsamico vinegar to the juices and reduce until half of it over a medium fire.
Add salt then if necessary.
Mix in some butter to liaise the sauce.
Place the hanbaagu over the sauce and coat both sides/faces and serve immediately with the rest of the sauce poured over the meat.

JUICY-HAMBAAGU-11

When you cut the hanbaagu it should be soft and well cooked but juices should not run out. But you bite it you will then be able to taste the juices inside the meat!

Bon appetit!

Hamburgers in Shizuoka 3: Tequila’s Diner!

Service: Shy but very friendly
Equipment & Facilities: Good general cleanliness
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive but very good value
Strong points: Tex-Mex gastronomy of superior quality. Doubles up as bar in evenings

These past years, for the pleasure of quality-minded hamburger lovers, we are witnessing the emergence of new diners (as they say in the States) which not only have the merit not to be part of chain stores with all the consequent disappointments, but which also endeavor to serve full and appetizing repasts in a slow enough manner to guarantee unhurried satisfaction.

I had meant to visit Tequila’s Diner in Aoi ku, Shizuoka City for quite some time, especially at lunch.
The problem is that it is really busy and the waiting is long, it being slow food!

They do make an effort at their English!

Pick your sign!

The menu is clearly posted outside! A plus, definitely!

And written in both languages!

I had decided on my order before entering the place!

The Japanese customers prefer to sit inside in a congested room sitting about 14~16 people but I wouldn’t give away that small table outside to anyone!
The place was full so the table outside was gladly agreed with on my request!
The Chef even asked me if I wanted the parasol fit in for me (which I declined!)
Next time I’ll make sure to have the same place in the evening!
For all his tattoos and scars, Chef Chihirou Okamoto is a shy and friendly bloke always ready to serve!

For 200 more yen I got a glass of beer and one soft drink and two small appetizers!

My “Tequila’s Favorite” order!

I noted with pleasure that the fried potatoes were not served with the usual mountain of salt but with just enough salt and black pepper!

The appetizers: corn salad and ham on coleslaw!

No, I didn’t use my hands but ate the whole the slow way with fork and knife!

The egg was fried to perfection, although I’m sure you can request it cooked longer for those who don’t like runny eggs!

Being from Bourgogne I always add mustard on my potatoes!

I told you that a good hamburger is a full meal: bread, Fresh and cooked vegetables, beef, bacon, cheese and egg!

I’m definitely planning to come back soon one evening with an American friend and enjoy real American food outside, away from the smoke!

Hamburgers in Shizuoka 2: Taiwan Hamburger at Gonta Chaya!

Service: easy-goin, smiling and very friendly.
Facilities: old but clean.
Prices: very reasonable, extremely good value.
Strong points: Enormous portions but very healthy slow food on the whole
no-smoking-logoentirely non-smoking!

Gonta Chaya (notice the no-smoking sign!)

This all started with an article posted by my new foodie friend at Local Lemons who wrote an article about the trouble she bumped into thanks to MacDonald’s who threatened to sue her for using the word “Mac” in the name of her new restaurant in SanFrancisco:

To state the obvious, the notorious diner, thanks to its untold wealth, is not only making a profit out of its dubious junk food, but is also suing (for money!) everyone in sight at the mere mention of the word “mac”. I wonder if all these friends of mine with a surname starting with mac or Mc will be one day forced to change it!

I do not like the burgers of that company for the simple reason that they are unworthy when it comes to nutritious value and health damage!

Unpretentious decor in Gonta Chaya. Keep to the taste!

Alright, let’s stop babbling about the horned liars and talk about real food, and slow at that!

Gonta Chaya (Manki Neko) was opened on April 15th, 2008 in Sengen Street, the thoroughfare leading to Sengen Shrine, the major Shinto Shrine in Shizuoka City. Husband and wife were originally born in Yamaguchi and Aichi Prefecture but moved to Shizuoka about 12 years ago.
They always had wanted to offer slow (and real) food and finally got their wish when they open Gonta Chaya in our city.
Not only they do greatly care for good food, but also for their environment as they uncompromisingly banned smoking from their premices!

Have you heard of Maneki Neko?

They started as a Taiwanese-Nagoya-style ramen restaurant but heir love for good meat and hamburgers incited them to add the American delicacy to their menu.
And they certainly haven’t achieved half-measures, and that with ridiculously cheap prices (count 80~85 yen for 1 US $/10 % reduction for people over 60!):
Burger menu (ramen and others is another long and yummy propostion!):
Sengen Junior Burger: 350 yen
Sengen Burger: 500 yen
Sengen Double Burger: 700 yen
Sengen Triple Burger: 999 yen
Super Sengen Burger: 750 yen (drink included)
Super Sengen Burger Double: 1,100 yen ( ” )
Sengen Oyako Burger: 300 yen
Sengen Burger Set (Lunch only)

What did I choose!
The Super Sengen Burger!
An incredible half-pounder of Australian beef, not overcooked but slow-cooked (be patient!) to the perfect cripsy outside and juicy inside!
It is further enhanced with a crispy fried piece of bacon!

As for the Super Sengen, the buns are mercifully thinner but still home-made and toasted to a crisp bite.
You are going through a real maze of tastes thanks to sauces and dressings added in the right proportion.
Open/lift the bun, and you will discover a full meal with a load of fesh vegetables!

The cheese is real sliced cheese and the egg is fried to a juicy peak!
It is a full meal, I can’t guarantee you!

The place is open for lunch every day, but for dinner only on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
They offer plenty to drink from Shizuoka Sake, Shizuoka Tea Shochu, Shochu, German and japanese beer, wine and soft drinks.

They also can lodge foreign backpackers for a good price in their home above the restaurant! Will write an article about that son!

Are you convinced?

Hamburgers in Shizuoka 1: G.O.T. Hamburger at Good Old Table in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very Friendly
Equipment & Facilities: Old but clean. Very clean washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Hamburgers and Tec-Mex gastronomy.

I’ve always wondered about the meaning of “Junk & Soul Food”!
Friends of mine had told me their hamburgers were nice enough so I took the opportunity to visit the place during my lunch break today!

The whole place is inspired by US and Mexican lore, but I’m sure it is a lot cleaner!

The writing on the walls certainly invites you to enjoy the food! LOL

Have a look at their “newsletter”!
Someone might feel inclined to give an American English lesson!
Although I’m sure no one did in their four years of existence!

The menus are everywhere, on the tables, pinned on the walls and even in the washroom!

The menu on the table!

My order: GOT (Good Old Table) Hamburger Lunch Set including potatoes (Fried or mashed), soup, salad and drink (I had a hot coffee).

Hot soup and mixed coleslaw salad.

The GOT hamburger!
The size is definitely American!

You cannot eat it with your fingers as it is a nikomi/slowly cooked and simmered style.
Forks, knives and spoons are provided.

I had chosen mashed potatoes to scoop with all the hamburger sauce!

It actually makes for a copious well-balanced meal!

And yes! The meat was tender and properly cooked!
And very tasty! Heads and shoulders above McDonald’s. And volume for volume, cheaper!
A very good place indeed for hungry expats and Japanese alike!

Japanese-style Hamburger: Basic Recipe

The Japanese, like almost everyone in this World, love their “hamburgers”!
But the way the Japanese go at it is slightly different in concept, design and taste from more “regular” types found on the American and European continents.
The Japanese name reflects the difference as it is usually called “nikomi Hambaagu/煮込みハムバーグ”, meaning “stewed hamburger”
Below is the basic recipe, or more aptly said, the way to go about iit. I only explained the ingredients and the method. I purposedly omitted to cite the proportions and weights as this is where all individual “secrets” reside. Do experiment!

INGREDIENTS:

-Panko/Bredacrumbs
-Milk
-Minced meat: Pork or beef, or if you are Japanese a mixture of both
-Finely chopped onion
-Egg (s)
-Pressed tofu (take out as much water as possible)
-Thyme (powder)
-Nutmeg (powder)
-Salt
-Pepper

Sauce:
-Red wine
-Water
-Chicken bouillon (powder/cube)
-Tomato paste
-Ketchup
-Worcestershire sauce
-Sugar ( only a little!)

Accompaniment:
-Shimeji mushrooms
-Onion

RECIPE:

-In a bowl imbibe panko with milk.

-Add minced meat, chopped onion, egg, tofu, thyme, nutmeg, salt, pepper. Mix well by hand. Fashion hamburgers between your palms. Press the middle to create a small “valley”. Fry hamburgers on a frypan over a medium fire covered with a lid. When juices come out of the hamburger inside the valley, it will be almost ready.

-Take the hamburgers out and preserve them between two hot plates. In the same frypan, flambe the red wine, then add water, chicken bouillon powder, tomato paste, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, a littke sugar. Mix and cook until the sauce has reached the state of your preference.

-Fry the onion and shimeji mushrooms in a separate frypan.
When 80% cooked add them to the sauce with the hamburgers and stew for a while.

-Serve with mashed potatoes and boiled greens!
