- 14 ounces ground beef or pork
- 1/4 ounce dried hijiki
- 14 ounces onion
- 1 egg
- a little salt
- a little pepper
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons salad oil
- 3 tablespoons bread crumbs
- 1 cup water for soaking hijiki
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 4 tablespoons ketchup
- 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Soak the dried hijiki in the 1 cup of water in a bowl for 30 minutes. Remove and drain. Squeeze out any excess water with your hands.
Chop the onion. Heat 1 tablespoon of the salad oil in a frying pan over a medium flame and sear the onion. After it becomes clear, remove from the heat and cool for more than 20 minutes.
Beat the egg and mix with the ground meat, hijiki, seared onion, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a big bowl. Form into 4 balls and flatten into patties.
Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the frying pan over a medium flame and add the patties. Cover and sear the patties for a couple of minutes.
After they change color, sear the opposite side for a couple of minutes.
To make the sauce, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in a dish.
Place the hamburger steak patties on servings plates and pour the sauce over the top.
Because hijiki is added into the patties, this hamburger steak has a lighter and simpler taste than regular hamburgers. Hijiki contains a lot of dietary fiber and iron, so this hamburger steak is also very healthy.
