Burger Steak (that’s what we call it in Philippines) is made out of minced meat shaped to mimic steak drenched in a brown gravy commonly topped with mushroom
- 600g beef mince
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1 large eggs
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp sesame oil (Optional, I love the flavour this gives)
- 2 cups button mushrooms, sliced (In Philippines we use canned mushrooms)
- 4 cups drippings from roast meat, fat removed (You can also use beef stock but you have to triple the amount and reduce to have its volume)
- 4 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp onion powder
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- freshly ground black pepper
- In a bowl beat the eggs then add beef mince, bread crumbs, onion and sesame oil, then mix well and form into burger patties
- In a pan shallow fry the patties until cooked. Place in a plate and set aside.
- Using the same pan, quickly fry the mushrooms and set aside.
- Add the butter in the same pan and flour, mix well until it forms a roux.
- Add the drippings and whisk until free of lumps, then add onion powder, soy sauce and cooked mushrooms.
- Season with salt then pour over the cooked hamburger patties.
