Kimiko’s Eggplant Hamburger Steaks

I am always looking for a recipe which I can add more vegetables to make healthier meals. Fortunately my kids love vegetables, so I am a lucky mom who never had problems feeding vegetables to them. Japanese hamburger steaks is one of their favorite dishes and I added some eggplant this time in meat patties.

What you needs;

4-6 servings

  • 600 g organic ground lean beef
  • 1 small onion about 100g
  • 1 Japanese eggplant about 150g
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons grated ginger
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Cooking or olive oil (divided)
  • Grated daikon radish
  • Grated ginger
  • Japanese mustard
  • Soy sauce

How to;

  1. Peel onion and chop finely and dice eggplant. In a medium frying pan, heat a tablespoon of cooking oil and sauté onion and eggplant till soft and onion is translucent about 10-15 minutes. Set aside and cool.
  2. In a large bowl, add beef, sautéed onion and eggplant, egg, grated ginger, salt and ground pepper and combine well.
  3. Wash hands. Put a little cooking oil on your hands and make 4-6 large oval shaped patties or 8-12 small ones.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a large frying pan and fry patties until they are nicely browned and cooked through.
  5. Serve with grated daikon radish and grated ginger with soy sauce or Japanese mustard and soy sauce.
