Are you familiar with the dish called “hamburg steak”? It sounds like a traditional German dish, but this is a good example of a Japan-style western dish^^. I guess you know “hamburger” very well, but may not be sure about “hamburg steak”. It’s similar to Salisbury steak, patty, or meat loaf, but not exactly the same.
It is said that the origin of hamburg steak is “tartar steak” which was very popular in Hamburg, Germany in 18th century. Tartar steak is chopped fresh meat mixed with fresh onion, peppers, and many other spices. And in Japan, it evolved in its own way. Today, I would like introduce the recipe for oishii (delicious) hamburg steak from “Cooking with Dog” on YouTube.
