"This is a popular Japanese dish, sort of a really tasty take on salisbury steak. Its quick, cheap, easy and sooo good. Panko bread crumbs are key here.."
Serving Size: 1 (206 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Made these but also added Hoisin and a couple of drops of sesame oil to the sauce, also made the paddies smaller and seasoned with salt, pepper and parmeson cheese before cooking to give it a crustier finish. Finished off with a squirt of japanese mayo they took me back to my tokyo days, very similar to Gold Rush family restaurant!<br/><br/>Came out very nice (see photo)"
"Wonderful! And so easy...I did add a little hoisen sauce as others did....great fast weeknight recipe..."
"It's a keepah! I also added some Hoisin to the sauce (good idea) and because I had a part of a green pepper, I added that as well by mincing and sautéing with the onion."
"A simple meal that's budget friendly. This is a really great recipe! It was delish!"
"really simple and tasty recipe!"
"Very yummy and easy to whip up. I love the sauce that goes with it."
"My girlfriend made this for me tonight and it was very simple and very good! We didn't have onions, but it worked out fine without. We served it with rice. So GOOD. (She didn't care for the sauce so much, but I thought it was perfect.)"
"These were surprisingly good. I didn't really expect to like them as much as I did. My sisters concur! This is also my first recipe using panko. It's not readily available where I live. I have to make sure to get it when I go to the largest city for my monthly shopping so we can have this whenever we want. Thnx, Meghan, for posting."
"Looking at the ingredient list for this recipe, I thought they sounded quite good. But I must say, they were AWESOME. The sauce made the dish. I doubled it and still would have liked more. Who would have thought the combo of 2 simple ingredients could taste so good. Super simple, definite keeper."
"We love these. It's our new favorite hamburger."
"Soooooo goooood! I don't think I will make American meatloaf ever again. My husband added some Teriyaki sauce and Hoysin to the sauce to give it a little bit of a sweet spice. Give it a try."
"This was good and easy to make. I made this for freezer tag. I followed the recipe as written except I used minced onion instead of real onion. For freezer tag I made the directions up to step four. Once I had the mixture made I put it in a freezer bag and froze. When I was ready to make, I pulled the frozen bag of meat and let it thaw in the fridge. I followed the rest of the directions from there. I did double the sauce and everyone liked it but hubby and my oldest thought the sauce was too bitey. The liked these better with just ketchup on them."
"Excellent and easy to make dish! I will double the sauce next time as everyone wanted more. I've been making a Salisbury Steak recipe every few weeks for my family that is a bit more time consuming before this. To my delight, my husband and mother said they prefer this recipe instead of the the typical Salisbury Steak. I will make this instead. Thank you for an easy, quick alternative to the typical Salisbury Steak!!"
"This was very good! My whole family enjoyed it. I made it as directed, and it came out wonderful. I will definatley be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"We will definitely make this one again. Added a little more milk, but that was all the change that we made. Thank you for posting."
"This recipe is just like the ones we had in Japan! Thanks for the recipe!"
"I've seen this recipe on other sites, but never tried it. I was looking to use up a pound of 96% lean ground beef tonight and I'm so glad I found this recipe here so I could rate it - it's really great! I followed it exactly, except I used minced scallion instead of onion and added chicken broth to the pan instead of hot water. The burgers were moist and juicy and the sauce was delicious - next time, I'll double or triple it since my bf and his friend were practically licking the pan. I served these with stir fried cabbage (just a package of coleslaw mix wilted with a little sesame oil) and some leftover steamed white rice. A definite keeper!!"
"I was a little skeptic about "tossing" the meatballs back and forth, but they took shape well without packing the meat. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks! These are very tasty and the sauce was delicious. Served with a side of buttered Recipe #216441 #216441 and a salad, this was a yummy meal! I'll definitely make this again. Made for Cookbooks Tag. Thanks for sharing Meghan."
