Hambāgu Burger

Hambāgu Burger1

No, I didn’t make a spelling mistake. It is “Hambāgu”. Hambāgu is Japanese hamburger steak. It is like a Salisbury steak, but Hambāgu has onion and garlic mixed in with the meat. And the most special part has to be the tangy and sweet red wine sauce. Last year, I tried Nami’s (Just One Cookbook) Hambāgu recipe. Bryan and I absolutely love it, especially that sauce. One day, when we were enjoying burgers for dinner, Bryan said, “Nomm… This is good, but I think it will be even better with the Hambāgu’s sauce.” I can’t agree more. That is how this recipe came together.

For this Hambāgu burger, I used a mild cheese, Provolone, so it won’t be overpowering. The beef patty was juicy and moist. The buns were toasted and slightly sweet, which pair so well with that tangy red wine glaze. Everything came together nicely. It was a great burger! We served the burgers along with the Portobello mushroom fries. It was a satisfying meal. Hope you will try this burger, but don’t forget the napkins. It can get messy!

Beef Short Ribs with Red Wine

Winter is almost here. In the cold weather, a good pot of beef short ribs just warms my heart. I have tried a few different short ribs recipes. This one has to be the best. The flavors were intense and came in layers. There were also many vegetables. If you eat this with rice, this recipe is a one-pot meal. For the leftover, those are perfect for lunch the next day. I can’t tell you how good this is. Try this yourself! I am going to make this again very soon!
