I called this dish Steak Burger Saos jamur, means beef burger with mushroom sauce. Well, it’s not originally Indonesian dish, but more adapted from western cuisine. It happened that I had ground beef meat that need to use before expiration date. Looking for something simple yet taste good for lunch, I came up with idea to make it as burger, and instead of bread, I added french frites and sweet mushroom sauce as condiment.
The recipe is similar to ‘Bistik Daging‘, only I did some adjustment with the ingredients.
So, if you want to try, here’s the recipe
250 g beef ground meat
50 g breadcrumb
1/2 medium onion, thinly chopped (for better result, you can use 1 tablespoon onion powder)
1 medium egg
1/4 teaspoon pepper powder
1/2 teaspoon beef bouillion powder or salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
1 tablespoon of butter
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 clove of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon of sweet thick soy sauce (Indonesian kecap manis)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/4 teaspoon of pepper powder
1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch/maize flour, mix with a little of water. As substitute, you can also use tapioca flour.
Carrot, cleaned and cut into small sizes
Brocolli or Couliflower
French frites, fried
1. Take a bowl, put all the ingredients for making burger, then gently mix together. Shape the meat into burgers. Set aside.
2. Sauce : using butter, saute the onion and garlic for few minutes. Add the mushroom, then pour the broth or water. Then add the rest of ingredients (except the flour). Cook for about 10 minutes. In the end, add the mixture of cornstarch (maize flour) and water to make the sauce thicken.
3. Using electric grill, place the burgers for couple of minutes until they are cooked. If you don’t have the grill, you can also use cast iron skillet or stove-grill pan.
4. Serve with french fries, cooked vegetables and mushroom sauce.
