Ingredients: (serves 2)

115g ground beef

115g ground pork

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

1/3 cup bread crumbs

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp vegetarian oyster sauce

¼ tsp coarsely ground black pepper

50g brown button mushroom (sliced)

6 shallots (sliced)

3 tbsp cooking oil

2 tbsp unsalted butter

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 cup water

1 beef stock cube

½ tbsp light soy sauce

1 tsp sake

3 cups cooked rice

2 sunny side up fried egg

1 tbsp chopped parsley

Preparation Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, add in ground beef, ground pork, finely chopped onion, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce and coarsely ground black pepper. Knead to combine, divide into 4 equal portions and shape into patties.
  2. Heat up a non-stick skillet on medium low heat with 3 tbsp of cooking oil. Saute the sliced shallot until crispy and golden brown. Remove and drained on paper towel to absorb the excessive oil.
  3. Use the remaining shallot oil to pan-fry the patties until golden brown. Remove, drained and set aside.
  4. Leave 1 tsp of shallot oil in the skillet, saute the sliced brown button mushroom until turn soft.
  5. Push the mushrooms to the sides of the pan and melt the unsalted butter in the centre along with the all-purpose flour. Fry the roux until medium brown.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in water, beef stock cube, light soy sauce and sake.
  7. Once the mixture is smooth and free of lumps, put it back to the stove and bring to a boil, cooking until the gravy is thick and nice.
  8. To serve:
  • Place a bed of rice on a serving platter, top with 2 pieces of beef patties and then sprinkle on ¼ portion of the fried shallots. Drizzle ½ portion of the mushroom gravy on top, sprinkle another ¼ portion of the fried shallots, top with a sunny side up fried egg and garnish with ½ tbsp of chopped parsley.
