Hamburger Steak is a very popular western style dish in Japan, and it is often made at home or served at many restaurants. While regular hamburger steak is made from ground pork and beef, Tofu Hamburger Steak is made from a mixture of Tofu and ground meat. Although Tofu Hamburger Steak has fewer calories and a little softer texture, it tastes meaty enough for meat lovers.
Tofu Hamburger Steak is much less greasy, and it goes with many different kinds of sauces. We made it with a Teriyaki-like sauce, but regular ketchup and Worcester sauce is also very good with it. Ponzu Sauce and grated Daikon radish is a popular sauce, too.
We used ground beef here, but it can be replaced with pork or chicken. Tofu Hamburger Steak is a healthier choice for your everyday dinner but still tastes great. It is perfect for people who are watching calories, but also tastes so good everyone can enjoy it.
