How To Make Wafu Hamburg Steak - Japanese Style Salisbury Steak

       I always wanted to have hamburg steak, Japanese style Salisbury steak, for long time. Finally, I cooked this wafu hamburg steak for the first time in years last weekend! As I mentioned in my previous entry, My Top 15 Must Eat Foods in Japan, a Japanese hamburg steak (ハンバーグ) is one of my favorite Japanese foods.There are many kinds of hamburg steaks such as wafu (和風) and youfu (洋風). This time, I made wafu hamburg steaks which had garlic soy sauce flavor. It was so delicious! I wish I could eat it everyday!  By the way, wafu means Japanese style in Japanese. Wa (和) means Japanese or Japan, and fu (風) means style.  For instance, wafu pasta (和風パスタ) is a Japanese style pasta dish which is usually made of Japanese ingredients such as soy sauce and nori. Wafu shokki (和風食器) is traditional Japanese porcelain wares. Anyway, I'm going to share how to make wafu hamburg steaks with you. :)
