How to Make Italian Hamburg Steak with Okara, Japanese Style Salisbury Steak

     As I mentioned in my yesterday's entry, I purchased okara, tofu byproduct, at Japanese supermarket. I cooked stewed Italian hamburg steak with okara last week. Even though its name is Italian hamburg steak, it's not Italian foods. Japan often names "Italian" or "Naporitan" for Japanese dishes made of tomato and cheese. :) Probably, I should call "Japanese stewed okara hamburg steak with tomato and cheese sauce" for this Japanese dish.

      This was okara I purchased at Japanese supermarket. Usually, okara spoils pretty quickly. You can keep okara fresh in refrigerator up to 1 to 3 days. When you purchase okara, you should use it up as soon as possible, or you can store it in freezer for two to three months. When I came back from Japanese supermarket, I divided okara into several (50g or 100g each) and warped them with plastic wrap. Then, store them in freezer.

     By using okara for hamburg steak, it's healthier than ordinarily one. Because okara is made of soy beans, it is rich in protein and fiber. :) However, if you use only okara as a substitute for beef, it doesn't taste like meat, so I use okara only third part of beef. Anyway, I'm going to share how to make this okara hamburg steak with you.
