  • 4 xsteak mince burger (preferably from your local butcher)
  • 4 x bun burgers
  • 1 large tomato (cut into thick slices)
  • Fresh salad leaves
  • Homemade tonkatsu sauce
  • 4 tbsp Tomato ketchup
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp sake or red wine
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce


  • STEP 1
    Put all the ingredients for the homemade tonkatsu sauce in a saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens to the same consistency as tomato ketchup and then set aside to cool.
  • STEP 2
    Cook the burgers to your liking on a BBQ, frying pan, grill or oven.
  • STEP 3
    Place the burger on the bun and dress with a little tonkatsu sauce, sliced tomato and salad leave
