Yap! Filipino style hamburger. This western food has invaded the Filipino palate. It is unstoppable. It is irresistible. But…. of course, we give this western food a twist to fit our taste buds. That is why Jollibee is all over the world. Wherever there are Filipinos, Jollibee is there.
You may prepare a lot of patties in your freezer for future use. You no longer have to go out for a hamburger or buy ulamburger for your kids’ baon to school and your baon to work. Here’s the recipe.
Hamburger (Jollibee-style) Recipe
- 1 Pound ground angus beef
- 10 Small hamburger buns
- 10 teaspoons chopped onion
- 5 tsp chopped garlic (optional)
- Hamburger Seasoning
- 1 Tablespoons salt
- 1 Tablespoons Accent (msg)
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powderAdd on: Mustard, Ketchup, cheese, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, lettuce ….and ….. sheets of waxed paper
- First, mix all seasonings well and add to your ground beef. Add chopped onions. Mix well.
- Divide 1 lb of beef into 10 equal sized balls. Form a patty about 4 inches in diameter and1/4 inch thick.
- You may press the beef balls between 2 sheets of waxed paper to form the patty. Now freeze the patties for at least an hour. Freezing keeps them from falling apart when you cook them (grilled or fried).
- Toast your burger buns lightly before serving. Of course you may add onion rings, tomatoes (sliced thinly crosswise), lettuce, mustard, ketchup, cheese, hot sauce… just do it. Then pair your burger with a big glass of icy pineapple juice.
- You may add some grated carrots, sayote or any favorite vegies (like chopped malonggay leaves) for added value. We sometimes add some ground pork (30% proportion) to make the burger patties juicier.
