Malaysian Style Hamburger


A few weeks ago, I posted an interesting Japanese style hot dog recipe from Vancouver. It was very well received by all my readers. So, I thought I should share this localized recipe on another American all-time favorite. This is the Malaysian Style Hamburger! As I have not seen hamburgers being decked this way anywhere else, I am convinced this recipe is uniquely Malaysian and Singaporean. There are slight variations on how it's packaged; but, the key "extra" ingredients like the fried egg, cucumber, chili sauce are always present. In this recipe, the grilled meat patty is placed on a thinly fried omelette and topped with cheese, sweet chili sauce, mayonnaise, and seasoned with pepper. Simply wrap the patty with the egg when the cheese melts, and sandwich it on a toasted sesame bun with lettuce, cucumber slices, and some caramelized onions. This is a super good burger. I hope you will give it a try. Enjoy!


Malaysian Style Hamburger


Ingredients

Meat Patties
1 lb Ground Beef Sirloin
½ lb Ground Beef Chuck
½ tsp Sea Salt
¼ to ½ tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Caramelized Onion
1 Tbsp Peanut or Vegetable Oil
1 Large White or Yellow Onion, peeled, halved, and sliced
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
A few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce

Omelette
9 Large Eggs (1 ½ eggs = 1 Hamburger)
A Pinch of Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Peanut or Vegetable Oil

6 Slices of White Cheddar Cheese
Malaysian Style Chili Sauce (Maggi or Kimball brand)
Mayonnaise
6 Sesame Seed Hamburger Buns
Lettuce leaves, washed and dried
Cucumber, thinly sliced

Method

Combine the ground beef and season with sea salt, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Divide the meat into 6 equal patties. Shape the patties to about the size of the burger buns.

Caramelized Onion: In a medium skillet over moderate to high heat, sauté the onion with peanut oil until the onion is caramelized. Then drizzle with Worcestershire sauce and season lightly with sea salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, make the omelette. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sea salt and pepper, and lightly beat the eggs with a fork. Using a large non-stick pan, add about 1 12 tsp of oil over medium heat. Pour the egg mixtures onto the pan. Let the egg mixtures cook for about 2 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Turn, and cook the other side of the eggs.

Prepare the grill or a large cast iron pan over high heat. Grill the patties to desired doneness, turning only once. Set aside the cooked patties. Place an omelette on the pan, follow by grilled meat patty and top with cheese, sweet chili sauce, mayonnaise, and seasoned with pepper. When the cheese has melted, wrap the patty with the egg, and sandwich it on a toasted sesame bun with lettuce, cucumber slices, and some caramelized onions.
