Umami Beef & Pork Burger

Carla DiTondo - Thursday, August 23, 2018

Let's make...

Umami Beef & Pork Burger


  • 1-1.5 lb Meatloaf Mix
  • 1 Egg (Optional, but highly suggested)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Miso (Can Substitute w/ Soy Sauce, however delicious, it wont have same flavor)
  • 1 Tbsp of your favorite Prepared Mustard Spread
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Hamburger Buns - We Suggest Potato or Brioche
  • Your Favorite Toppings... Sliced or Caramelized Onion, Sliced Jersey Tomato, Fresh Jersey Lettuce, Ketchup, Mustard, Mayo, American Cheese, whatever you please :)'


  • In a bowl, combine the meatloaf mix with mustard, egg (optional) Worcestershire sauce, miso, garlic powder and onion powder - Mix, with your hands or standing mixer.
  • Take approximately 1/2-3/4 cup of meat and form into patties.

>If you decide to make thin patties - Poke a hole in the middle so that the burger keeps it shape and doesn’t curl up during the cooking process.
>Use small pieces of parchment paper between the burgers to stack them up until you ready to cook them.

  • Let the patties sit for 30 minutes
  • In a cast iron pan, set the stove to medium heat and add a bit of oil. Wait until the pan is very hot.
  • Add in the burger and let it sear for 1-2 minutes. Don’t touch it or flip it!
  • Add 1/4 cup of water to the pan and quickly put a lid over it and let it steam. (Careful, the steam is hot!) Let it cook for about 1 minute, or until the water has evaporated away
  • Remove the lid and flip the burger and let it cook for another 2 minutes to brown the other side.
  • At this point, if you are adding cheese to your burger put it on now and put the lid over it for another 30 seconds or until the cheese has melted
  • Serve it on a bun and some toppings and enjoy!!
