Hot Cook Recipe [How to Make Stewed Hamburg Steak] Meat is tender and sauce is excellent!


Taste Scoring
★★★★★  Cooking time: 60 minutes, Preparation: 20 minutes + Hot Cook: 40 minutes


I have learned that Hamburg Steaks taste better when they are simmered! I was afraid that stewing would make the meat hard, but the Hot Cook automatically simmers the meat on low heat, so the meat is tender, and the sauce is excellent! You can easily enjoy the restaurant-like taste at home.

I used the leftover demiglace sauce that I made in the Hot Cook and froze and cooked the sauce with the hamburg steak for 40 minutes.

I was amazed at how good it tasted!

I cooked the Stewed Hamburg Steak in two ways: one with the surface lightly cooked in a frying pan before simmering in the Hot Cook, and the other is without cooking in the pan.

As a result, both Hamburg Steaks were delicious, so I recommend cooking half of the hamburg steak in a frying pan and putting it in the inner pot, putting the other half in the inner pot without cooking, and simmering it together.
