Double Beef Burger

I made burgers before, but this time I tried burger bun with my white bread recipe:


This one batch can make 4 buns.

For the beef patties,I used 300g ground beef. Actually I suggest you double the batch. Because I found this 300g ground beef can only make 4 patties. Since we are making double beef burger, so the beef needs to upsize.

1, To add flavor to the beef patties,  I chopped 4 cloves of garlic and added in. Actually the best way to mix beef and garlic is to chop them together. That’s what I learned from making dumpling fillings.

2, And also don’t forget to season beef with salt and pepper.

3, Divide ground beef into 4 portions. Make them into beef ball.

4, Heat a skillet, add in 1 tbsp oil. When oil is hot, Add beef ball in.

5, Use spatula to press beef balls into flat disc. Let it fry till the down side turns beautifully golden brown. And flip over to fry the other side.

6, After flipping, Place 1 piece cheese on each patty. Fry till cheese melts and bubbling.

7, Cut bun into halves, Brush it with sauce you like, Place beef patty on it. And top with another one.

8, I also saute some chopped onion with butter and salt. Place them over the beef.

9, And just put on the other half bun.

My husband is a big fan. 🙂


Bacon & Pineapple Burger

It just came to me when I was preparing for making burgers at home. Since bacon and pineapple are a good match on pizza, so I wondered how will it go if I put them in burger. It turned out not bad.

For the burger bun:


Pineapple slices are from canned ones. Drain them first.

Heat a pan on the stove. Fry bacon till crispy.

Then fry pineapple slices a bit.

Cut burger bun into halves. Place bacon slices on it. Then one pineapple slice. After that is cheese. And again bacon and pineapple slice.

You can serve it with salad and potato wedges.


My husband thought it’s very special. But he loved it after tried it.

Rou Jia Mo – Chinese Hamburger 

Rou Jia Mo is one of typical Shananxi food in Chinese cuisine. It’s also one of my most missing Chinese food. There are two parts of this dish: Mo (bun outside) and Rou (meat inside).

For the Mo part:

Flour 250g

Yeast 3.5 g

Baking powder 1.5 g

Warm water 135g

Salt 1.5g

Mix all the ingredients above into a dough. Place it in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or wet towel and let it rest for 1 hour.

For the Rou part:

Pour enough water in a pot. Also put pork belly in. When water boils, turn off stove and take pork out. Rinse and drain.

Place pork in a deep pot again. Pour in enough hot water. Add in 2 tsp light soy sauce, 1.5 tsp dark soy sauce, 2 tsp cooking wine, several sugar cubes, Chinese scallion, ginger slices, star anise, bayleaf  and 1 tsp salt.

First turn to high heat. When it boils, turn to low heat. And braise for 2 hours. So that pork will be really really soft and can melt in your mouth.
While pork is on stove, prepare Mo again.

Devide the dough into several small ones. Brush them with a little oil on the surface. Let them rest for 15 mins. Roll it with rolling pin into a long one. Then roll from one side to the other. Make it into a small dough ball again. Let them rest for another 10 mins. Then press them gently to become thinner.

Heat a pan on a stove with medium heat.

Place Mo into the pan.

Fry each side for 2-3 mins or till lightly golden brown.

Preheat oven to 150 degree C. And bake for 10 mins.

Then the Mo is ready.

Back to Rou again.

When the pork is cooked.

Chop them into a bit minced. Add in a little chopped spring onion or green chili. Sprinkle pork’s sauce.

The Rou part is also ready.

Cut Mo in the middle, not completely cut them open.

Stuff pork inside.

And the Rou Jia Mo is ready.

I must confess that mine Rou Jia Mo is not as good as the ones I had in China. But my husband still loves them.
Original recipe:


Black Sesame Round Bun And Mini-burger 

I promised my husband that I would make hamburger for him. And I tried the other day.
First, I baked black sesame round bun.


Bread flour around 160g

Plain flour around 40g

Sugar around 30g
Salt around 3 g
Yeast around 3 g
Add in milk around 60g and 3/4 of one egg.

1. When everything mixed well, add in black sesames. And keep kneading until the dough becomes less sticky.

2. Cut in 15g butter. Just knead, knead and knead. If you are really stressed out recently, it’s a good way to release your negetive energy outwardly. You can even punch the dough. When the butter is completely absorbed by the dough, you can stop and take a rest. Kneading really takes a while.

3. Cover the bowl with a wrap or wet towel until it expands to 1.5 or twice of its size.

4. Divide the dough into several little even-sized dough. Knead them to let the inside air out and make them in round shape.

5. Put the small dough on the baking pan and put the baking pan into the oven. Place a bowl of hot water under the baking pan. If the water gets cold, replace it with another bowl of hot water.

When the small dough expands again to 1.5 or twice of their size, they can be taken out.

6. Brush the dough with the rest 1/4 egg.

7. Preheat the oven with 180 degree C. And bake them for around 18 mins.

The bun part is done.

I cut the round bun into two parts. In the middle I put carriage, tomato slice, cheese and pork chop. And make them mini-hamburgers.

You can design your own burger with this round bun, and of course you can make it bigger if you want.

This round bun can also be good if you just spread jam in it.
