Pork recipe-Kushiyaki Style Pork Hamburg with Wafu Salsa


Here’s one great idea to make handy Kushi yaki style Hamburg steak! Japanese love hamburg steak. I used to eat so many kinds when I was back in Japan. It usually comes with rather heavy sauce. This time I made very light healthy Wafu Salsa to enjoy hamburg steak. Since It comes on sticks, it can also become great finger food!

~ serves four to six ~
400g Ground pork
1/2 tsp Ginger paste

5~6 Cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/8 Onion, chopped
2~3 stalks Cilantro, chopped
