Burger Steak Recipe

You know you are a Filipino when you hear of “burger steak”, you think of Jollibee’s. I’ll be sharing with you this killer recipe that tastes pretty much the same as Jollibee’s, minus the preservatives and the long line, especially now that it’s the holiday season.



  • 1/2 kilo ground beef or pork
  • 1 onion, minced (more or less equivalent to 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • dash of salt and pepper


  • 1/2 of a small onion, minced
  • small can of button mushroom
  • 2.5 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 of a beef or pork cube
  • salt and pepper to taste (I personally didn’t add any more salt)



    1. Mix all the ingredients for the patty.
    2. Form the patties with the size of your hand. Yes, I have small hands. 🤣
    3. On a low-medium heat, melt butter and fry the patties for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until they’re cooked. Do not overcook them or they will be dry.


  1. Saute onions on low-medium heat.
  2. Once translucent, cook the mushrooms about a minute or two.
  3. Add in the flour and let it brown for a minute.
  4. Slowly add the water and the beef or pork cube.
  5. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the mixture has reduced to half.
  6. Once it is already thick, taste the gravy and season to taste if needed. Make sure to let the mixture thicken, otherwise it will taste like mushroom soup.

I know I say this in almost all of my recipes, but this was easy. The only meticulous part is the forming of patties. Yeah, I’m not the most patient of all. I’m glad that my brothers and niece liked this recipe as much as I did. I might make this again for New Year’s Eve! 😉

  1. YUM. That looks so good. I love hamburg steak and its similar dishes, so this is a recipe I should save for in the future, in the event I do feel like cooking XD Your brothers and niece are lucky to get this again for New Year’s Eve! Thanks for sharing this recipe :3

    1. YES! It’s definitely similar to hamburg steak, which I think uses Worcestershire sauce. This one is Filipino-y because it uses soy sauce (we use soy sauce in almost all of our savory dishes). Let me know when you try this recipe. Thank you, Tara. 😍

  2. How are you doing at the startup company? I’m getting nervous about it but my gut feeling tells me to be more yolo. Haha.

    The burger steak looks tasty and makes me want to try this recipe too!

  3. Hi sis! Thanks for dropping by my blog. Wish you are having a great holiday too!!
    Btw, my girls love Jollibee’s burger steak so much. Happy to find a recipe that doesn’t need an egg to make. Will try it soon 🙂
