- 2.82 oz Minced chicken
- 5.29 oz Firm tofu
- 0.5 Onion
- 0.5 Egg
- 1 tsp Miso
- 1 tsp Sake
- 1 tsp Mirin (sweet sake)
- 0.1 tsp Grated ginger
- 0.1 tsp Salt
- 0.1 tsp Pepper
- 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
- 3.53 oz Daikon Radish
- 2 Green perilla (shiso leaves/ooba)
- as needed Ponzu sauce
Wrap the tofu in a paper towel, place it on a heat-resistant plate, and heat it in the microwave at 600W for 1 minute and 30 seconds. This will drain excess water.
Mince the onions. Place in a heat-resistant dish and mix with half the amount of vegetable oil. Heat in the microwave at 600W for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Let cool.
Combine the tofu, onions, and minced chicken in a bowl. Mix well and knead by hand. Shape into two oval patties. Make a dent in the middle of each patty.
Heat the remaining vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add the burger patties and cook on medium for 3-4 minutes or until it turns brown. Flip the patties over, cover the frying pan with a lid and cook on low for 7-8 minutes.
Serve on a plate. Garnish with green perilla and grated radish. Sprinkle with ponzu soy sauce.
