Mos Burger (Copycat Recipe)
- 1/4 pound ground pork
- 1 carrot, diced
- 1/4 onion, diced
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1 can crushed tomatoes
- 1 tbsp chicken powder
- salt & pepper to taste
- olive oil
- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/2 diced oninon soaked in hot water
- 2 hamburger buns
- kewpie mayonnaise
- 2 thick slices of tomato
Add olive oil to the pan and heat. Add celery, onion, and carrot. Salt and pepper to taste and saute until soft (10 minutes)
Next add the chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, and chicken powder. Bring to a boil
Using a hand blender or regular blender, blend the mixture until fairly smooth.
In a separate pan, brown the ground pork until no longer pink. When finished, add it to the sauce mixture. Put the sauce mixture on low heat while making the patties (make sure to stir occasionally)
Season the two types of meat and mix the ground pork and beef together well
Shape into patties and cook the patties in the pan to your desired doneness
Lightly toast the burger buns and then place the patty directly from the pan onto the bun.
Top with kewpie mayo, onions, and then 2 tbsps or so of the meat sauce. Finish it off with the thickly sliced tomato!
When is Mos Burger coming to Los Angeles or the United States! I've been asking this very question for the longest time. Why has this not happened yet?? Will it ever happen?
I first discovered Mos Burger when my old band was touring in Tokyo and I fell in love. Why is there not a burger like this in the States with meat sauce?
To be honest, I actually discovered that Mos Burger is in the LAX International Terminal, but I never happen to be hungry when I'm flying out of the country. Also, I'm not interested in eating before I get on a flight when I know that dinner will be served shortly after takeoff.
I've got a great little copycat Mos Burger recipe so that you can recreate the burger at home!
