Japanese Hamburger Steak

  • Author: Michelle
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This Japanese Hamburger Steak is a sweet, savoy, and simple one-pan meal. It’s paleo and can be made whole30 and AIP-friendly.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground pork (sub all ground beef)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup compliant ketchup (use sugar free for whole30, I used this for AIP. See blog post above for more options)
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar (sub 2 tsp apple cider vinegar)


  1. Using a medium bowl, combine the ground meat, coconut flour, and seasonings and mix well. Form into 4 burgers and set aside.
  2. Heat the avocado oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the burgers, being careful to not overcrowd the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, flipping often until fully cooked through. Set aside and drain any excess fat from the pan.
  3. Combine the coconut aminos, ketchup and vinegar in a small bowl and mix well.
  4. Pour the sauce mixture into the pan along with the burgers. Coat the burgers in the sauce and cook for another minute.
  5. Serve with a side of vegetables such as cauliflower rice and broccoli.
