Burger Steak or hamburger steak is a popular fast food menu in the Philippines. Flavorful burger patties (usually made from beef) are pan fried and topped with gravy and sliced button mushrooms.
Although this looks similar to Salisbury steak, there are some differences in the ingredients and composition which gives this dish the right to have a name of its own.
Even if this is not an authentic Filipino food, it has been well accepted and became part of the menu of most Filipinos. This might be attributed to the sheer marketing campaign of a well known fast food chain or simply because of its delicious taste.
Unlike others who serve mashed potato or macaroni and cheese, rice is the most popular side dish for this meal when you are in the Philippines.
