Cut the potatoes into same-sized irregular wedges (ran-giri) and finely chop the onion (mijin-giri).
In a pot, cover the potato wedges with water, cook until tender, and drain in a colander. Return the potato wedges to the pot and gently shake over heat to remove any remaining moisture. Coarsely mash the potato.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the onion and sauté until the onion is soft. Add the ground beef and season with the salt and pepper and the nutmeg. Add the onion mixture to the (2) potato and mix. Divide the mixture into four portions and shape each into an oval patty.
|technique||Leave a few lumps when you mash the potato.|
