Salisbury Steak in Pan Gravy
-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-
with the Family
The dish was an attempt at making Japanese hambagu, but I’ve been subsequently informed by Japanese colleagues that authentic hambagu requires a different sauce.
Amd so, I present my first go at Salisbury Steak, all from scratch, including the gravy. Regardless of national origin, it was very good.

This week, the Regional Office hosts the heads of our country offices, which we do twice a year.
At the afternoon reception, the typical array of unhealthy and unappetizing foods in the Philippine tradition (see most recently 9.062 Crap, As Ever).
In stark contrast, I attended several events this year that served wholesome and delicious foods, for example in Japan (see 10.068 Healthyish Diet ), Tunisia (see 10.172 Tajine with Shrimps), and New Zealand (see 10.290 Fish with Salsa Verde).
