Japanese Curry Pork Fillet Burger (Irresistible Quick Lunch)

Curry Pork Fillet Burger 咖喱豬柳漢01

A few days ago, I went to a Chinese restaurant and saw their chef’s recommended menu posted on their wall. The words of “Curry Pork Fillet Burger” really caught my eyes. It sounds great. What a lovely combination of curry and burger! However, I guess 6 AU dollars might be too much for a burger. Why can’t I try to make some to feed my family?

Coincidently, some pork scotch fillets were on special offer at the nearby supermarket. Well, it’s a good time to have a go for it.

Serves 4

  • 4 pork scotch fillets (about 300 gm)
  • 1 small cube S&B Golden Curry
  • 1 onion, shredded
  • lettuce, to taste
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 hamburger bread rolls

  1. Rinse and dry pork fillets. Tenderize pork fillets with the back of a chopper. Mix well with seasoning mixture. Leave for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat pan on medium high heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil to fry the pork until both sides are lightly brown. Cover pan and cook the pork until done. Uncover pan, continue to fry the pork until sauce dry. Dish up.
  3. When frying the pork, use another pan to sauté shredded onion till brown. Add a bit of hot water and a curry cube. Stir well until curry dissolves thoroughly. In the meantime, if the sauce is too thick, you can add more hot water to your preferred consistency.
  4. Cut each bread roll into halves. Melt some butter to taste, on a heated pan, put in the bread rolls until they are warm and lightly brown. Place lettuce, tomato, pork fillet and generously pour curry sauce over the pork fillet. Done!

  • All I spent was only under 6 AU dollars that fed my whole family of four. It’s really a good try.


  1. That looks like a great idea. Now I just need to find a way to bento-ize your recipe. I shall try it sometime and let you know. YUM~

  2. Hi,

    This looks like a good lunch box idea for my girls, doable even for my very limited cooking ability. Will try it out and let you know the outcome.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. To Bentoist:
    Yeah, it's great for lunch! Better than McDonald's. :P

    To skinnymum:
    Hope you and your girls would like it~
    Thanks for dropping by! >o<

  4. wow looks very good and filing. I'm glad I came by your site. Your recipes look really palatable!

  5. Looks wonderful. I have never seen pork scotch fillets where I live. Are they sometimes call other cuts? Curious because I really want to try this recipe.

  6. To jaymeeliz:

    To Jason:
    Pork scotch fillets actually are collar butt or neck. They can be used as Pan Fry or Stir Fry.

  7. Hi Christine, I actually have used chicken breasts and chicken thighs to make this sandwich before, it is just as delicious. Also, I used the tangzhong bread (from http://en.christinesrecipes.com/2010/03/japanese-style-bacon-and-cheese-bread.html#.UOiNfYb4LxM) and used this meat part of the dish for the filling to make curry baked buns. I just love that everything is so versatile. I've made various dishes between the recipes in your book, this website, or a combination of them, and they've all be excellent. Thank you so much for these resources for me to explore, experiment with, and revisit all my favorite childhood foods from HK! If it wasn't for me stumbling upon your book at the Hong Kong airport, I wouldn't have even known your existence!

    1. Wonderful !
      Glad that you loved my recipes and made various delicious dishes from my blog and cookbook. Very encouraging!
