Eleanor Moores World famous Char Burgers
1lb lean ground beef
1 egg
1/4 cup Club shoyu (not low sodium)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup minced green onion
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1 T sesame oil
2 T toasted sesame seeds
dash black pepper
8 5“ hamburger buns
kim chee or lettuce & tomatomix egg and spices together and mix thoroughly.  On waxed paper or a plate divide meat mixture into 8 portions appox 1/4 c each.  Divide each in half forming 16 portions.  Spread each of the 16 buns halves with one portion of meat. Be very sure to completly cover the bun so the edges dont burn. Put a small piece foil between top and bottom half of the burger so the meat won’t stick together prior to cooking. Grill or fry meat side down.  The meat cooks quickly and the bun warms while the meat is cooking. Finish by placing kim chee or lettuce & tomato between the two halves.  Slam bun shut and devour.  These can be made up in advance and frozen.

Mrs Moore lived in Hilo and attended the Hilo United Methodist Church so was a family friend for many years. Whenever a special church or family event came up, there were charburgers, but while she was alive, the recipe was a secret. After she died in the 90’s it was given to the world by her son Billy’s kids. Very unique in that the meat is applied to the bun raw, then cooked. This is the original recipe word for word and as far as I know, those are Eleanor’s words.
