Beef Burgersby John Wards
|Preperation time: 10-15 Minutes
Cooking time: 10-25 Minutes
|1) Pack of Mince (450-500 Grams)
2) One egg
3) One onion
4) 75 Grams of bread crumbs
5) Clove of garlic
6) Table spoon of worcestershire sauce
7) Tea spoon of tabasco sauce, less or more depending on your taste!
8) Salt & Pepper to taste
|Get a large mixing bowl and put in the Mince,
Bread Crumbs, Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco Sauce and salt and
Grate onion with a coarse grater (Usually the side that you never use for cheese!) Place this in the bowl.
Crush the garlic and add this to bowl.
Lightly beat egg and add 1/2 - 3/4 to bowl, expermient with this until your happy. I find 3/4 is better but have a play. A full or larger egg might make the mixture too wet, if its too wet don't fret just add some more bread crumbs to soak up the moisture.
Now to the fun bit!
You need to squish and squeeze the mixture with your hands until everything is mixed well, make sure you turn the mixture over a few times too so that you don't miss things at the bottom of the bowl.
Now this mixture can make 4 large burgers, or 8-10 small burgers.
Flour a worktop and take out your portion size from the mixture, now make a nice round burger with your hands...very simple...roll up a ball and then squish it down.
The burgers need to chill covered in a fridge for at least 30 minutes, I usually make them Mid-afternoon so they get a good few hours to settle.
You need a medium heat on your frying pan and just a light covering of oil to save sticking.
If you've done 4 burgers with this mixture they will need about 10 minutes per side, bear in mind I like my outside of my burgers crispy! I find timing for such things is a bit of a dark act so I usually cut a burger open when I think things are done to help.
The thinner burgers should take half the amount of time to cook.
Serve in Buns with lots of Tomato sauce!
