Beef burger favourite

    30 min

    Very tasty burger with a lot of additions to make this a very tasty treat. Good quality steak mince is flavoured with a mixture of onion, garlic, fresh herbs and aromatic spices. A touch of sherry and cream makes these burgers incomparably juicy and moist.

    Makes: 8 burgers

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped or crushed
    • 1 small handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 small handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
    • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 2 dessertspoons sherry
    • 50ml double cream
    • 700g beef steak mince
    • 2 dessertspoons tomato sauce
    • 2 dessertspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 eggs

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Put olive oil in a pan and add chopped onion and garlic, and gently fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
    2. Add chopped parsley and coriander, sprigs of thyme and spices and fry for another 2 minutes.
    3. Add in sherry and double cream and stir well, cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes and then switch off (REMOVE SPRIGS OF THYME AT THIS POINT). Cool.
    4. Put mince in a bowl, add in tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and 2 eggs and mix well.
    5. Add the onion and garlic mix to the mince (make sure onion and garlic mix is cold before adding) and mix together well.
    6. Form mixture into burger shapes and place on baking tray under a grill. (I say a baking tray as if you put them directly onto the grate itself the mince mixture tends to fall through when you go to turn them the first time. Another alternative is to seal the mixture in a frying pan with a little olive oil and finish off in grill if desired. I personally prefer grilling.)
