Sweet chilli burgers

    25 min

    The sweet chilli sauce in this recipe isn't overpowering but gives a subtle flavour. If a hotter flavour is required, I like to add crushed chilli flakes for a kick.

    1. Heat the oil in a small pan and cook the onion for about 5 minutes until soft. Remove from the pan, drain off any oil on some kitchen roll, and allow onion to cool.
    2. Mix together the mince, garlic, cumin, coriander, tomato puree, chilli sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, mixed herbs, egg and crushed chilli flakes in a bowl. Stir in the onions and sprinkle over some salt and pepper.
    3. Shape the mixture into eight burgers and chill for 10 minutes.
    4. Fry, grill or barbecue the burgers for roughly 5 minutes each side, depending on taste.

    I did these last night and they tasted amazing but they were a bit sloppy and fell apart, I would reduce the wet ingredients next time, but there will be a next time!  -  04 Sep 2011


    We all loved these, didn't change a thing, but the second time I made it I doubled all the seasonings! Great in a bun served with a chilli salsa - will be making lots this summer  -  14 Apr 2010


    Tonight will be the fourth time I've made this recipe. It's now officially a family favourite. Very tasty indeed  -  30 Jan 2013
