I love burgers but I hate getting the frozen ones or ready made ones as they are alway so fatty and you can never be too sure what kind of meat has been used. So I decided to make some beef burgers for the family using all fresh ingredients, adjusting my recipe for Turkish köftes, I made a simple and easy to do beef burger recipe. This is so quick and easy to make when you haven’t got a lot of time to make dinner, I have used this recipe a few times and it has always been a hit with my family.
This one is definitely one for meat lovers and perfect for the kids or even entertaining guests..
(makes around 7 small burgers )
Beef Mince 5%fat, 500grams
Handful Parsley, finely chopped
1 small Onion, diced small
Ground Pink Himalayan Salt, to season
Ground Black Pepper, to season
Add all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix together well using your hands
Season well with salt and pepper and mix again until it is all combined well together
On a meat chopping board create the burgers at the size you want, using your hands, start the burger in a ball and on the board flatten with your palm (don’t make them too thick as they wont cook evenly)
In a large frying pan on a medium heat, add a splash of olive oil
Add the burgers (you may have to do batches) and cook for around 4 minutes on each side, a little longer for a well done burger (especially for the children)
Serve with wholemeal rolls or sesame seed burger rolls, with salad, cheese and some tomato sauce
I get my 4 year old to build her own burger and she loves it!
Don’t forget to make some potato or sweet potato chips and enjoy!
