Beef Burger served with Pasta Salad

Beef Burgers

Recipe submitted by Charlie on December 8th, 2008

You can't go past a good beef burger cooked on your bbq this summer. This is an easy recipe that will impress your crew. For the best result you want to use good quality beef mince.

Prep time:   10 minutes
Cook time:   8 minutes
Servings:   10 burgers

500g beef mince
1 teaspoon beef stock dissolved in 1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
1 egg, light beaten
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed

Add all ingredients into a bowl and then use your hands to make sure the mixture is well combined.

I like flatten out the mixture to about 1cm thick and then use a 12cm diameter bowl, upside down, to press out prefect circle beef patties. You can use baking paper or cling wrap between the patties to stack up so they don't stick to each other. Beef patties store well in your freezer too.

Make sure your patties aren't too thick otherwise they will be difficult to cook through properly on bbq. Also remember it has to go in a bun and with other burger additions and people need to fit their mouths around it. I find 1cm thick to be a good thickness.

Cook until cooked through...time depends on your bbq.

      Making them tonight but I add grated cheese to the mix. Family loved them and my little neph Aaron asks me to make them a few time this week so im making them tonight very good recipe indeed. They do get smaller in the pan once they are cooked thou so make them big.

      primo taste, preschoolers demo'd them for dinner, so i've prepared a whole lot to freeze and take camping on monday : ) ... i substituted tomato paste (no sauce) and a block of tofu instead of bread (to take out the starch)... thanks Charlie

      Will definately use this recipie again. However, I did add mixed herbs, a pinch of salt, sweet chilli sauce and half a cup of flour! Turned out amazing and could make them really thick too!

      Really really good, easy to make and even the fussy male family members loved them. Pepper is the secret ingredient! Made them twice more - by request

      They make mild-flavoured patties with good texture however lacking in seasoning and that something else that makes for an excellent burger. I would suggest adding salt and pepper, and if you like a bit of heat, try some jalapenos or a dash of chilli.

      They turned out ok, lacking a real punch of flavour though and a bit bland for my liking, I did use premium low fat lamb mince though which is probably half the problem as we all know the taste is usually in the fat content. Possibly would work with a few more herbs and spices and definetely needed some added salt, again possibly due to the mince I used.

      I'm overseas and needed a kiwi hamburger fix. I used this recipe with a few adjustments here and there(omitted the beef stock, added more seasoning) and the result was still great. My kids wolfed down the firsts and had seconds, something that hardly ever happens. Thanks!

      Great recipe, only thing different i did was add a bit of smokey babarcue seasoning and some mixed herbs but dont think it made much difference, will definately use this one again!

      This was the tastiest burger recipe I have ever made. I will continue to use this and pretend it's my own invention! really I will pass this on to my friends. The only thing I added was a splash of chinese honey marinade and teriyaki sauce which it probably didn't need but still tasted great. I have to say the extra water added as stock helped make it all stick together better than without. Thanks again
