Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 10 Large
  • Mince Beef x 1000grams
  • Brown Onions chopped x 2 medium
  • Fresh Parsley finely chopped (curly leaf) x 1.5 full cups
  • Minced Garlic x 4 teaspoons
  • Worcestershire Sauce x 3 tablespoons
  • Tabasco Sauce x 3 teaspoons
  • Tomato Sauce (Ketchup) x 4 tablespoons - good quality one
  • Smoky Paprika x 2 teaspoons
  • Breadcrumbs x 1.25 cups
  • Large Eggs x 3 lightly whisked
  • Himalayan Salt x 1 teaspoon
  • Olive Oil - 12 x 1.5 second spray on each side of each burger just before cooking.
  1. Place all prepared ingredients into a large bowl
  2. Season with salt and pepper
  3. Mix with spoon or hands until well combined
  4. Divide the mixture into ten to twelve equal balls (depending upon how big you want them)
  5. Flatten them gently and shape into a pattie
  6. Place in fridge for 30 minutes before cooking to ensure they keep their shape.
  7. Then freeze raw or cook.
  8. To cook: spray each side with olive oil and place on a medium frying pan or BBQ grill until cooked through - usually about five minutes each side (will depend upon thickness though).
  9. FREEZING: Freeze them raw. These freeze raw beautifully and are easy to manage if you wrap each pattie individually in a freezer bag. I always have these frozen raw burgers in the freezer ready to defrost and throw on the BBQ for a perfectly yummy meal any time.
  10. SERVING SUGGESTION 1: Lightly toast the outsides of a hamburger bun. Smear fresh avocado on the bottom, add smoky chipotle tomato relish, add burger, add melted cheese, add thick tomato slices, add salt, add pickles, add spanish onion, add lettuce, add mayonnaise, place top of burger on bun and enjoy!
  11. SERVING SUGGESTION 2: Of course you can serve it in a bun with loads of stuff like pineapple, lettuce, onion, cheese, bacon, mayo and tomato. But for a healthier equally scrumptious version, serve the burger (no bun) with a salad of cos lettuce, spinach leaves, spanish (red/purple) onion, tomato slices, balsamic dressing, avocado, tomato and beetroot, sprinkling of tasty cheese - delicious and very satisfying. If I don't have avocado, I use boiled eggs instead and sometimes add a ring of pineapple.
I use a mini food processor to finely chop my parsley
