Hamburger [American style]

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 x 500g pack British Beef Steak Mince 15% fat
  • 1 tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 slices mature Cheddar (optional)
  • 4 white rolls
  • few round lettuce leaves, torn
  • 1 beef tomato, sliced
  • ketchup, to serve (optional)

Preparations

    step 1

    Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened and starting to turn golden. Set aside.

    step 2

    In a bowl, combine the beef mince with the herbs and the egg. Season, add the onions and mix well. Using your hands, shape into 4 patties.

    step 3

    Cook the burgers on a preheated barbecue or griddle for 5-6 minutes on each side. While the second side is cooking, lay a slice of cheese on top to melt slightly (if using).

    step 4

    Meanwhile, lightly toast the cut-sides of the buns on the barbecue. Fill with the lettuce, burgers and tomato slices. Serve with ketchup, if you like.
