The Ultimate Hamburger

HamburgerIf you’re gonna braai a burger, why not do it properly. Here’s a fantastic everything on it, ultimate hamburger recipe. Looks great, tastes great and perfect with a glass of Rib Shack Red.

Ingredients:

  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 400 g lean beef mince
  • 400 g extra lean beef mince
  • 200 g pork mince
  • 2 large eggs, lightly whisked
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 15 ml wholegrain/ Dijon mustard
  • 15 ml coriander seeds, dry roasted and ground
  • 30 ml parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 2 slices of white bread, blitzed into crumbs in a food processor
  • 5 ml salt ground black pepper to taste

Method:

Mix all the ingredients together until just combined.
Shape the mixture into patties.
Place the patties in the fridge to rest for a couple of hours: the flavours will develop and it will be less likely to break while cooking.
Brush the patties with oil and braai until cooked through.

To assemble:

Halve bread or bread rolls of choice, brush with olive oil and toast lightly.
Arrange salad leaves and garnishes of your choice and patties on bottom halves of rolls.
Top with fried free-range egg and crispy bacon, a slab of cheddar garnished with pickled gherkin, or tomato and onion monkey gland sauce and deep fried onion rings.
