How to Prepare an Inviting Beef Burger at Home


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 of mature cheddar (optional)

4 white rolls

few round lettuce leaves, torn

1 beef tomato, sliced

ketchup, to serve (optional)


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.

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.

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).

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.
