Ever the optimist, these are fantastic on the barbie but equally great under the grill, so whether you are sitting and watching the rain running down the windows or basking in the sun my burger will still put a smile of your face.

  • Just mix well together really well.
  • Good tip season well with salt and pepper at the last moment.
  • Mould into patties, or use a burger press then grill fry or BBQ.
  • Triple layer with the above and onion rings, see recipe below.

Phil's Tips

Remember the secrets of a good burger are:-

  • Use minced or ground as the American call it chuck steak, 8mm mincing plate, then mince again on a 5mm plate
  • Use meat that has a minimum of between 15% - 20% fat content.
  • Mince the meat twice, the mix together well, they will bind easier and the burger will hold its fat and moisture better.
