- 1 small onion, diced
- 500g good-quality beef mince
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4 burger buns
Tip 400g ground beef into a bowl with 1 small chopped onion and 1 egg, then mix.
Split the mixture into four parts. Casually wet your hands. Sensibly roll the mixture into balls.
Set in the palm of your hand and softly crush down into pasties. Make sure all the burgers are the same depth so that they will cook evenly.
Put on a plate, cover with stick film, and leave in the fridge to fixed up.
Heat the grill to medium-hot. Casually skirmish one side of each burger with vegetable oil.
Place the burgers, oil-side down, on the grill. Cook for 5 mins until the meat is well-cooked. Don’t move them about or they may cane.
Oil the other side, then turn over using forceps. Don’t press down on the meat, as that will squash out the juices.
Cook for 5 mins more for medium.
Take the burgers off the grill. Leave to break on a plate so that all the saps can relax inside.
slice four burger buns in half. Place, cut-side down, on the grill, and toast for 1 min until they are casually overdone. Place a burger inside each bun, then top with your choice of garnish.
