    These hamburger patties are just the thing for a summer barbecue. For a different taste add the vegemite.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1/2 kg beef mince
    • 1 egg
    • 1 finely diced onion
    • 1 cup (250ml) tomato sauce
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) barbecue sauce
    • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon vegemite (optional)
    • 1/4 cup (30g) plain flour, or as needed

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a medium bowl combine the mince, egg, tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce and onion. If you are using the vegemite throw it in too. Mix together using your hands until well mixed. Add only as much flour as necessary to keep it from being too runny.
    2. Heat a large frypan over medium heat. Form the burger mixture into 4 large patties. Place patties in the hot frypan and fry until no longer pink; about 7 minutes per side depending on thickness. Serve on buns or with gravy.

    I was dissapointed with this one... The hamburger mixture was very wet and the burgers did not hold up well on the grill. They were so soft and mushy they fell apart when trying to turn them. I like ketchup, but this was way too much as it overpowered the hamburgers. After grilling 2 hamburgers as a "test" and it did not work out very well, we added more flour and some cracker crumbs to the remaining meat mixture and tried to grill it. The second batch turned out better, but we ended up throwing away nearly all of it.  -  23 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Try coating the burgers in some beaten egg and then roll in breadcrumbs before grilling. Also, the Australian name for 'yeast extract spread' is Vegemite.  -  15 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I halved this recipe to get 2 nice burgers, but what I got was a sticky gooey mess that would not set no matter how I tried. I added flour, more flour and still more flour to no avail. These ended up down the garbage disposal and we had soup for dinner. This was a total waste of good ground beef. It was so bad, I couldn't even take a picture.  -  22 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
