Best Beef Burgers

    55 minutes

    Tasty, rustic, moist and delicious! If you grate the onion, this mix makes awesome meatballs and also makes a good meatloaf.

    Makes: 10 Large Patties

    • 1kg beef mince (must have some fat in it)
    • 1 large brown onion
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 tsp oregano
    • 1 tsp basil
    • 1 tsp hot chilli powder
    • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
    • 1/2 tsp garam masala
    • 1/4 tsp coriander powder
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
    • 7 tablespoons (140ml) tomato sauce
    • 6 drops Tabasco sauce
    • 3 cloves garlic
    • salt and pepper (to taste)
    • 2 cups breadcrumbs (approx)

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. You can either dice or grate the onion depending on how rustic you like your burgers (I just dice them).
    2. Add the egg, spices, sauces, herbs, garlic, salt and pepper to the onion and mix well.
    3. Add this mixture to the beef mince and mix well -use your hands.., it's messy but it works the best.
    4. Slowly add the breadcrumbs until you have reached the desired texture - the mix should be moist but not stick you your hands.
    5. Place the mix in the fridge for 1/2 an hour to make it easier to mould the burgers (can be in the fridge overnight).
    6. Grab a small handfull at a time and make a ball. Flatten in your hand before placing on a hot BBQ plate
    7. Cook around 5 minutes per side or till done to your liking.


    Add more chilli if you like it spicy, this is a mild burger. Trust me.., it's better to make it exactly as above first and then add your own tweaks to evolve it to your perfect recipe

    Make into Meatloaf

    For the best meatloaf ever.., just make the mix into a loaf, generously cover with tomato sauce and bake in a 200 degree oven for 45 mins. Absolutely delicious!

    Great recipe we didn't have tabasco so next time we will use this. I made the burgers with my two boys Adam 10 and Scott 9 this is what they said....A really nicely spicy recipe (Scott) An all time yummy favourite. (Adam). We had these burgers in homemade rosemary and olive rolls and we had a homemade orange and rasberry relish with them (relish made by Scott).  -  20 Apr 2018


    Moist, flavoursome, and delicious. I ran out of tomato sauce so I just added a tablespoon of tomato paste. My fault. Four large burgers and enough for a meatloaf. How economical is that? Thank You, it's a keeper!  -  29 Feb 2016
