For this ultimate burger, I like to go with a steak mince with a nice fat content, like chuck. Get some thick flavourful streaky bacon and some fresh and crisp vegetables. You can't really go wrong, this is my ultimate and regardless of what my husband says, it is socially acceptable to eat two burgers in one sitting.
900g quality steak mince
2 rashers smoked streaky bacon, cooked and finely diced
1/3 large onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
1 tablespoon cider and horseradish mustard
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon brown sauce or steak sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
1 large egg

In a big mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix with hands to bind. Form into 8 burger patties.
Depending on the thickness of your burgers, you should barbecue them for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side over a medium-high heat for a medium burger. Move them around after a minute or two to stop them burning. Remove from the barbecue and keep warm for 5 minutes to allow the meat to rest.
