- 650 g beef mince
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 4 T parsley, roughly chopped
- 65 ml Worcester sauce
- 3 bread slices, crusts removed
- 190 ml milk
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 T sunflower oil
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Combine the mince, onion, garlic, parsley and Worcester sauce in a mixing bowl.
Place the bread in another bowl and pour over the milk. Allow the bread to soak up the milk, then gently squeeze out any excess and add the soaked bread to the mince. Season and mix the ingredients together.
Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Mould the mince mixture into 6 equal-sized patties, brush with sunflower oil and cook for 1 minute, then turn over and cook the other side.
Finish the patties in the oven for 3 minutes, taking care not to overcook them.
Cook’s note: This burger recipe works just as well when cooked on the braai over medium-hot coals. Do not use lean mince for this recipe as the patties will be dry. The higher the fat content, the juicier the patty.
