Beef Burgers, Bread Rolls and Slaw

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and safe. Today’s recipe is entirely homemade and it was so much fun to make. It also makes a change from my recent vegetarian recipes.

First I marinated the minced beef so that all of the spices would soak in and give the burgers loads of flavour, then I made the bread rolls and left them to cool down for later and lastly was the slaw. This slaw recipe actually contains no mayo which I thought was really cool and added great texture to the burger, I made it this way to use up some of the leftover vegetables we had in the fridge and because I am not a massive mayo fan. I also made sweet potato chips that were cooked in the oven with a little oil, salt and paprika.

The weather has been really sunny in the UK recently, so it would be nice to set everything out on a table and eat outside, everyone can tuck in and enjoy!

Best Beef Burgers

This recipe is a classic burger which is pretty standard and tastes so delicious with great flavour, literally the best I’ve ever tasted 😀 This recipe will work well on a barbecue too but I just baked these in the oven.

Makes 8

Ingredients
350g minced beef
Chilli powder
Salt
Curry powder
¼ small onion
1 egg
50g plain flour
Burger buns
Lettuce, washed and shredded
Tomato sauce

Method
1. Firstly we need to marinade the meat for 3 hours, so it’s full of flavour. Take the minced beef out of the packaging and place into a container which has a lid.

2. Next add as much spices (salt, chilli powder, curry powder) as you want using a spoon to mix everything together. Place in the fridge.

3. Now you can set the oven to gas mark 4 and get a tray ready. Take the meat from the fridge and add the breadcrumbs, egg and flour.

4. Put some gloves on now and mix all of the ingredients together, then shape into even sized burgers and place on the tray.

5. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes and turn over after 20 minutes. In the meantime prepare your toppings and cut the burger buns in half.

6. Take the tray from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before adding to the burger so you don’t get soggy lettuce.
