The Sumptuous Gourmet Burger

Ingredients HIDE SHOW

  • Patty:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 800g beef mince
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, ground into a paste
  • Spice blend:
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder
  • Garnish:
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • Gherkins
  • Red onions
  • Grilled Halloumi
  • Other:
  • 4-6 brioche burger buns

Cumin adds an exotic twist to beef mince that leaves you wanting more.

  1. Prepare your spice blend of paprika, cumin and chilli powder. For extra strong flavours use cumin seeds, toast them on a dry pan over high heat for two minutes and then grind them with a pestle & mortar. 
  2. In a frying pan heat the oil and add the finely chopped onions, cook until softened and slightly coloured.
  3. Add the ground garlic and spice blend, stir until all liquid has evaporated.
  4. Place beef mince into a bowl and add the onion, garlic & spice blend – mix well together.
  5. Heat a griddle pan or frying pan or BBQ to very hot.  Brush burgers with oil and cook each side 3-4 minutes – when flipping the burger over fry or grill the halloumi slice.
  6. Serve your burgers in a bun and build your garnish, pour a glass of Pepperbox and enjoy!
