Instructions

Barbecuing the best beef burger doesn’t have to be complicated. Start with good quality beef mince. Our top pick is coarsely minced chuck, it has the perfect meat to fat ratio (80% meat and 20% fat). Customise it with your favourite fillings, your favourite burger sauce and of course pickles are optional.
  • In a bowl combine all the patty ingredients (see tip 1). Divide the mix into 4 portions
  • Roll each portion into a ball and then flatten with the palm of your hands, so they are about 2 cm thick. Using your thumb, make an indentation in the centre of the patty. This helps to keep the patties a consistent thickness when cooking
