Prep time 10 mins
Cook Time 6 mins
200g lean minced beef (max 5% fat)
½ red onion, finely chopped
½ carrot, finely grated
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
½ beef stock cube, crumbled
2 wholemeal baps
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup or brown sauce
1 tomato, sliced
- Put the minced beef in a food processor to blitz until smooth.
- Now add the finely chopped onion, chives, grated carrot and crumbled beef stock cube in the processor and blitz to combine all the ingredients.
- Divide the mixture into two ball shapes and use your hands to press down to form two burger shapes. Press them until quite thin and wide as they will shrink and fatten up as they cook.
- Dry fry the burgers in a hot non-stick frying pan or barbecue, turning regularly, for 5-6 minutes, ensuring they are cooked through.
- To assemble the burgers spread each bap with the sauce of your choice, add the burger and top with some rocket leaves and slices of tomato.
