  • 1kg (2lb 4oz) minced steak
  • 1tsp sea salt
  • 1tsp pepper

to serve

  • burger buns, lettuce and tomatoes


  1. Mix the mince, salt and pepper, then shape into 6 burgers. Cook on the barbecue - start high then move them to the lower heat on the side – or sear in a frying pan then put in a hot oven for 10 minutes. If you like, serve in burger buns with lettuce and tomatoes, and your favourite sides – we love sweet potato chips (see tip).
