HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BURGERS
- 1kg (2lb 4oz) minced steak
- 1tsp sea salt
- 1tsp pepper
- burger buns, lettuce and tomatoes
- 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).
Top Tip for making Homemade Burgers
To make sweet potato chips, cut sweet potatoes into long slices, place in a roasting tin and drizzle lightly with olive oil and sea salt. Roast for 35 minutes at 200C, 180C fan, 400F, gas 6.
