ingredients

1 lb (450 g) lean beef, eg chuck, shoulder or rump steak
1/2 onion, skinned and grated
optional salt and pepper
melted butter or oil for coating or a little fat for shallow frying

optional extras

50-100 g (2-4 oz) grated cheese
15 ml(1 tbsp) sweet pickle

1 level tsp (5 ml) dried mixed herbs
1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped parsley
2 oz (50 g) mushrooms, sliced
2-3 tomatoes, skinned and chopped.

method

1. Choose lean meat and have it minced finely by the butcher.

2. Mix well with the onion (if used) and a generous amount of salt and pepper.

3. Shape lightly into 6-8 round flat cakes.

4. Brush sparingly with melted butter or oil and grill for 4-6 minutes turning once, or fry in a little fat in a frying pan, turning them once and allowing the same amount of time.

5. Hamburgers can be served rare or well done, hence the variation in cooking time.

variations
