Homemade Beef Burger Recipe

  • 500g lean minced beef
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 slices white bread


  • Heat up the oil in a frying pan and add the diced onions.
  • Reduce down the heat and let the onions sweat brown
  • Add the beef to a mixing bowl and break up with your fingers
  • Tip in the onions and crushed garlic, once cooled slightly and mix together thoroughly
  • Add salt and pepper and soy sauce
  • Pour in the egg and ensure that it has been mixed right the way through the beef and onions
  • Crumble in bread and mix evenly through mixture
  • Separate the mixture into 6 portions and start moulding using your hands into burgers. I prefer larger surface area, as I like well done beef but if you prefer pink in the middle, make them thicker.
  • Place in the fridge to chilled and stiffen.
  • Once chilled cook as you would any other burger ...
  • Serve on a bap with fresh allotment greens and enjoy!

These can be frozen and defrosted for use later on!
