Succulent beef burgers from scratch, woohoo!

I saw a handbag on an online shopping site. I wanted it so bad. It would cost me an arm and leg though….

So I made beef burgers to bribe the man. I got the handbag….with a dress to boot.

Ladies, these burgers work!

The ingredients:

  • 400g beef mince
  • 1 small red onion, peeled 
and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard powder
  • 1 tablespoon of ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • Few dashes of Tabasco sauce
  • Sea salt & ground 
black pepper

# – Throw the finely chopped red onion and minced beef into a mixing bowl.

# – Add a tablespoon of ketchup.

# – Followed by a tablespoon of mustard powder. Of course, you can squeeze yours out from a plastic bottle if you want. Who can tell the difference?

# – Don’t forget a dash of Worcestershire sauce.

# – As well as a couple of dashes of Tabasco sauce for kicks.

# – Most importantly, season with some sea salt.

# – And also black pepper.

Now, go wash your hands properly because…

# – You have to stick them into the bowl to mix everything up till combined. Massaging minced meat is one of the most therapeutic things to do, trust me.

# – Remember, till they’re all combined into a lump of gorgeousness.

# – Now shape them into 4 burger patties. Stick them into the fridge for 30 minutes to firm them up. Not too long as you don’t want the patties to dry up!

# – Then, heat up a well greased griddle and then lay all four patties on it for about 3 minutes.

# – Flip them over to cook the other sides, also about 3 minutes. You can cook them longer if you prefer your beef well done.

# – Remove from heat and onto the homemade burger buns (might post the recipe for this). Feeling fancy? Put it on a lettuce and drizzle some mayo all over…

# – Not fancy enough? Stick a slice of fresh tomato on top.

# – And don’t forget fries. Fries, very, very critical, this one!

# – And then bite onto a deliciously juicy, flavourful homemade burger made with love (and /cough/ materialistic /cough/ intention).

And that, is how you make your man buy you an expensive bag. Willingly ;)
