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 ;)

  1. though this question does not relate to your post, but does it increase your electricity bill alot. whenever you use your oven?

    1. Honestly I haven’t seen any marked increase, I use oven almost everyday. I believe the newer electrical appliances don’t eat energy up like it used to? If there’s any increase it must be negligible hehe

    2. Yah I don’t think it uses that much power, it’s pretty efficient. What does use a lot of power are those induction type hobs. Most newer appliances (especially those from Europe) are extremely energy efficient due to the standards imposed.

    1. indeed they are tien! i actually think it’s simpler than cooking frozen burgers. coz they cook much faster and you don’t have to defrost it. best of all, they taste heaps and bounds better!

  2. Proper chips! the size of door steps…lol…nice entry:) You mentioned mustard, I would take the powder over the tube style anytime, probably because I like super strong mustard…ever tried a making a burger with wasabi instead of mustard, trust me, they are also good!
