Notes from Anna

These lean beef burgers are a great source of iron and lean protein. Serve in good quality bread rolls, stuffed with tomatoes and salad leaves for a healthy, budget friendly meal.

  1. Peel and finely chop the red onion or shallots. Peel and crush the garlic. Wash and chop the parsley. Make the breadcrumbs.
  2. Put the minced beef into a large mixing bowl and add the onion, garlic, parsley, egg, milk, nutmeg, chilli flakes and parmesan if using. Add most of the breadcrumbs, reserving a couple of tablespoons. Mix thoroughly.
  3. To make the burgers, roll the mixture into portions the size of a tennis ball. Then press flat with your hands on a chopping board sprinkled with the reserved breadcrumbs.
  4. Keep the burgers in the fridge until ready to grill.
  5. Brush the burgers with the olive oil and barbecue or grill for 6 minutes on each side, or a little longer if you prefer your burger well done.
