Beef Burgers Tonight.

We'll be using the burger maker that we had delivered from Lakeland Plastics this evening. With the piece of equipment, came a small recipe booklet and we'll be using a recipe for beefburgers from it.

Ingredients.

1lb lean minced beef.
1 onion finely chopped.
2 tbsp soy sauce.
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce.
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Method.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until thourghly amalgamated.
Divide the mixture into four and press out the burgers in the press.
Then all you have to do is cook them.
Hopefully, its idiot proof. Pictures but no tasters to follow.

Here's the proof

Here is the first burger in the very simple press (it arrived from Lakeland Plastic in a huge box 10 times bigger than the burger press box with all the rest of the room filled in with brown paper)



and they are so simple to make



and here is the finished product with a simple dressed salad and homemade granary bread

The ones that we haven't eaten tonight I've frozen individually and can then bag them together in the freezer.

They look good

Certainly looks like something that cheap actually works.
Might get it delivered today.

Bazzer

That's not hard for most of us Norm.
Pilsbury

the lakeland burger presses are certainly worth the money, we have had ours for 5 years at least and make hundreds of burgers each summer for us and friends and family and its still going strong with no hint of wear.

Fish cakes coming soon to a plate near me.  I think that we'll get a lot of use out of this little gizmo.
Big Phil

Inspired by you
800g ground beef
1 teaspoon worcester sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 good squirt tomato puree

Mixed loosely

Pressed into scone cutter (as a mold) with a little blob of cheese in the middle.

Try adding smoked Paprika and mustard powder to your mix as well.
Or hold the worcester sauce and add Tabasco or Jalaperno sauce
Minced Rabbit with added fat and lots of Garlic on top of your favourate mix is good on the BBq as well.

might be worth lookig round at boot fairs and th like or a little hand one then, or see if your food processer has an attatchment
Diz

If you make your mix up last thing at night/first thing in the morning, let it stand (without a lid or cling film on top.This allows any excess moisture to escape) in the fridge untill the the evening of cooking. This allows all the flavours to fully develop and get into the meat/fish. Especially if using aromatic herbs and spices. The draw back is the Onion can taint everything else in the fridge!

Saphire, have a look round for an old fashioned hand crank mincer with a smooth plate. Cheeper on the 'Leky' if your only using it occasionally. We use ours regulaly to make Sausage and Salami and conversation while doing so. Great machine.

thanks Bazzer  
Pilsbury

I would actually recommend the 1/4 lb press, its bigger so you can make wider thinner burgers that cook quicker and as all homemade burgers tend to shrink they are still a good size to fit in the standard burger rolls.
sapphire

Thanks for the tip pilsbury
