I love burgers. I don't think that needs any further explanation. Lately in Kuala Lumpur there has been a big craze over burgers and burger places seem to be popping up just about everywhere! We're all looking for that good burger, juicy and just the right size to hold in your hands to devour. The best for me would be on a sesame seed bun, a juicy patty, good ol' bacon and with just enough vege to give it that freshness. Here's Tummy Thrills' take on a simple Beef Burger.
- Hamburger buns
- Minced Beef
- HP Sauce
- Oil, Pepper, Salt, sugar
- Place minced beef in a bowl. Add 2tbsp of HP Sauce or Worcestershire sauce. Add a some black pepper, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar. Mix well. Leave to marinade for at least 30 minutes.
- Fry the bacon until crisp.
- After taking the bacon off the pan, use the bacon oil to sauté the onions. Place sautéed onions into a bowl.
- Using your hands, take the minced meat and shape them into patties with the middle lower than the sides to ensure that after cooking you will have a leveled patty.
- Add some more oil to the pan and place a stick of rosemary into the pan to flavour the oil. Once pan is hot, place meat patties onto the pan. Do not press the patties down as this will cause the patty to lose its juices and become dry.
- After about 3-5 minutes, the patty should be cooked. You can check this by poking the patty a little to see if it is still soft. Personally prefer my patties medium-well.
- Add a slice of cheese over the patty to melt.
- Butter the buns and toast in the oven. Spread some mayonaise onto the bun.
- Assemble your burger and enjoy!
