Juicy Beef Burgers
This might not be that exciting but every food website has to have a selection of burger recipe’s. We started with the tandoori beef & lamb burger, then our fried chicken burger recipe and here is our recipe a simple “juicy” and very tasty beef burger. The secret to this burger is fish sauce, that smelly salty ingredient that is vile on its own but transforms a dish when used to flavour your ingredients. The fish sauce adds a wonderful savoury taste to any beef burgers and we highly recommend you try it.
These burgers also have a lot of fresh coriander in there so they feel quite fresh and light. Preparation is very simple and we recommend you make these in advance and put in the fridge or freezer so that they dont fall apart when cooking. Dont forget though to get quality steak meat to start off with. The basis to any great burger is great ingredients.
For a bit of fun we put cheese and jalapeno peppers in the centre of one of the burgers. This was something else (unfortunately we were too busy enjoying eating this to worry about taking photos of it..)!
We cooked our burgers on a skillet which adds a nice charring to the burgers and is probably the best way to get some caramelisation on these babies without using a barbeque.
