THE CUT

Beef patties are made from ground beef commonly known as mince.  It comes in varying degrees such as prime or premium depending on the fat content.  For beef patties it’s a good idea to look for a higher fat content which will add flavour and help hold the mince mixture together when cooking.
 

HOW TO COOK

It is best to cook beef patties over a hot pan or BBQ grill.  They need to be cooked through thoroughly to an internal temperature of 65°C or until all they are no longer pink inside.
