Method

To Make Pure Beef and Cheese Burger

To Serve

Tips

1

Preheat the oven grill until hot. Line a shallow baking tray with baking paper.

2

Put the beef mince in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Form into 4 large beef patties. Combine Dijon mustard and hot sauce ready for brushing.

3

Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and smear with a little oil.

4

Lower the heat to medium and put in the beef patties. Cook until well browned on both sides, turning once, 6-8 minutes. (I like to use the touch method to gauge if the patties are cooked. For medium-rare the patties should still have some give. For meat that is more cooked the patties should feel firm but not dry).

5

As you turn the beef patties, brush both sides with a little mustard and hot sauce.

6

Transfer the beef patties to the prepared baking tray and top with the cheese. I use a melting cheese like smoked cheddar. Put under the hot grill until the cheese melts – this happens quickly so keep an eye out.
