Home made Beef Burgers

There is nothing better than homemade Beef Burgers for a barbeque, these are simple to make and very tasty.

1 onion finely chopped

Oil for frying

750g/1 ½ lbs Lean minced British Beef

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp horseradish sauce

Salt and pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onions until soft, add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Cool.
  1. Place the beef in a mixing bowl and break it up. Add the cooled onion and garlic and mix in.
  1. Add the mustard and horseradish with salt and pepper. Mix really well.
  1. Shape the mixture into burger shapes, depending on the size you like you should be able to make about 8-10 burgers. Place the burgers on a plate and chill until needed.
  1. When ready to cook place the burgers on the barbeque. Cook on each side, but make sure that the burger has sealed before turning to cook on the other side. If you don't do this they may fall apart. Cook to the desired length of time. Like all beef allow to rest before serving.
  1. These can be frozen, when raw and cooked when needed. Try placing a slice of Stilton cheese on the top when cooking the second side – delicious.
