Pulse daily DIY recipe teaches prospective chefs how to prepare healthy, Ghanaian dishes in a simple way.
Minced beef/ Chicken/ Pork
Finely chopped spring onion
Ground spices chopped fresh
Ground black pepper
Spread the minced meat out flat.
Grated onion, finely chopped spring onion, crushed garlic, ground spices chopped fresh or dried herbs, ground black pepper - pick the flavours you like.
Toss together gently and shape into burgers with your hands.
Squash the burgers really flat before you cook them. As they cook the meat will constrict, which will make the burgers smaller and fatter.
Season the burger with salt and pepper after shaping to retain the juice.
Chill your burgers for at least an hour before you cook them.
Pop your burgers on the barbecue or in a hot, non-stick frying pan with a little oil. Cook for 5 - 6 minutes each side for medium and 8 - 9 minutes on each side for well done.
Once the burger has browned on both sides, pop your cheese on top (if using) and cover with a small bowl or lid to finish off cooking, this will melt the cheese and keep all the lovely meaty juices inside the burger.
Always toast soft buns as it keeps the sauce from sinking into them and gives you a nice contrast of textures.
