Beef burger

This super-easy homemade beef burger recipe gives you delicious patties, packed with onions and herbs for extra flavour.


½ tbsp olive oil

1 onion, peeled and finely chopped

1 x 500g pack British Beef Steak Mince 15% fat

1 tsp mixed dried herbs

1 egg, beaten

4 slices mature Cheddar (optional)

4 white rolls

Few round lettuce leaves, torn

1 beef tomato, sliced

Ketchup, to serve (optional)


  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened and starting to turn golden. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the beef mince with the herbs and the egg. Season, add the onions and mix well. Using your hands, shape into 4 patties.
  • Cook the burgers on a preheated barbecue or griddle for 5-6 minutes on each side. While the second side is cooking, lay a slice of cheese on top to melt slightly.
  • Lightly toast the cut-sides of the buns on the barbecue. Fill with the lettuce, burgers and tomato slices.
  • Serve with ketchup.
