Burgers are always a crowd pleaser – time to fire up the barbecue and whip up a batch of simple, yet delicious beef burgers.

You’ll need:

  • 4 hamburger rolls cut in half
  • 800g minced beef
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 4 cheese slices
  • 2 tomatoes sliced
  • Pickles
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper

Step 1. Mix the minced beef very well with plenty of salt and pepper and shape into balls.  

Step 2. Place between baking paper and flatten with your hand to form the patty. Allow the patties to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 3. Fry the onion and set aside.

Step 4. Grill the patties on both sides until medium rare and set aside.

Tip: You’ll know when it seals as meat will release easily.

Step 5. Lightly toast hamburger rolls.

Step 6. Top patties with onion, pickles and cheese slices.

Step 7. Spread mayonnaise to the bottom piece of the roll, and mustard on the top.

Step 8. Add tomato, lettuce and the meat patty with onion, pickles and cheese to the bottom piece of the roll.  

Step 9. Finish by securing the top of the roll with a skewer.

Barossa reds like Torbreck Woodcutters Shiraz, Earthworks Shiraz and Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz are a great match for barbecued meats including beef burgers.
