(A note on my measuring units)
For The Patties:
1lb/500g ground beef
(how to grind your own meat)
1 half onion grated or finely chopped
4 pinches ground coriander
4 pinches paprika powder
a little pepper, fresh ground is better
a little salt
1 hand fresh bread crumbs
1 egg lightly beaten
1 quarter beef bouillon/stock cube dissolved in 2 to 3 tablespoons water
For the Rolls:
thinly sliced onion
a few slices of gherkin
Mix all the patty ingredients thoroughly, leaving the salt for after the patties are cooked if you prefer
(how to season meat).
Make sure the mixture is cool. Divide mixture into 4 equal balls and mold into patties
(how to mold patties).
Cook on medium heat under the grill, on the barbecue or in
(how to regulate cooking temperature)
untill the patty is cooked to your preferred degree of doneness or the
internal temp reaches 160F/70C
(when is my patty cooked?).
Split the rolls and toast the cut surfaces lightly (under grill, on barbecue or in a pan) just before the patties are done. Spread mayonnaise on the
bottom halves, add a thin slice of onion, some lettuce, a
slice of tomato and a little sliced gherkin. Top it off with a little mayo and ketchup, the
patty and the top half of the roll.
