Burger patties; 600 g minced beef, salt and pepper
Accompaniments: 1 romaine lettuce, 1 cucumber, 2 tomatoes, 1 red onion, 4 slices of cheddar and 4 burger buns
Burger dressing: 250 ml real mayonnaise and 3 tbsp. classic BBQ sauce
In the kitchen
- Divide the minced beef into four portions and shape into uniform burger patties. Use a burger press, if you have one, which creates a small hollow in the surface of the patties. Alternatively, you can use a glass to make a hollow in the middle. This makes the burger patties stay flat during grilling.
- Season the burgers with salt and pepper to taste.
- Wash the lettuce and tear into smaller pieces.
- Wash the cucumber and tomatoes. Peel the onion. Slice the cucumber, tomato and onion.
- Mix the ingredients for the burger dressing.
On the grill
- Prepare the grill for the 50/50 cooking method.
- Grill the burger patties. Place them over direct heat and grill on a greased cooking grate for app. 4-7 minutes on each side. Remember to put the lid on the grill.
- Split the burger buns and toast on both sides over direct heat.
- Place a slice of cheese on each burger patty and allow to melt slightly.
- Construct the burgers the way you like them with the lettuce, cucumber and onion, and serve with hot fries.
Recommended equipment: Weber burger press or a glass
