Tasty Burger

Serves: 4 people.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes to prep, 10 minutes to cook.


  • 800g good quality minced chuck steak
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 splash of white wine vinegar
  • 2 large gherkins
  • 4 sesame-topped brioche burger buns
  • 4 – 8 rashers of good quality smoked streaky bacon
  • 4 tsp American mustard
  • Tabasco chipotle sauce
  • 4 thin slices of red Leicester cheese
  • Tomato ketchup
  • ¼ of an iceberg lettuce
  • 2 heaped tbsp free-range light mayo
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Divide the mince into 4 and, and roll each piece into a ball, then press into flat patties roughly 12cm wide and about 2cm wider than your buns. Place on an oiled plate and chill in the fridge.
  2. Next, finely slice the red onion, then dress in a bowl with the vinegar and a pinch of sea salt. Slice the gherkins and halve the buns.
  3. Finely chop the lettuce and mix 1 tbsp of tomato ketchup, 2 tbsp of light mayo, 1tsp Worcestershire sauce and 1 tsp of tabasco chipotle sauce in a bowl with lettuce. Season to taste.
  4. Turn on the barbeque and let it warm up.
  5. Pat the burgers with oil and season them with salt and pepper. Place burgers onto barbeque.
  6. Also place streaky bacon onto barbeque and cook both sides until cooked to your liking.
  7. With the burgers, flip after a minute and brush each cooked side with ½ a teaspoon of mustard and a dash of Tabasco. After another minute, flip onto the mustard side and brush again with another ½ teaspoon of mustard and a second dash of Tabasco on the other side.
  8. Cook for one more minute, by which point you can place some crispy bacon on top of each burger with a slice of cheese.
  9. At the same time, toast 2 split buns in the bacon fat in the other pan until lightly golden.
  10. To build each burger, add a quarter of the burger sauce to the bun base, then top with a cheesy bacon burger, a quarter of the onions and gherkins. Rub the bun top with a teaspoon of ketchup, then gently press together.
