Spicy Beef Burger Patties


500–600 gm beef, minced
1 egg
2 tbs flat leaf parsley, roughly crushed
1 tbs sage
1 sprig thyme
1 sprig rosemary
3 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tbs ground cumin
1/2  tbs ground cloves
1 tbs coriander seeds
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
4 tbs olive oil
4 burger buns



Finely chop all herbs. Mix all the ingredients together except olive oil and the buns. Mix well.

Leave aside to stand or refrigerate overnight.

Place the grilling pan over high heat.

Shape the meat mixture into four burger patties. Brush one side of the patties with oil. Place the oiled side down onto the grilling pan and cook over medium heat for 3–5 minutes.

Brush with more olive oil before turning over. Cook for another 3–5 minutes.

Place the patties in the buns and serve immediately with your choice of condiments or a green salad.


Any other minced meat or fish make excellent substitutes.
