Beef burgers recipe
When i was in Greece, burgers had always a special place in our menu. Home made ones i mean of course…
I still remember the looks of the pan getting out of the oven with the round burgers and sizzling oven potatoes as my mother were placing them on the kitchen board to get some rest. I had kept some minced meat from last time when i made the peinirli which gave me the idea to make some nice burgers. Well, to be honest it wasn’t so much left….so i made only one, but it was big enough.
I think what makes this recipe so nice is the addition of the trimmed tomato as it gives a nice sweet taste to the burger that is kind of different in relation to what i usually tried. The portions are adjusted for a one mans meal… so you made your own adjustments depending on the amount you are looking for and hopefully it will come up as nice as it did for me.
- 250gr of minced beef.
- 1/4 of a big onion trimmed
- 1/2 medium small size tomato trimmed
- A bit of oregano
- 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil
- One small cup of vinegar
- Salt and pepper
- The crumb from 1 slice of bread
The whole idea is pretty simple on how to make the burgers and i guess that is what makes it so nice. In a big bow you add all the ingredients and you start mixing them with your hands until you manage to form one big burger. You can brake it up to two i guess but i preferred to make one big one. When you do that make sure to leave them in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to relax.
Put it to a per-heated oven in medium heat and leave it over there until you see it becomes brown. Pinch it a bit with the fork to see there is no blood coming out but in the same time its not completely dry…and its ready. You can serve them with oven baked potatoes .. or just salad…or both…its up to you!
