For young and old, a tasty juicy burger. Make sure that the minced meat contains at least 20% fat. In this way, the hamburger is basting himself so that he does not dry out.
Beer & Food pairing: Combine this with a fruity belgian tripel with hints of citrus and banana.
- 450 gr minced beef (15,87 oz)
- 2 onions
- 2 tomatoes
- 100 gr iceberg lettuce (3.53 oz)
- 50 gr cocktail gherkins (1.76 oz)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped parsley
- 2 tablespoons of cream
- 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of mild mustard
- 4 sesame buns
- freshly ground black peper
Advice: To prepare, chop the onion very finely and keep 2 tablespoons of chopped onion on the side for the salad. Chop the parsley and cut the iceberg lettuce into strips. Chop the cocktail gherkins.
Instructions step by step
Mix the ground beef, garlic, onion, cream and parsley in a bowl until well adhered and season with salt and pepper.
Divide the mixture into 4 and make flat discs about 10 cm in diameter.
Brush the burgers with a little oil and roast on the barbecue for 5 minutes on each side until medium red.
In the meantime, you have time to mix the iceberg lettuce, the cocktail gherkins, the chopped onion, mild mustard and mayonnaise and season some more with salt and pepper.
Roast the sliced sesame buns on the barbecue for 1 to 2 minutes, then place the tomato, burger and some lettuce mixture on top of the bun. Put the top part on it and enjoy in combination with a fruity belgian tripel.
