My husband was craving for spicy beef burger. Because of the fast food chain scandals exposed lately, I decided to make use of the food stuff available in my fridge and just make my own burger patties. While others like their patties to be plain beef, I like mine to have more veggies.
- 300 grams ground premium Hanu beef
- 100 grams tofu
- 1 egg
- 1 chopped oyster mushroom
- 1 chopped green chili pepper
- 1 chopped red paprika pepper
- 1/4 crushed carrots
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup of flour
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl, then mix thoroughly.
To make perfectly-formed hamburger patties, get a jar lid same or a little bigger than the size of your burger bun. Cover the lid with plastic wrap. This will make it easier to remove the patty after each use. Firmly press the meat down into the lid until it flattens.
Put a sheet of cooking paper or plastic wrap on the patty then flip the lid over.
Heat the pan with a drizzle of oil over medium high, place the patty and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
Serve in lightly toasted hamburger buns with a slice of tomato, cheddar cheese, pickles and tomato or mustard sauce. You can also add fried egg, lettuce and onion rings if you like. 🙂
