Former bankers turned chefs Will & Steve show us how to make the best ever burgers.
Previously crowned the winners of Seven Network’s top rating cooking show, My Kitchen Rules, the pair know a thing or two about how to prepare the world’s tastiest BBQ dish. Follow their recipe below.
Cook & Prep time: 45 minutes
- 500g lamb mince
- Needles from 5 long sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped
- 1 egg yolk
- 6 pinches of sea salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- olive oil
4 burger buns
- 1 large handful of rocket
- 4 slices of American cheese
- 1 red onion, cut into thin discs
- half a Lebanese cucumber, seeds removed then finely diced
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- ½ tbsp lemon juice
- tomato ketchup
- sea salt
4 small dill pickles
Combine the mince, rosemary, egg yolk, salt and pepper. Divide into 4 equal balls and flatten with your hands into round burgers. In a large frying pan over a med-high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and cook the burgers on each side for 3 minutes adding the cheese to the burger with 2 minutes to go. Remove from the pan. In a small bowl combine the mayo, cucumber, lemon and season with salt and pepper. Toast the burger buns. Assembly: add a layer of rocket to the bottom half of the bun and place the burger on top. Add two teaspoons of the cucumber mayo, a tsp of ketchup and then red onion. Place the bun on top, skewer a dill pickle and push the cocktail stick through the top of the bun to secure it in place.
