Beef burger with special sauce
( SERVES 4 )
Here is the 'Big Maketu', our version of a classic. It's all in the special sauce and the smoked cheese. We make the patties big and juicy so you'll need to have serviettes close by. It's so satisfying seeing people having to mop up the juices running down their hands as they eat.
|1 Tbsp||Tomato sauce|
|1 Tbsp||Soy sauce|
|600 g||Beef mince|
|1 Tbsp||Worcestershire sauce|
- Mix together the patty ingredients and shape into 4 patties.
- Heat a fry pan on medium heat and cook the patties on one side for 5 minutes then flip and cook for a further 4 minutes, then set aside. While the patties are still hot, place the smoked cheese on top to melt.
- Mix together all the ingredients for the special sauce. Cut the buns in half and layer with lettuce, patties, gherkin and a generous dollop of special sauce.
