Beer and chilli burgers
( SERVES 5 )
This is definitely one for the boys – chilli and beer inside a delicious burger!
|1||Onion, medium, diced|
|1 Tbsp||Crushed garlic|
|2 Tbsp||Dried thyme|
|1 kg||Beef mince|
|1 Tbsp||Dried oregano|
|2 Tbsp||Jalapeno peppers, chopped, from a jar|
|¼ cup||Fresh parsley, chopped|
|1 cup||Stout, or strong beer|
|1 tsp||Black pepper|
|1 to serve||Onions, grilled|
|1 to serve||Green salad|
|1 to taste||Mustard|
- Cook onion gently in a little oil for 2 minutes before adding the garlic, thyme and oregano. Cook for a further 2 minutes before scraping the onion mix into a large bowl to cool.
- Add the beef mince to the bowl with all other ingredients except beer or stout.
- Stir in stout or beer then use a cup measure to portion mixture. Mould mixture into patties.
- Smear the grill with oil and cook burgers over a moderate-high heat on each side until cooked through – approximately 5 minutes on each side.
Make these burgers a day or two ahead if you can as the flavours will improve. If you want more than a mild heat, double the quantity of jalapeno peppers.
