It’s really worthwhile making burgers from scratch at home as you can add the level of seasoning that you prefer and you know exactly what ingredients have been added to the meat. Above all they are so tasty and you can freeze some for a busier day!

400g good quality beef mince

4 tbsp Fused Clever Classic soy sauce

3 tbsp panko

2 tbsp passata

1-2 tbsp honey (depending on the level of sweetness you prefer)

 

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Using your hands make 12 small balls with the burger mix (place in the fridge in an airtight container).
  3. When you are ready to fry the burger, flatten them gently but firmly with your hands to form the shape of a burger.
  4. Heat a non stick frying pan on medium to high heat, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  5. Carefully place the burgers on the frying pan.
