  • Serves: 2-4
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Effort: easy


  • 500 g lean minced beef, steak meat
  • 1 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 handfuls parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 sprigs rosemary, leaves only, chopped
  • 1 egg, yolk only
  • 50 g parmesan, grated
  • 1 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 pinches dried dried red chilli flakes

To serve

  • 1 red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 Little Gem lettuce
  • burger buns


1. For the burgers: mix all the ingredients together thoroughly in a mixing bowl.

2. Flatten out of the mixture onto a board until you have a 3cm thick layer. Cut out burger shapes with a biscuit cutter (or a hollowed out old tuna tin). You will probably get 2-4 burgers depending on the size of your cutter.

3. Cook the burgers for 3-5 minutes on each side for a medium burger on a griddle pan, a little longer if you prefer it more well done.

4. Remove some leaves from the gem lettuce. Place the burger in a bun with some gem lettuce leaves, sliced tomatoes and thinly sliced pieces of red onion.
