Seriously Incredible Beef Burger Recipe

We mean it when we say this is a seriously incredible beef burger recipe! The best thing about making burgers at home is that they are fully customisable. The recipe below is how we like to eat ours. The burgers themselves are really simple, to let the flavour and quality of the steak mince shine, but we don’t half go to town on the garnishes!  Serves 4

Cooking Burgers Using top quality HomeButchers mince make these burgers really special.


For the Burgers

  • 500g HomeButchers steak mince
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • plenty of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

To Garnish

  • 4 brioche buns, sliced
  • 4 chunky slices of red onion
  • 4 chunky slices of tomato
  • 4 slices of strong cheddar
  • some pickled gherkins or jalapeños
  • Sweet Mustard and tomato ketchup


  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the burgers and season really well. Mix with your hands to ensure all the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Next, divide the mince into equal portions. You can either make 4 fat burger patties, or 8 thin wide patties and double up, depending on how you prefer your burgers.
  3. Place your burger patties on a grill pan and cook under a high grill. For thick patties, you will need 6 - 9 minutes on either side, depending on how well done you like your burgers. For thin patties, they will only need 3 - 4.
  4. On the hob, heat up a griddle pan and griddle the onion pieces till they have char marks and have softened slightly.
  5. While the onions are cooking, add your cheese slices to the burger patties and put them back under the grill. If you are using jalapeños, I like to add these to the cheese before it grills, so the cheese bubbles up and engulfs the jalapeños
  6. Next toast the inner side of the brioche buns . Slather the top half with ketchup and the bottom half with sweet mustard.
  7. As soon as the patties have cooked, build your burgers. Stack up the gherkins, then the burger patties with cheese, then the onions and tomatoes.
  8. Stick your face in it!
