  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 2 small red peppers or yellow peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g minced beef
  • 2 x 400ml cans chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp chipotle or smoky barbecue sauce
  • 4 cheese slices
  • 6 burger buns
  • crispy onions, to serve
  • iceberg lettuce, to serve


  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, then fry the onion, pepper and garlic for 8-10 mins until softened. Add the mince, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go, and stir until it browns all over. Tip in the tomatoes and chipotle, or barbecue sauce, and add a little seasoning. Simmer for 10-15 mins until the sauce has thickened.

  2. Put the cheese slices on top of the mince and cover with a lid for 2 mins to let it melt into the sauce. Pile into the buns with the crispy onions, and lettuce on the side for scooping up the extra sauce.

Made this to the T - tasted real fun. Took a while longer to reduce the mix to firm up. We had sides of pickles and mustard and stuff like that, easy feel good food. I did burn the shit out of the onions initially, but after they were such a nice addition to the mountain and a great side snack. Yum
