• 500g 5% fat Beef Mince
  • 250ish g grated carrot
  • 1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red chilli, finely chopped
  • Good pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 egg to bind all together.


  • STEP 1
    Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix together until throughly mixed.
  • STEP 2
    Separate into balls and flatten to your required size. Bear in mind they will shrink and puff up when cooking, I make them a little bigger and flatter to take that into account.
  • STEP 3
    Leave them to rest for about a day in the fridge, this helps them to stay together when cooking.
  • STEP 4
    It’s time to cook them. Cooking times will depend on the sizes you have made. I like to cook fry them on a high heat to get a bit of a char on them and turn it down towards the end To make sure they cooked throughout. Get your frying pan nice and hot, put a little oil on the burger and put in the pan, and turn it after a few minutes.
