Over the last 2 weeks, I have been blessed with eating yummy homemade burgers by two ladies (my neighbour and church CG member). I would meet this neighbour every Tuesday at my place or her place because her daughter is the same age as Y. And she is from my home country! And typical of an Indonesian, she cooks well, especially Indonesian dishes.
My CG leader’s wife is also a very hospitable and generous lady. We attended the Momentum Conference on Labour’s Day and thanks to her foresight, she made burgers for our lunch so that we did not need to squeeze with the crowd and spend alot of money, since it was at Suntec City.
And so, I was inspired to try making my own. I looked for the easiest recipe online, one that doesn’t require many ingredients. So I chose one that doesn’t require breadcrumbs since I don’t have, and too lazy to make my own. But this recipe has onions. I’m sure some people don’t like to eat onions. Don’t add the onions if you don’t like it.
Basic Burger Recipe
This recipe made 4 big and 5 small thick patties.
600gr minced beef (I bought frozen minced beef)
1 big onion diced finely
Mushrooms (I used Bunashimeiji since it’s in my fridge)
Tomato sliced (But I didn’t have it in my fridge. It would have looked nice in the burger)
Chilli Sauce (I used bottled Maggi Chilli Sauce)
The bigger patty had a higher risk of breaking apart, as you can see in the photo above. But it was still ok because I tried to be very careful when flipping with my spatula.
I didn’t dice my onions small enough. You can see all the bits falling out of the patty.
This burger is suitable for picnics and parties (especially the mini ones), and of course your main meals. I thought it still tasted nice even when it has turned cold.
