Burgers, proper home-made Burgers! Yum!

Today was an exciting day in our household, because this item arrived:

Aside from the exciting baking possibilities that beckon, this heralds a new start in our kitchen…the start of mincing meat ourselves and making burgers and sausages! Yay! (I know, I’m a kitchen geek! lol)

So, I thought, what could we inaugurate our machine with?  Burgers, that’s what!

If you don’t have your own mincing machine, don’t worry, you can still make these burgers.  Just buy the meat ready minced (ground, for those in the USA) and make sure you chop the other ingredients REALLY finely and mix them in well.

IngredientsPork Beef Sage Burgers | Homemade BurgersPork Beef Sage Burgers | Home-made Burgers

250g beef sirloin

900g pork shoulder

12 large fresh sage leaves

1 large onion

3 garlic cloves

freshly ground black pepper, to taste

sea salt, to taste

Method

PPork Beef Sage Burgers | Homemade BurgersPork Beef Sage Burgers | Home-made Burgerseel the garlic, peel and cut the onion into large rough chunks, chop the pork and beef into rough chunks.

If you are using a meat grinder, put all the ingredients (except salt & pepper) through the grinder, mixing some of them up so they grind up together.  If you are using ready minced meat, chop all the other ingredients very finelly (ideally using a food processor or electric chopper) and mix them into the meat.

Add salt & pepper to taste.

Mix well by hand.

Shape into 8 burgers.

Grill the burgers until cooked throughout and serve with your favourite side dishes.  Tonight, we had our burgers with pan-fried courgettes and aubergines and potato wedges. Delicious!
