4 people


  • 450g lean beef mince
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely grated
  • 1cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 or 2 red or green chillies, deseeded (if preferred) and finely chopped, optional
  • 1-2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • Finely shredded chilli strips, to garnish


  1. Place the beef in a large bowl and add the onion, ginger, chilli, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Mix together thoroughly.
  2. Using damp hands shape the mixture into 4 evenly sized burgers. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  3. Brush the burgers with a little oil and cook under a preheated moderate grill or on a prepared barbecue for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and any meat juices run clear.
  4. Serve the burgers in rolls garnished with salad leaves, finely shredded chilli strips and a spoonful of your favourite prepared relishes and potato wedges.


If preferred replace the ginger with 1-2 tablespoons prepared curry powder and the Worcestershire sauce with prepared mango chutney To prevent the burgers breaking up during cooking on the barbecue, place on a sheet of aluminium foil over the barbecue grill.
