Ingredients

  • 450g/1lb beef mince
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • Grated zest of 1 small lemon
  • 30ml/2tbsp sun-dried tomato paste
  • 30ml/2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 5-10ml/1-2tsp wholegrain mustard
  • For the Apple and Chilli Slaw:

  • ½ white cabbage (approx. 300g/10½oz), cored and shredded
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 green apple, cored and finely sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 150g/5oz Greek yogurt
  • 5ml/1tsp cider or white wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper

Method

Mix all the burger ingredients together in a large bowl.

Using slightly damp hands shape the mixture into 10-12 small 5cm/2inch burgers.  If time allows cover and chill for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the apple and chilli slaw; in a large bowl mix all the ingredients together.  Cover and chill in the fridge until required.

Cook the burgers under a preheated moderate grill or on a prepared barbecue for 3-4 minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked and any meat juices run clear.

Serve the burgers in buns or rolls of your choice with a salad garnish and the slaw.

Tips:

If preferred use the burger mixture to make 4 x 9cm/3½inch full-sized burgers instead and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side
