  1. In a large bowl mix all the burger ingredients together. Using slightly damp hands shape the mixture into four 10cm/4inch burgers. Cover and chill for 20 minutes.
  2. Cook the burgers under a preheated, moderate grill or on a prepared barbecue for 6-8 minutes on both sides until thoroughly cooked or until any meat juices run clear.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the relish; place all the ingredients into a small bowl and mix gently.

Tips:

For the best burgers we recommend that you don’t use a lower fat lamb mince. To avoid staining your fingers, wear disposable plastic gloves when preparing the beetroot.
