Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • for frying sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 500g minced beef
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 4 sesame burger buns

  • 1 beefsteak tomato, sliced

ranch dressing

  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 fat clove garlic, crushed
  • a small bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • a small bunch dill, chopped
  • a large pinch (optional) onion powder
  • a couple of good squeezes lemon juice

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the ranch dressing ingredients in a bowl with seasoning. Cover until needed.

  • STEP 2

    To make the burgers, gently fry the onion in 1 tbsp oil with the oregano, cumin and paprika. When soft, transfer to a large bowl and cool. Add the beef, worcestershire sauce and season. Mix well and add just enough egg to bind the mixture. Form into 4 burgers about 2 cm thick. Chill until needed (you can make these a day ahead).

    Grill the burgers over medium-hot coals, about 5-6 minutes each side for medium, 8-9 minutes for well-done. Split and lightly toast the burger buns.

  • STEP 4

    Lay 2 lettuce leaves and a slice of tomato on the base of each bun. Add some dressing. Top with a burger, relish and gherkins.
