Homemade Beefburgers

This recipe originated from Patrick Holford’s low GL diet recipe book, and, as my husband is always the chief burger maker, he has evolved it over time. It is a great meal served in a half a wholemeal pitta bread with the Spicy Mexican bean dip and some greens and tomato slices.

Serves 2



200g extra lean good quality beef mince
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Moroccan spice. (You can change it up and substitute this for a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary for a different flavour)
¼ red onion finely chopped
½ egg beaten
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp pepper

1. Simply mix all the ingredients together aside from the mince and then add this to the mince, kneading together well.

2. Divide the mixture into 4 patties and flatten into burger shapes.

3. Place on a plate and cover and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.

4. Grill the patties under a medium grill for around 7 minutes on each side or as you like them to be cooked!
