Juicy Meat Burger Recipe

Summer draws with refreshing series of jazzy salads, fresh green leaves and something untainted and light to rely on. What makes gripping on the menu in summers are easy and delicate food that amalgamates with a punch of quenching cocktails to beat the hot summers. All I think of right now are of juicy drinks, velvety cold coffee, chilled ice tea and anything really mellow to tuck in my tummy and what can be more substantial than a sublime source of protein! Summers and meat can sound juicy and extra easy when contributed in a right level of portion; I prefer meat as tacos filling or patties to level up the ideal version of summery meal plan. Summers for me means less counting of spice and addings in my yummy dish that means this recipe is perfect for the health conscious as well as for those who prefer less heat.

I shuffled this up last night for the dinner and my husband simply loved it! Every time I make meat burgers for him I get a turn to order heavenly veg dishes from my favorite restaurants, it is a clear run to cheat home food!! Amazing isn’t it. Last night, I went for scrumptious Pav Bhaji and believe me, it’s one of the yummiest veg dishes I totally die for! A perfect blend of mashed potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, peas, capsicum tossed together until the spices give the perfect buttery taste. Oh! Reminds me of the flavors from home, Sardar Pav Bhaji where the over-generous scoops of butter are necessary in every plate of Pav bhaji, my memory is covered up by the images of tastes, tempting smell and buttery texture, I ordered it because I was missing Mama whose enduring love is “Pav bhaji” and I often resort to eat as the familiar smell helps to overcome home sickness. Coming back to our flavorful meat burger, it’s fast and so easy that I knew I had to share. It’s just not delicious and healthy; it’s pretty to look at, toss your favorite salads together with medium sized patties and creamy dressing inside. All you need is gentle amount of patience and love to cook and eureka you’re done making yummy meat burger at home!

Juicy Cheesy Meat Burger

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Serves: 1-2 persons

250 grams minced meat
2 buns, sesame seeds studded
½ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon green chili paste, optional
A pinch thyme powder
½ teaspoon paprika powder
1 egg, beaten
1 slice of bread
1 tablespoon parsley
3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 cheese slices
Tomato ketchup, as desired
Mustard paste, as needed
½ teaspoon garlic paste
½ teaspoon black pepper powder
2 tablespoons milk
½ teaspoon vinegar
½ teaspoon salt, to taste
Iceberg salad as needed

  • Simply start by marinating mince with ½ teaspoon black pepper powder, ½ teaspoon mustard paste, 1 tablespoon parsley, 1 teaspoon green chili paste, ½ teaspoon garlic paste, ½ teaspoon paprika powder, a pinch of thyme and half beaten egg. 
  • Soak a slice of bread in 2 tablespoons of milk, squeeze the bread gently and add it into the minced mixture, mix well and form a medium-size, thin patty follows with the remaining.
  • Place patty over a grilled pan and let it cook from both the sides until crisp and golden. Always allow the one side of the patty to shallow fry for 5-8 minutes on a low heat and then turn gently to the other side, this will prevent the patty from breaking, drizzle few drops of olive oil when needed.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, add 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 5 tablespoons of ketchup, ½ teaspoon of vinegar, 1 teaspoon mustard paste and mix until the paste blends.
  • Spread the paste generously all over the ups of the buns and top with salad leaves, juicy meat patty and cheese slices, finish off by toasting the buns gently on the hot griddle (add cooking oil before toasting them!). Toasting buns in hot cooking oil gives a nice glossy texture outside and creamy effect from the insides.
  • You can add slices of tomatoes, pickled gherkin and even onion rings but we prefer light eating’s in summer so I have kept it minimum, Enjoy summers!
