Recipe from: 10 September 2015
recipe, beef, burgers

Ingredients 8
Servings 8
Time 00:25 + Standing time


  • 1
    slice bread
  • milk in which to soak the bread
  • 500
    minced beef
  • 1
    onion, finely chopped
  • 1
    green apple (Granny Smith), peeled and grated
  • 2
    mustard seeds
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1
    egg, beaten


Soak the bread in a little milk until it’s soggy.

Mix all the ingredients together with your hands (or if you have a well-stocked kitchen, use a food processor).

Wet your hands and shape the meat mixture into 8 patties. Place them in the fridge to firm up. If you don’t have a camping fridge, place them in a cool box or leave them in a cool place until you start braaiing.

Braai the patties over moderate coals on an open grill.

Make your own burgers with bread rolls, salad, sliced tomatoes and, if you prefer, a tablespoon of tomato pest

Go! tip:
 Grease the grid with oil or spray it with Spray ’n Cook so the meat doesn’t stick.
