Remove from the baking tray and leave to cool. Remove the skin of the garlic and mash the flesh. Chop the steak finely or cut it into 2,5 cm cubes and pulse it 10 times (no more) in a food processor. Mix the meat, vegetables and remaining ingredients well. Divide the meat mixture into 6 equal balls and flatten them to make burger patties. Brush on both sides with the remaining olive oil.
