Ingredients

  • 500g chuck beef (80 meat to 20 fat ratio), cut into 5cm cubes
  • 4 slices of American cheese

Preparation

This recipe is created by Justine Schofield for our partnership with Everyday Gourmet.

Chill the chuck cubes in the freezer for 40 minutes.

Place the onion into a small bowl and season with salt. Mix and let stand to allow them to mellow in flavour.

Put the meat into the bowl of a food processor and mince, speed 6 for around 15 seconds. Place into a bowl and season with a good pinch of salt and pepper and add the onion.

Use your hands to mix through and portion into 4 equal balls. Press on each portion of meat to form patties that are about half a cm bigger than the burger buns. The meat will shrink when fried.

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook for a few minutes on each side until just crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel. In the same pan add beef patties and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip and add a slice of cheese. Cook for a further 3 minutes.

Cut the buns in half and toast under the grill element in the oven.

Dress the top part of the bun with tomato sauce and mustard. Using a palette knife place the patties on the base of each bun and top with, bacon, onions and pickles. Sandwich the burgers together and serve.
