Colleton Beef Burgers (feeds two)


  • 1 pack of Colleton Beef Mince
  • 2 x eggs (we prefer free range)
  • chilli
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • parsley
  • other spices as per your taste (EG nutmeg)


Chop the chilli, garlic and ginger finely. Combine in a bowl with the mince and the eggs. Sprinkle the spices on top. Get stuck in - mix it all up with your hands, give it a good kneading until the spice is spread evenly throughout the meat. Leave to infuse for at least ten minutes before cooking.

Use a heavy frying pan or a griddle pan, get it nice and hot (smoking) with a bit of oil (olive oil, sesame oil...etc). Split the meat into 4 roughly even chunks and pop them all into the smoking pan. Flatten a little using a spatula. Cooking times as per your taste below. Remember to flip the burger halfway through:-

Rare: 1-2 minutes

Medium-rare: 2-3 minutes

Medium: 3-4 minutes

Well done: 5-6 minutes

Serve with chips, potatoes, rice, whatever takes your fancy, and a good dash of excellent banter, possibly some beer or a good red wine to accompany :)
