Meat. That’s about it. Minced beef is the main ingredient of a proper burger. Do not let people tell you that a burger needs egg in it to bind it, or flour in it to make it flowery. Continue reading

The Zurich Burger

Print this entry

This is the method used by my mate Rich out in Zurich. I have not tried it myself, but he informed me that he got very good results. Here is what he said:

“Sifu, you would have been proud of me yesterday; made some tanfastic beefburgers! In fact, they were so good I had some more for breakfast this morning. My Burger-Fu is a slightly different style to yours, though… I used a lot more beer, mixed the spices and worcester sauce into in and then broke up and mixed up the beef into it to soak about an hour before I cooking. I was a bit worried that they would break-up in the pan, but they held up just fine. They also had an unique shape which would, perhaps, disqualify them in an official burger tournament: I forgot to buy burger buns and only had little mini-baggettes so I made the burgers almost kibi-shaped. It worked well.”

So that’s the Zurich Burger. It worries me slightly, this breaking the mince up, as it goes against the rules set out in the Mighty Mince Cookbook (Jane Todd, 1980), but I am tempted to try it sometime. I also must add a recipe for kibe, as they are great Arab influenced Brazilian meat ball.
