Beef Burger

Makes 4 burgers

1 Onion, peeled and finely chopped (slowly fry them to soften before you add them)
2 Garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
Beef steaks, chopped (approx. 100-120g per burger)
1 Lime, juice only
Roasted Cumin seeds - ground
Fresh Coriander leaves
1 tbsp Tomato Puree
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Egg
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

1. Place all the ingredients for the burger into a food processor and whizz together until blended. Don't over whizz, you want some texture there.
2. Using wet hands, divide the mixture into four even sized portions and shape into burgers.
3. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the burgers for about 5-6 minutes on each side or until thoroughly cooked through.
4. Serve immediately.

If you are starting with mince beef, mix it in with the other ingredients by hand.

Hint: Make these a day ahead, that way they "solidify" which means they don't fall apart on the barbeque.
