Homemade Burgers

I made these burgers to serve with my wholemeal steamed buns [recipe here].  Homemade burgers are simple and easy to make with any leftover minced meat [pork or chicken or both] that you can find in your fridge.  You can  add fried egg, cheese slices and lots of fresh vegetables when serving with buns.
Ingredients for Meat Patties
[makes 4 pieces]
300 gm minced pork or chicken [or both]
salt, sugar and pepper to taste
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
50 gm onion - chopped finely
1 tbsp cornflour
  • Combine all the ingredients together.  Stir to mix well.  Slap the meat mixture against the sides of the bowl until sticky and springy.
  • Flatten mixture on a plate and divide into 4 equal portions.  Using your hands shape each portion into round patties [about the diameter of burger buns].
  • Place on a plate and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  • Heat a little oil on a non-stick pan.  Put in the patties to pan fry until cook on both sides and slightly golden.
  • Lightly sprinkle sides with a little salt, black pepper and pepper.  Remove to stack on top of warmed or toasted burger buns with other ingredients according to your preference.
Other Ingredients  for Burger Buns
4 slices of cheddar cheese
some tomato slices
some big onion rings - lightly sauteed
some salad leaves
some cucumber slices - optional
tomato and chilli sauce
4 pieces burger buns [I used wholemeal steamed buns] - split
  • Lightly spread butter on split bun halves and place on a hot non-stick pan to toast and warm.
  • Remove and place a piece of meat patty on the bottom half of bun.  Top up with the rest of ingredients and cover with the other half of bun.  Use a skewer long enough to secure stacked ingredients.  Serve immediately.

Kimmy, your burgers looks fantastic. They are very packed with ingredients. I would love to eat it. Look forwards to the steamed buns recipe.

Hi Phong Hong, these buns were already 3 days old when I made it into burgers but they we still soft. I toast it a little using the same pan that I used to fry the patties. Really yummy and filling for the tummy.
