Basic Beef Burger:

450g minced beef (knuckle)
150g sliced onions 
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
50g diced garlic
50g fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
Black pepper
1 egg, beaten
Plain flour, to shape
N.B. Items in bold are available at all MF outlets.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients for the burgers until thoroughly combined.
Cover and allow to chill for 15 minutes in a refregirator.
With lightly floured hands divide mixture into 6 and make into burgers.
Barbeque or grill for 6-8 minutes each side.
MF Tips:
To enhance the flavour or spice up your beef burger add any of the following to the basic burger recipe:
* A dash of Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, prepared mustard, chutney or La Doria tomato paste.
* A pinch of paprika, chilli powder, ground coriander, curry powder or cumin.
* Finely chopped green or red peppers, mushrooms, celery or gherkins.
When cooking your chosen cut on the barbeque, there are several ways of enhancing its natural flavour:
* Marinade the steaks prior to cooking, this gives a more intense flavour and prevents the steak from drying out when cooking.
* Baste the steaks during cooking to add instant flavour and keep the meat moist.
* Cook "au naturel" and then add your favorite seasoning sauce or mustard or one of the many savoury butters when serving.
Barbecue Cuts and Cooking Times:
Sirloin or Cuberoll (Eyeround) Steak 2cm (3/4") thick:
* 2 1/2 minutes per side for rare
* 4 minutes per side for medium
* 6 minutes per side for well done
Fillet steaks are approx. 1cm thicker so they will need an extra 1-2 minutes cooking time per side.
Basic marinade or baste:
125ml (1/2 cup)  oil
375 ml (1 1/2 cups) dry red or white wine
100g sliced onion (Qty: 1 onion)
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Mix the ingredients thoroughly. The flavour is enhanced if the mixture is allowed to stand for a few hours.
For best results, steaks should be marinated for 4-6 hours in a refrigerator and if they are not completely submerged in the marinade, they should be turned halfway through the marinating time. Use a smaller quantity of the above mixtures as a baste.
