Recipe: Hereford Beef Burgers & Koftas

These Hereford Beef burgers and koftas are succulent and tender with a mighty meaty flavour that you can grill up in the kitchen or on the barbecue. 


Ingredients:

  • 1kg of minced Hereford Beef

  • 1 tbsp of favourite cooking oil 

  • 1 large onion

  • 1 medium egg

  • 2 heaped tbsps of breadcrumbs

  • 1 tsbp of paprika

  • 1 tbsp of tomato ketchup

  • 6-8 wooden BBQ skewers

  • A generous sprig of fresh mint

  • A generous sprig of fresh coriander

  • 1 tsp of chilli flakes

  • 1 lemon

  • 4 cloves of garlic

  • Ground salt and pepper to season

Method:

Start by adding your Hereford Beef mince to a mixing bowl along with a tablespoon of olive oil, beaten eggs, chopped garlic, diced onion and breadcrumbs.


Mix with your hands until all of the ingredients are combined, seasoning with salt and pepper.


Divide your mixture into two separate bowls putting two-thirds in one bowl and one third in another.


To make the burgers take your bowl with two-thirds of the beef mixture and add chilli flakes, paprika and tomato ketchup. Combine these ingredients and then take palm-sized pieces of the mix, rolling into a ball and flattening into your burger shape, repeat until you have used all of your mix.


To make the kofta take your remaining bowl with the one-third of the beef mixture and add the juice of half a lemon, chopped coriander and chopped mint. Combine the mixture and take a kiwi-ish sized piece of the mixture, shaping it firmly around one end of the skewer in a sausage shape, ensuring the mixture is firmly in place around the skewer, repeat until you have used all of your mix.


Now all you need to do is assemble a section of your favourite salads and burger buns and get them on the BBQ!
