These lean beef burgers are not only simple but super tasty too. 


  • Burger patties

  • 500g lean beef mince

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 tbsp red curry paste

  • 2 green onions, finely sliced

  • 2 tbsp panko breadcrumbs (alternatively use 2 tbsp fresh

  • 80g baby rocket leaves

  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, peeled into ribbons

  • 1 large carrot, peeled into ribbons

  • 50g snow pea sprouts, trimmed

  • ¼ cup whole egg mayonnaise

  • Coriander and mint leaves, to garnish

  • Hot chilli sauce, to serve if desired


  • 1.

    To prepare the burger patty, combine the beef mince, garlic, curry paste, green onions, breadcrumbs and egg in a large bowl. Season and shape into 4 burgers.

    Try not to squash the mince mixture into a flattened disc. Make your patties about 2-3cm thick; at this size and shape the burger will cook through to the middle without becoming dry on the outside.

    Serve burgers on toasted buns with rocket, cucumber, carrot, sprouts, mayonnaise,
