Beetroot Burger

It's not a genuine (ridgy-didge) Aussie burger if it isn't served with a slice of two of pickled beetroot.


  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 500g minced beef

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tbsp capers, rinsed and chopped

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 tbsp finely chopped pickled beetroot

  • 1 tbsp pickled beetroot juices

  • 4 English muffins


  • 1.

    Heat butter and oil in a fry pan and cook the onion slowly until pale and soft, then cool. Combine the beef, egg yolk, capers, salt and pepper in a bowl, add the onions and mix well. Add the beetroot and juice, and mix well. With wet hands, shape the meat into 4 large, flat burgers (the traditional method) or make 8 smaller, taller patties.

  • 2.

    Heat a ridged cast iron grill, oil both the grill and the burgers lightly, and grill them on medium heat for about 5 minutes on either side. Or heat a little olive oil in a fry pan and cook over medium heat until browned. Serve with grilled muffins and a handful of rocket leaves, sliced tomato and a dollop of mayo.
