  • 170 gm lean ground beef 95%lean and 5% fat
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon bread crumb I've used fresh
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  • To a large bowl, add all the ingredients.
  • Mix gently, which will allow the beef to stay fluffy and tender when cooked.
  • Shape into 2 patties about 1 inch high. Cover and freeze 10 minutes. (When making a patty, do not compress the beef. Otherwise, the burger will take longer to cook and will not remain juicy.)
  • Grill burgers 4-5 minutes on each side. Do not press burger as it cooks, because this will release juices and the burger will become tough.
  • Remove burgers when done. Cover immediately and wait at least 5 minutes before serving. This will allow the beef to rest, hold its shape, and enhances the flavor.

  1. I think I would like turkey burger.. 🙂 The problem with burgers is that they go very well with fries 😀

  2. My husband will sure love this…with some fries.
    Have a lovely weekend, Muna.

  3. Scrumptious! Wither over fries, perfect…



  4. This sounds just wonderful. I love that you figured out how to make lean beef into a juicy, tasty burger. Such nice photos too. I’ve heard that burgers are one of the hardest foods to photograph, BRAVO to you! 🙂
