Homemade Hamburger

We do not eat burgers often – no reason in particular, but I think it is because none of the processed, store bought patties get my stamp of approval. I felt like a hamburger tonight and wanted to make a patty with a meaty flavor, but it had to by soft and succulent.
I got crackin’ in the kitchen and I was pleasantly surprised with my result.













Homemade Hamburgers

500gr minced beef topside.
1 small onion grated
1tsp salt
10ml coriander seeds, dry roasted and ground
1 Tbs Worcester sauce
3 slices white bread, soaked in milk for a couple of minutes. Then squeeze out all milk and add to all other ingredients.

Mix all ingredients and form into patties. Fry in a hot pan or on a griddle pan.

I served my burgers with lettuce, tomato, peppadews and avocado.

The verdict from the family……..

……..delicious, mom!!!

    Hi! Living in North America now I must say that I love burgers. I really do. And yours look delicious!!!

    Coriander seeds rock! I’m sure it kicked up the burger. What gave you the idea? Those chips look very yummy!

    Nina, when the burger is homemade, little can beat it, really.

    I’ll have to try the coriander seeds on my next burger sampling.

    These look great! I’ve never had coriander seeds in a burger–must try that soon.

    Coriander, sounds wonderful! I love how pretty your plate looks and I wish I could take a bite out of that big ol burger. Potatoes look lovely as well. : )

    Making your own burgers is always fun. Just looking at those photos…I am now craving a burger… Is that sweet chili sauce garnishing the plate? Sweet chili sauce would be an interesting condiment for a burger.

    daziano – thanks for stopping by.

    chef erik – here in South Africa we have “biltong” which is similar to jerky and a very important spice in biltong is dried coriander.

    peter m – the coriander is not an overpowering taste, but gives a wonderful flavor to both lamb and beef.

    vicarious foodie – they were indee.

    ally – yea, I am a sucker for a pretty plate of food.

    kevin – the sweet chili sauce works well on a burger. I am not a great fan of tomato ketchup.

    i always love a big, juicy, hearty burger…if possible with loads of melted cheese….this looks so yummy! the corriander seeds ^_^ is a nice touch

    You did a nice job with them. I’ve never thought to put coriander seeds in a burger – yum!

  11. Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) 15 April 2008 at 12:05 pm #

    breadpitt – thank you, your comments mean a lot to me.

    mochachocolata rita – I thought the avo was rich enough otherwise we would also have cheese.

    recipegirl – try it, you’ll be amazed.

    There’s just nothing quite like a burger is there?! Delicious home-made comfort food.

  13. Kate 15 April 2008 at 7:32 pm #

    We always keep some ground turkey in the freezer for easy burger nights. Like you I’m not a fan of the processed patties.

  14. Laurie Constantino 15 April 2008 at 11:28 pm #

    So you and Peter are both stacking up potatoes in a beautiful pile – great idea! I also love the hot sauce dots and think I would want some of that sauce on my burger. Yum.

    We are having burgs tonight as well…I’m in the mood!

  16. aria 16 April 2008 at 3:43 am #

    that is one heck of a beautiful burger – the kind we here lust after!

    mmmmmmmm me want burgernow

  17. Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) 16 April 2008 at 5:36 am #

    helen – yes,a little effort with a lot of taste

    kate – mmm, I haven’t tried turkey before…

    laurie – yeah, great minds think alike, but I think his is far better.

    noble pig – go on and enjoy..

    aria – it was quite a mouthful!

    Funny how we seem to get caught up in making new and interesting recipes and there’s nothing wrong with that. The burger is such a tried and true recipe (hey – this would have been a good one for the roundup). Sometimes I really just want a simple old burger with lots of fixings.

  19. Emiline 16 April 2008 at 7:24 am #

    Mmm…that’s a good looking burger. So bright and colorful. Do people really buy already made hamburger patties? Why?!

  20. Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) 16 April 2008 at 7:30 am #

    giz – I should have, but it was such a simple meal and yet I’ve had such amazing response from it.

    emiline – you would be amazed how many people just eat to live and processed patties to them tastes the same….I’m sad for them!

  21. nicisme 16 April 2008 at 12:59 pm #

    We don’t eat beef so I have to cook veggie burgers – but one can still drool for sure!

  22. 19 April 2008 at 1:35 pm #

    OMGoodness! That hamburger looks sooooooo delish I almost bit into my screen 😉 I’m going through a bit of a hamburger fetish at the moment. I have to feed my addiction every couple of days. It’s awful!

  23. StickyGooeyCreamyChewy 21 April 2008 at 7:03 pm #

    There is nothing humble about that burger! It looks breat. I like the seasonings that you used. I love peppadews too. We just started getting them here.

  24. Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) 21 April 2008 at 7:32 pm #

    nicisme – we tried living without meat for a while, but I guess we are just carnivores by nature….

    rkhooks – there are few things as pleasant as biting into a good burger.

    stickygooeycreamychewy – great that you can get peppadews now. They can lift the simplest meal.
