Maternity leave is a good time to catch up on many things. Catching up with cleaning, putting our home in order, all the TV series I may have missed, blogging and of course what I love doing the most, cooking!
For those who don't know what to cook this weekend, try to make your own burger patties. It was my first time trying to cook it. I referred to few recipes and decided to improvised to suit my own tastes, and the kids also....
I always prefer beef than chicken so for this one, I am sharing beef burger patties recipe. Beef is much simpler, chicken if not cooked well, it can get a bit dry and not so delicious. Please also note when I cook, I don't really use specific measurement, more like a secukup rasa kind of thing
Ingredients (To make 4 burgers)
500gm Beef, please choose the part when it combines the meat and the fat so the patties can be moist and juicy
Anise (Jintan Manis)
Mince the beef. Please avoid using blender as it may get too watery. Use the food mincer instead. If you don't have that (cause we don't) use the part that usually is used to blend the nuts. Sorry, I don't know what that part is called. When you buy blender, it will come with 2 main blending container, I used the small one
Blend the garlic and shallots. Then mix that with black pepper, paprika powder, coriander and anise
Mix ingredients all including the beef and items in step 2. Make sure you mix in well with your fingers so all the spices are well segregated
Mould the beef to burger shape.
You can choose to cook it either using pan or oven. We were hungry so I decided to pan fry it.
Garnish it with buns, onions, salad, cucumber and tomatoes. Add cheese if you want to
Tada! The burger is now ready to be served. Do give it a try and share with me the outcome ya!
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
