Thai Beef Burgers

We have sold our house & moved into a rental house that has the WORST oven in all of the land…. Who am I kidding, the entire kitchen is what my nightmares are made of. The only saving grace is the gas cooktop, even though only 3 of the 4 burners work. Anyway, back to the oven. This thing is tiny but that isn’t the worst part. The worst part is that the thermostat in it is obviously broken….. Which we learnt the hard way…. A few times. This sucker will turn anything to charcoal within about 5mins if you set the temp to more than 120C. Any recipe that involves an oven for the next 6mths comes with a warning “I have no idea what temp this was cooked at”. Lucky for you, and me, this can be chucked in a frypan or on the BBQ, phew.

1kg beef mince

2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbs grated ginger
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1 bunch coriander, finely chopped
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tbs coconut aminos (you can use soy sauce or tamari)
Zest & juice of 1 lime

Pop all of this in a big bowl & mix well. Get your hands in there and make sure everything is well combined. Shape into burger patties of whatever size you like, I made big ones & this made about 6. Heat a frypan & add about a tbs of coconut oil, and cook these bad boys. We had ours with lettuce wraps instead of buns with my homemade Lime Mayo tomato sauce, avocado & sauerkraut. It was the bomb.
