From a clipping of a the magazine section of The Philadelphia Inquirer. These burgers come out really moist but I've tweaked the recipe ever so slightly to make them even more moist.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the beef, spring onions, parsley, lemon juice, soy sauce, 1 teaspoons olive oil and milk.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.

My husband loves chopped steak and he is a big fan! It was very tender and had a great taste. Thanks for the recipe ; )

A couple days ago I tried to wing an invention for chopped steak, and failed miserably. Ah, the secret, mince that perforated steak up to as small of bits you have patience for! I tried this recipe because I was intrigued with the idea of lemon and beef. It works. I omitted the parsley and switched the spring onions for a diced thin slice of regular onion, as that was what was on hand. I admit I eyeballed amounts rather than measuring outright. The result was a vast improvement on my previous effort using chopped steak.
