Mediterranean Beef Burgers

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Trim the courgette and grate it coarsely onto a board, then tip it into a large mixing bowl. Peel the onion and grate it coarsely, then add this to the bowl with the courgette. Put the minced beef, garlic, oregano, basil and tomato paste or puree into the same bowl and season well with salt and pepper. Mix with clean hands until everything is thoroughly combined.
  2. Divide the mince mixture into 4 evenly sized balls and flatten each into a patty shape about 2cm thick. Brush the oil over a large non-stick frying pan and place over a low heat. Fry the burgers gently for about 10 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked through, turning them halfway through the cooking time. Preheat the grill to its hottest setting.
  3. While the burgers are cooking, cut the ciabatta rolls in half horizontally and place them on a grill pan, cut side up. Cook under the preheated grill until lightly toasted. Remove from the heat and take the bread off the tray and put it to one side.
  4. Place the hot burgers on the tray and top each one with a slice of mozzarella. Put the tray back under the grill for another 1-2 minutes or until the mozzarella has melted.
  5. Put the bottom half of each roll on a plate and top with sliced tomatoes and basil leaves. Add a dribble of balsamic vinegar and some black pepper. Add a sizzling hot burger, top with the remaining bread and serve right away. Fantastic!
