Aussie Beef Burgers

"An Australian beef burger that puts all the flavour in the burger and can be served with plain sides like bread and a little sauce. This is quite a mild tasting burger, if serving for people who enjoy hot foods add chili sauce and/or chopped chili."

Ready In:




  • Mix all ingredients very well in a bowl and place in refrigerator for an hour or so (optional).
  • Form into burgers the size and shape of your liking, keeping them rounder but fairly flat helps them cook throughout.
  • Cook on a BBQ or grill around 7 minutes per side or until done to your preference. The carrot and onion make this a little crumblier than some burgers so turn carefully.

  1. I chose this as one of my recipes for the recipe swap #2, and I have to agree that these ingredients do put all the flavor in the burger. My husband is a big burger fan so I made this just for the 2 of us. We really enjoyed these. The only changes I made was to add 2 TBLS. worcestershire sauce. I have no desire to stand at the barbecue in snowy weather so I broiled these and added 1 tsp. liquid smoke to make up for not barbecuing.I will definetly be making these again. Thanks for sharing this Peter.
  2. Yum, only used one egg. Who doesn't like burgers???
  3. Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Tag game. I made these burgers with a little over a lb. of ground beef and since I wasn't using the outdoor grill I added a few drops of liquid smoke to the mixture as another reviewer suggested. I grilled them on the George Foreman indoor grill and they came out great. They do remind me more of meatloaf patties than hamburgers, though. Thanks for posting.
  4. This makes a nice and tasty burger. The carrot was shredded and I liked that addition. A way to hide veggies in burgers is also great. The seasoning are similar to those I have used in the past. They were topped with Provolone Cheese and garnished with lettuce, red onion slices and jalapeno peppers. Made for Aussie Swap.
  5. Peter this is similar to one in which I have made before and liked that as well. I like the addition of the Worstechire sauce and wow does it add flavor. Instead of dicing the carrots I shredded them so they would mix with the beef easier and hide from others (LOL) Wonderful, juicy, and delicious. Served on fresh baked rolls and with strips of bacon, lettuce, tomatoe, horseradish mustard as condiments. Delicioso! Made for AUSSIE/NZ Swap Aug2011


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
