Sharon Moran's Best Burgers

INGREDIENTS (Makes 20 burgers)
2 kg minced beef (it is best not to use very lean mince as the fat will help to keep the burgers moist)
2 finely chopped shallots
8 tbsp fine bread crumbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp salt
1 tsp mustard power or mustard
1 tsp black pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tsp finely chopped parsley


Place the beef in a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
Mix it all together until just combined.
This is best done by hand but be careful not to over-work the mixture or you'll get a tough burger.
Wet your hands then shape the mixture into burgers by flattening the mixture in your hand about 2cm or 1 inch thick and smoothing the edges.
The burgers can now be cooked either on a griddle pan, non-stick frying pan with a bit of oil, or even a barbeque.
Pre-heat the frying pan, griddle pan or barbeque to a medium heat.
Cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side, turning them once only.
Serve in a warm sesame seed bun with grated cheese, lettuce, tomato, a slice of onion and some sliced gherkin.
