200g/6oz good steak per person (OK, at a push you can use good-quality mince)
1 tbsp. soy/Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. tomato ketchup
freshly ground pepper
- Trim some (but not all) the fat from the steak. (A hamburger should have a fat content of about 10%-20% to make it moist when cooked – less fat than that makes it a little dry).
- Grind the steak in a food processor or other chopper (or get the butcher to do it for you).
- Mix in the ketchup, soy/Worcestershire sauce and pepper.
- Divide the mixture into equal parts.
- Roll each portion into a ball in your hands. Flatten with your hands on a surface, making them about ¾” thicker if you like them underdone, or thinner for well done.
- Cook on a HOT barbecue or griddle for about 2 minutes each side (medium), less for rare, or more for well-done.
