This recipe is ideal for the barbecue but use a good quality beef mince (ideally organic) and take care not to char the meat as this promotes the development of harmful free radicals. Serve with a pitta bread with lots of salad for a filling and delicious meal.

Serves 4


  • 16oz (454g) minced beef
  • 2 tbsp tamari (or soy) sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly with the mince.
  2. Knead the mixture, then divide into 4 patties and flatten into burger shapes.
  3. Place on a plate and cover, putting them in the fridge to firm for approximately 10 minutes or until required.
  4. Barbecue (or grill) on a medium heat, until cooked through.
