Beef Recipes

Coffee & Chilli Burgers

Preparation time: 10 minutes 

Cooking time: 10 -15 minutes 

Serves: 4 

 

Ingredients from your recipe kit: 

Coffee & Chilli Rub

 

The beef to go with it:

500g of quality mince 

 

Additional ingredients you will need: 

salt and pepper

 

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: The most important part of this recipe is good quality mince from a trusted farmer or butcher. Aim for mince that’s 15-20% fat.

 

Mix 1.5 tablespoons of the Coffee & Chilli spices into the mince. Divide the mince into 4 before rolling it into balls and flattening each ball into the shape of a burger. Don’t make the burgers too fat or they will take a long time to cook - aim for about 3/4 inch.

Season both sides of the burger with salt and pepper and coat it in the Coffee & Chilli mix. Cook the burgers on a preheated barbecue or griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked.

 

SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve in a bun with onions, lettuce and tomato slices (and any sauce that takes your fancy!)
