Burger with Caramelised Onions & Mustard
SERVES 4 | 15 MINS PREP | 30 MINS COOK TIME
600g premium beef mince
- olive oil
- plain flour
- 4 brioche burger buns, halved
- Dijon mustard
- 2 onions, halved and thinly sliced
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil and butter in a sauté pan on a low-medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently until soft, translucent and beginning to caramelise.
Remove and set aside. (The onions can be made a day ahead kept in the fridge and be reheat when required.)
Place the meat in a large bowl with a good pinch of salt, mix well and shape into four evenly-sized patties.
Preheat a cast iron pan to a very high heat, then dust each patty with a small amount of flour and cook on one side for 3 minutes.
Dust the other side with flour, flip and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. The dusting of flour will help create a lovely crust to help seal in the juices.
Remove, cover and rest the patties for 5-6 minutes while you toast the sliced buns in the same pan.
Spread a heaped teaspoon of Dijon mustard on each toasted bun bottom, add the burger patty and a healthy spoonful of the onions. Finish with another heaped teaspoon of Dijon mustard on the top of the bun, place it on top and devour with joy!
