There is nothing better than homemade beef burgers! Why? Because you are in total control of everything: the quality of the ingredients, the taste of the patties and finally, they are really fun to make!...

My "Hamburger Patties" are spicy, therefore I consider them as being "sexy" because, in my house, blandness is regarded as a blasphemy! I love tasty food and I NEED strong aromas that joyfully flirt with my tastebuds and nosebuds!!! Those beef burgers are fully satisfying and their divine flavor is so boostive that you'll ask for more!!!...

So, please do your hamburgers a favour, fill them up with those explosive patties and give them the sex-appeal they deserve!!!

This recipe comes out from no other place than my kitchen (aka the spice chamber) where I play the alchemist for my biggest pleasure and also yours!...

Yields about 6-8 patties


500g Ground beef
1 Small onion, chopped
3/4 Tsp Garlic powder or 1-2 Cloves garlic, crushed
4 Tbs Quick oats
1 1/2 Tsp Cornflour (optional)
10-20 Drops Red tabasco
1 Tbs Oyster sauce
1/2 Tbs Fish sauce
1/3 Tsp Mild curry powder
1 Tsp Dried thyme
1/2 Tsp Dried oregano
1 Tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Pinch Paprika powder
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste
Flour for coating

1. In a big bowl, mix all ingredients together.
2. Knead the meat with your hands until it is homogenously mixed, about 5 minutes.
3. Shape meat into flat patties and slightly coat them with flour.
4. Fry until the patties are cooked through and golden brown

You can knead the meat as you would do with bread dough.

Serving Suggestions:
Eat accompanied by rice or pastas, or use it for your 100% homemade hamburgers. For more hamburger information and recipes click here.

If you don't like to have so many spices, then you can also reduce the quantities (but I really recommend you to keep the fish and oyster sauce)... I hope you'll like them!
