For Beef Burger:

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices cheese
  • Oil, for grilling

For Onion Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

Assembling the Beef Burger:

  • 4 burger buns, toasted
  • 1 tomato, sliced

  1. To prepare the caramelized onion topping. Take a large frying pan and heat oil. Add onion, capsicum and seasonings along with Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Cook for about 6 – 8 minutes till the vegetables are soft and caramelized. Remove and set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, gently mix the beef, salt and pepper. Form beef patties, and set aside. In this amount of meat, 4 large beef patties can be made or 6 – 7 small beef patties can be made.
  3. Heat a grill pan or a frying pan and heat oil. Add the burger patties, cooking for about 4 – 5 minutes each side until cooked through. Top the burgers with a slice of cheese. Let the cheese melt (about 30 – 45 seconds) and take off the grill.
  4. Start assembling the burger. Toast off the burger pans in a grill pan or a frying pan. Place the bottom burger on a plate and add mayonnaise, salad leaves, tomatoes and beef patty with cheese.
  5. Top with the caramelized vegetables and the top burger bun. Serve with French fries.
