Quick Buger with Sautéed Onion Rings

Burgers! Couldn't live without it when I was a child. I try not to eat too much of it ever since friends and family kept telling me that burgers are junk food with no nutritional value and it makes me fat!!  But you just need that little treat after a long hard day! Totally satisfying with some fries and a chilled coke.... Aahhhhhhh..

Fortunately I came to realize that  there is a better substitute for drive-thru burgers... Burgers that can be somewhat homemade with healthier ingredients. ... and this is my version of a LESS GUILT BURGERS!

Serves 2 person


Ingredients:
For the burgers
200g lean minced beef
1/4 small red pepper / capsicum - chopped
1/4 small yellow pepper / capsicum- chopped
1 small onion -  chopped and sauté on a small pan on medium heat with some oil till very soft or caramelized. Let cool. 
2 tsp plain yogurt
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp freshly grind black pepper
2 tbsp cooking oil


For the Sauté onions
1 large onions - cut into rings
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp cooking oil

Method:

1) Combine and mix well first 8 ingredients. Divide into 2 equal portion and shape then by hand to no more than 1 inch thick pâté.
2) Place a griddle pan on medium high heat and brushed with cooking oil. Cook them for 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare burgers or longer if you like it  to be done.
3) Place a small skillet on medium high heat with cooking oil and sauté onions with say sauce and Worcestershire sauce till soft. 
4) Serve burgers with sautéed onion and freshly sliced carrots lettuce sprinkled with balsamic vinegar if you like.

  23. these burgers look delicious and I'm sure would be a winner in my house! I received an award the other day - the versatile bloggers award - one of the rules is to past it on to another blogger who is relatively new and has less than 100 followers - I would LOVE to past it on to you! I can't see your email in your contact. If you would like it please contact me!
