4-6 People


  • 15 g butter
  • 450 g minced beef
  • 110 g chopped onions
  • 2 tbsp Ballymaloe Country Relish
  • 15 g Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves chopped
  • 1 egg beaten (ideally free range)
  • 55 g flour


Melt the butter in a pan, add the onions, cover and sweat until soft. Allow to cool and then mix in a bowl with all the other ingredients.

Cook a little of the mixture in a pan and taste to check seasoning. Shape into burgers and toss in seasoned flour, patting off excess.

BBQ at a medium heat, turning as required until fully cooked.

Serve on a toasted bun with cheese shavings, lettuce and don’t forget a dollop of Ballymaloe Country Relish. Simply irresistible!
