The secret to a good beef patty is freshly ground meat. Ask your butcher to double grind 800 grams of beef shoulder and 200 grams beef fat. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper; mix well with your hands.


Form 5 thick patties or 8 thin ones. Fry or grill over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side for thicker patties, and 3 to 4 minutes for the thinner ones.



Use this recipe to make other delicious dishes. Simply add herbs and spices for sandwiches, wraps, and rice meals.

This packed burger has pure beef patties, chorizo, and bacon!
