Healthy Burgers

Print this Recipe
Serves: 4
900g / 2 lb sirloin (rump) steak or chuck steak
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 white, whole grain, or whole wheat rolls, halved
4 lettuce leaves
1 beefsteak tomato, sliced
condiments (relishes) of your choice
French fries (optional)
Serve with sweet potato fries for a healthier alternative to French fries.

Cut the beef into chunks and remove any gristle, but leave on the fat. Tip the beef into a food processor and chop briefly to grind (mince). Season with pepper and divide into 4 portions. Form each portion into a burger about 8cm / 3 1/4 inches in diameter.

Preheat the broiler (grill) or barbecue. Broil (grill) the burgers for 4-6 minutes on each side-a couple of minutes longer if you prefer them well done. Allow the burgers to rest for a couple of minutes, then top each burger with a slice of cheese and broil (grill) briefly until the cheese is just melted.

Put a lettuce leaf on the bottom of each roll. Top with a slice of tomato, a slice of cheese, and a burger. Add condiments (relishes) of your choice if liked, and add the top of the roll. Serve with French fries and salad.
