Cooking Time:

< 15 min

Cooking Style:



500 g minced beef
1 small onion, grated
1 clove garlic, crushed
20 ml braai salt
45 ml finely chopped parsley
5 ml dried mixed herbs 
15 ml balsamic vinegar 
4 thick slices LANCEWOOD® Mozzarella


Mix together the mince, onion, garlic, braai salt, parsley, mixed herbs and balsamic vinegar. Shape into 8 balls. Flatten each ball and place a slice of cheese on top of 4 of the flattened balls (the cheese slice should be a little smaller than the meat pattie - trim cheese slice accordingly if necessary.)  Place the other 4 flattened balls on top and press the edges closed to join. This will flatten it - reshape into a thicker hamburger pattie once the edges are sealed.  Brush with olive oil on both sides and fry in a heated griddle pan until done to your liking.  Serve with lettuce, tomato, avocado and bacon on a hamburger roll or for a low carb version, replace the hamburger roll with a fried brown mushroom.

To finish:
Serve with sauce of your choice.

Cook's Notes:
Add a pinch of chilli flakes for a hotter version.
Use lamb mince instead of beef and serve with tzatziki.
