Hey guys, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I had a pretty active one myself. First playing football for a few hours and then going for a walk and picking up some famous Parkgate Ice Cream! As I say, a treat every so often is certainly a reward worth taking.
The past week has been pretty hectic. I think I went to the gym 4 or 5 times and am starting to really put on some mass again (hopefully in muscle!).
Due to things being so hectic it’s made publishing posts, recipes & videos harder than I would have liked, however that’s going to change and it’s starting right now!
I’ve once again teamed up with the amazing Gold Standard Nutrition company who are full of nutritional ingredients that will not only help your cooking, but will ensure you’ve got enough protein to support your muscle development and other fitness goals. It really is a one-stop shop for gym-goers and fitness enthusiasts.
Today I’m using their Grass Fed Lean Beef Mince which has always been one of my favourites.
People automatically see ‘mince’ and think some form of bolognese, but there’s so much more you can do with this product and today I’m going to show you one very simple alternative, burgers.
I used to always have such a problem forming mince into patties but I’ve learnt to use a combination of beaten egg and breadcrumbs to really bind a mince mixture together. Once that’s been mastered it’s just a choice of what spices and seasoning you prefer!
So I hope you enjoy these Red Onion & Paprika Beef Burgers as much as I did. They’re full of protein and taste delicious. Enjoy!
- 400g Gold Standard Nutrition's Lean Beef Mince
- Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper (for seasoning)
- ½ Red Onion (very finely diced)
- 1 tablespoon Paprika
- 1 tablespoon Ground Cumin
- 1 tablespoon Ground Coriander
- 1 Egg (beaten)
- 4 tablespoons Breadcrumbs
- In a large bowl add the beef mince along with some salt & freshly ground pepper. Season well on both sides.
- Add the diced red onion as well as the paprika, cumin and coriander. Mix well so that the seasoning and spices are distributed evenly.
- Mix in the beaten egg along with the breadcrumbs to help bind the mixture together.
- Pre-Heat the oven to 220C (200C fan-assisted).
- With clean hands grab a handful of the mince mixture and form into balls (squeeze out any excess water to help the mixture bind).
- Place on an oven tray and with three fingers lightly press down on the mince balls to form into patties. Repeat this process with the remainder of the mince.
- Once all of the mince mixture has been used, place the patties into the oven for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes to help cook evenly.
- Serve in buns with some relish or serve open with some sweet potato mash (as shown).
