Recipe for Beef Burgers garnished with blue cheese, apple and baby spinach
800g steak mince
30g baby spinach
1 lemon – juice
1 apple – slice thinly and cover in lemon juice
80g blue cheese
4 burger buns
4 sweet potatoes – cut into wedges
wax/baking paper (from your pantry)
olive oil (from your pantry)
salt and pepper (from your pantry)
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.
Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges and place them on a tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle over a good glug of olive oil (enough to coat) and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 35-40 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
Season the steak mince generously with salt and pepper. Shape the mince into patties – one per person.
Place a large frying on the stove on high heat and pour in a little olive oil. When the pan is hot, add the patties (no overlapping). They should sizzle when they hit the pan (if the pan is hot enough).
Cook the patties for about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Make sure they are nicely browned and cooked through. Keep in mind they will go in the oven to melt the cheese so don’t overcook them.
When done, place the burgers on a baking tray and top with the blue cheese. Set aside.
When the sweet potatoes are ready get them out the oven. Put the grill on and put the cheese topped patties in for 2 minutes for the cheese to melt.
Wipe the pan you used to cook the burgers and toast the buns lightly in the pan.
Serve the burger on the toasted bun with the apple slices and baby spinach and wedges on the side.
