Double-chili burgers

Andreas Trauttmansdorff


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 kg ground beef , preferably medium
  • 3 green onions , thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium-high. In a bowl, stir chili sauce with chili powder and salt. Crumble in meat. Add onions. Using your hands or a fork, gently mix. Shape into 8 burgers, each about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick. To prevent burgers from puffing up when grilling, use your thumb to make a shallow depression in centre of each. Place on grill. Barbecue with lid closed until burgers are cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Delicious tucked into warm buns with slices of tomato and grilled onions and a slice of cheese.

The secret to any great burger? Use medium, not the usual lean, ground beef. Then you can pass on the egg-and-bread-crumb routine.
