These burgers aren't made from beef, but from kangaroo. It's hard to describe, I guess you'll just have to try it.

4 people made this

IngredientsServes: 8

  • 900g minced kangaroo meat
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 sandwich rolls or burger buns, split
  • 8 leaves lettuce
  • 8 thick slices tomato

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:10min ›Ready in:25min

  1. Mix the kangaroo, onion, caraway seed, thyme, egg and lemon zest together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. If mixture is too wet and sticky add breadcrumbs. Shape the mixture into 8 balls and flatten.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook the burgers in the hot oil until the burgers are cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 70 degrees C. Serve the burgers on the split buns with lettuce and tomato.

Kangaroo meat

I made these with venison (deer meat) and the family liked them cooked on the bbq outside. I left out the caraway seed because I cannot stomach it.-22 Sep 2009

Lipton Onion Soup Burger Recipe

Looking for a fool-proof way to flavor your burgers? This Lipton Onion Soup burger recipe is the answer.

There are hundreds of ways to season burgers. Some stick to just salt and pepper, while some add other flavors, such as Worcestershire sauce and mustard.

But the thing is, you won&rsquot find out if you&rsquove seasoned your burgers perfectly until after you&rsquove cooked them. If your burgers are too salty, there&rsquos no way to fix them!

That&rsquos where Lipton Onion Soup comes in. With this nifty little packet, there&rsquos no need to worry about under- or over-seasoning. You&rsquoll get perfectly flavored burgers every time.

So what are you waiting for? Put on your apron and fire up the grill, it&rsquos time to make burgers!


In the video that accompanied the recipe, Brown was precise (cryptically so) that the burgers should each be 5 ounces.

I don't own a scale — I don't believe in them — so I simply prayed that eyeballing my measurements would be accurate enough.

Other than that, this is a straightforward recipe. I just mixed the meats with a little salt in a small bowl then I formed a patty.

I was dubious that this recipe didn't require any pepper. But if there's one person I trust to cook using only one kind of seasoning, it's Brown.


How To Make A White Castle Slider Recipe

Mince a small to medium onion, I like sweet like a Vidalia. You want it minced fairly fine.

On a baking tray mix three pounds ground beef with diced small onion and kosher salt and pepper. No need to over mix, just get the onion distributed evenly. Then press down with your hands to make as level as possible, pushing the meat to the edge of the baking tray.

You’ll see in the picture below that I used parchment paper to keep the burgers from sticking to the tray. Now that I’ve made the White Castle slider recipe a few times, I’ve discovered that the bottom piece of parchment paper is not necessary.

Mix the White Castle slider meat mixture directly on the baking tray, no need to dirty another bowl

Cover the meat with a piece of parchment paper and use another baking tray to gently press down on the mixture, this ensures an even layer all the way across making the meat cook evenly.

Gently press the meat mixture out to the sides and corners of the baking tray

Remove the extra tray and parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated 425 degree oven or until done to your liking.

Use a second baking tray and press gently to ensure all the sliders are the same thickness

If you want the sliders to have a char then turn up the heat to broil, place the tray on the top shelf and broil until you like the color. Personally, the sliders are between the bun and you really don’t see or taste the char. Broilers for me are a dangerous thing because I tend to get distracted and then burn whatever is in the broiler. Plus White Castle steams, not chars.

Remove the second baking tray and parchment paper and you’ll now have even thickness sliders

While the White Castle slider recipe is cooking, split and place the buns place open face on the second tray. Put a slice of American cheese on each bun.

Place cheese on buns while the sliders cook

Remove sliders from the oven and cut with a spatula, place on buns. Hint: hold a bun over the tray to determine where to cut the sliders, you want them to fit the bun. Typically you’ll get 15 sliders.

Hold a bun over the sliders to determine how large to cut the burgers, you want them to fit the bun size

Finish the sliders by placing the top bun on the burger, cover tray with foil and return to the oven for a minute or so to steam the buns and melt the cheese.

Here is another classic method of preparing Australian burgers in simple and easy way.

Ingredients

  • 400g plant-based mince, or cheap beef mince
  • 4 slices tasty cheese
  • 2 slices tinned pineapple
  • 4 thick rashers of bacon, halved
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper, to season
  • 1 whole cooked small beetroot, sliced, or 4 slices tinned beetroot
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 roma tomato, thinly sliced into rounds
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise, to serve
  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce, to serve

Preparation Method

Step-1: Firstly, make the mince into four equal portions and season with pepper and salt. After seasoning, roll them into small balls without giving much pressure. A light pressure is enough to make them flattened and thin patties, about 1cm thick in diameter. They might look larger than your regular burger buns but do not worry, they get shrink after cooking. Rest the patties in the freezer for about ten to fifteen minutes.

Step-2: This is a kind of preparation step, which you can also keep it ready before you start making burgers. Slice the pineapple horizontally into half in order to create thin rings. To remove excess water and moisture, transfer the beetroot and pineapple on to a piece of absorbent paper. Absorbent paper works well in removing excess water.

Step-3: On medium heat or flame, heat a frying pan (skillet) or hot plate, add required amount of olive oil. Get the pineapple rings and fry them for a couple of minutes flipping both sides until they turn brown. Dish out the fried pineapple rings and add bacon. Cook bacon until it is cooked nicely or until it turns brown. Remove the fried cooked bacon from the pan and add the urger patties and let it cook for three to four minutes on each side.

Step-4: Keep the ready by slicing them into half or cut-side down. Put these buns directly on the hot plate or frying pan until toasted. It might take three to four minutes until it gets toasted.

Step-5: Bring the eggs into picture. Fry the eggs for about four to five minutes over medium flame until the white part is set and the yolk still looks runny.

Step-6: Slather a little mayonnaise to the base of another bun. Add lettuce and any other green salads before you place the burger patty on to the bun. Now cover the burger patty with bacon, beets, tomato, pineapple, egg, and finally with barbeque sauce. Lock the top of the bun with a skewer. Serve immediately as hot. Yummy delicious Australian Burger with the lot is ready to melt in your mouth.

Tip: Whatever the recipe or preparation method you follow, keep this small but very helpful tip in handy i.e. before you start layering with lettuce, beets, tomato, etc. spread the bun bases with butter, which helps to keep or assemble the fillings together and compactly.

Australian Ham Burger is worth to try out and hinge-up your jaw to enjoy the taste ypou ever had from any burger from any locality. Happy cooking!


  • 28 ounces freshly ground beef (preferably the Blue Label Burger Blend ground chuck will do)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices cheese (I recommend American or cheddar)
  • 4 soft hamburger buns, lightly toasted
  • Toppings and condiments as desired

Preheat broiler to high. Divide meat into four equal 7-ounce portions and gently shape each one into a patty 4.5-inches wide by approximately 3/4-inch thick. Place on flat surface and create a dimple in the center of the patty by pushing down with three or four fingers. The dimple should be about 1/4 of an inch deep and 3 inches across. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Place patties on foil-lined broiler pan and position so that tops of patties are 2 1/2 to 3 inches below the broiler elements or flame. Broil for 3 minutes until top is well browned and begging to char. Flip patties and continue to broil until center reads 130 degrees on an instant read thermometer for medium-rare, about 3 minutes longer. Adjust cooking time if you want them more or less cooked.

Top each patty with a slice of cheese, place back under broiler for 25 seconds to melt, place on buns, top as desired, and serve.


Indoor-Grilled Burger

Many people think that the best burger is cooked outside on the grill. But this burger recipe, made on a countertop grill or grill pan on the stove, proves them wrong. With some simple additions and techniques, you can have a great burger that is grilled indoors.

Part of its flavor comes from adding a few key ingredients to the ground beef, such as an egg. Also critical to this burger's success? Lightly toasting the bun in the pan you used to cook the burgers, to soak up all the delicious juices.

If you opt to use leaner meats like lean ground beef, bison, or turkey, adding eggs, Worcestershire sauce, and molasses will make your burgers juicier and more flavorful. Using a grill pan or countertop grill allows you to mimic the char you get on an outdoor grill, which adds to the grilled flavor.

Another trick is dimpling the burger before you grill it. The patty will contract as it cooks and this keeps it flatter without a hump in the middle.

As with any burger, it's up to you how rare or well done you want your meat. Although there are risks of bacteria when meat is too rare, sometimes with this recipe leaving a little pink in the middle makes it extra tasty. For the well-done crowd, leave your burger on the grill for an additional 2 to 3 minutes to give it that extra sear that mimics an outdoor-grilled burger.

Islak Burgers

This dish is very near and dear to my heart. When living in İstanbul, I ended many late nights out on İstiklal Street with an ıslak hamburger at the bustling Taksim Square. Literally translated to &ldquowet hamburger,&rdquo for 6 liras (about .80 USD), you can get a modest hamburger, bathed, buns and all, in a delicious tomato garlic sauce, and set to steam in a glass display case until a hungry pedestrian snatches it up. Islak hamburgers were my last meal in Istanbul and is one of my first meals every time I return for a visit.

With the addition of breadcrumbs, egg, parsley and other seasonings, this burger patty recipe differs from the all-beef American burger patties you may be used to because the patties take inspiration more from köfte, Turkish meatballs, than American hamburgers. However, I have accounted for American preferences by doubling the size of the burger so that it&rsquos filling enough for a meal.

Kızılkayalar Hamburger, a family-operated business to this day, claims to have invented this dish almost 50 years ago in 1972 at their Taksim Square location. Considering that İstanbul was founded almost 2,700 years ago, this is a relatively modern dish that has still managed to gain widespread popularity. Today you can find places serving ıslak hamburgers all over the country.

So if you can&rsquot hop on a flight to Turkey tonight, maybe go for the next best thing and whip up some ıslak hamburgers. Afiyet olsun!

&bullThe original Turkish version doesn&rsquot call for a specific type of bun, but I think choosing a softer bread (like brioche, potato, or Hawaiian) would allow the buns to soften a lot faster once steamed.

&bullRaw ground beef should be stored in the refrigerator for no longer than two days, so plan your grocery store visit or delivery accordingly.

&bullFor the ground beef, an 80/20 meat-to-fat ratio is ideal. Leaner cuts may result in a dry, crumbly patty.

&bullWhen forming the patties, use chilled meat and avoid overworking and overheating the mixture. If the mixture is too warm, the fat starts melting, and tends to stick to your hands and work surfaces, instead of staying in the burger.

&bullDo not add salt to the ground beef mixture season it as close to cooking as possible. If you salt too early, the salt breaks down the proteins in the meat, and results in denser, tougher patties.

&bullMake a thumbprint-sized dent in the center of the patty to avoid having the center bulge too much as it cooks.

&bullOnly flip the burger once. You should be able to nudge it slightly with your spatula to test if it is ready to flip. If it still seems to be a little stuck on the pan, it&rsquos not ready yet. A very hot cast iron or stainless steel pan should help quickly create a sear.

&bullYou can prepare the patties a few hours ahead of time and keep them tightly wrapped and refrigerated. Don't allow ground meat to sit at room temperature, growing bacteria.

&bullIf you have a panini press or George Foreman grill, you can actually cook this more like the ıslak hamburgers you&rsquod find at Kızılkayalar Hamburger. On high heat, baste both sides of the grill plates in butter or margarine. Then place a dry bottom bun with a raw patty on top and press the grill closed to cook one side of the patty. Once one side is cooked, flip the patty over and press the grill closed again to cook the other side. When both sides are cooked, slather the tomato sauce on top of the patty and then add the top bun. Brush the top bun in melted butter. Quickly press the grill closed so there are grill marks on the top burger bun and then set the burgers to steam in the pan of water and parchment paper set up.
