  2. Place the beef mince, onion, ginger, chilli and Worcestershire sauce in a large mixing bowl.

Top tips:

  • If preferred replace the ginger with 1-2 x 15ml curry powder and the Worcestershire sauce with mango chutney.
  • To prevent the burgers breaking up during cooking on the barbecue, place on a sheet of aluminium foil over the barbecue grill.
  • Serve the burgers in rolls garnished with salad leaves, finely shredded chilli strips and a spoonful of your favourite prepared relishes and potato wedges.
