  • 1 To save time and I am a person who doesn't like to wait around, this is order of things.
  • 2 Mix the minced beef together with all condiments and herbs with italian herbs being last item.
  • 3 Roll into a ball and press into a patty, roughly 12 cm in diameter ( 5 inches) and 1.5cm ( 1/2 inch) thick. Beef tends to shrink upon cooking so don't worry about being too big.
  • 4 Store in fridge for 15 minutes. Wash hands. (You can store longer if you like).
  • 5 In the meantime, slice up the onions and tomatoes, leave it in the fridge.
  • 6 After the beef has been marinated 15 minutes, heat up skillet or non stick pan. (medium high).
  • 7 Grill the patty in the skillet or fry in the pan.
  • 8 Flip the patty every 1 min till browning occurs outside.
  • 9 Remove the patty and leave it to rest.
  • 10 Lower the fire and saute the sliced white onions, add 0.5 cup wine to deglaze and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.
  • 11 Saute about 2 minutes till onions slightly soften and caramelized.
  • 12 Turn off the heat but leave the onions inside the skillet/pan.
  • 13 Put 2 sliced tomatoes on the bottom bread and place the patty on top.
  • 14 Scoop in the fried onions on the patty and top it up with another slice or two of tomato.
  • 15 Cover with the top bread and serve with salad to up the health quotient.
