Tzatziki Beef Burgers with Tomato Salad

Tzatziki Beef Burgers with Tomato Salad



  • 450 g (1 lb) lean minced Scotch Beef

  • 1 large red onion, halved

  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli dipping sauce

  • 16 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • A quarter cucumber, deseeded and diced

  • 150 g carton 0% fat Greek yoghurt

  • 3 tbsp freshly chopped coriander

  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped mint

  • 4 burger buns, split in half and lightly toasted

Cooking Method

  1. Place the minced beef in a large bowl. Finely chop or grate half the onion, add to the beef with the chilli sauce and 2 tbsp chopped coriander. Let clean little fingers work the mixture together well.
  2. Divide the mixture into four and shape into burgers.
  3. Meanwhile finely slice the second onion half, mix with the tomatoes and remaining coriander. Chill until required.
  4. Mix together the cucumber, yoghurt and chopped mint. Chill until required.
  5. Preheat the grill to hot. Place the burgers on a foil lined grill pan and cook for 6 minutes on each side.
  6. Place the hot burger on the bun, spoon some cooling yoghurt tzatziki alongside and top with the bun lid. Enjoy with the tomato salad.

Lightly toast then split open a pitta bread forming a pocket to stuff in chunks of the burger, tzatziki and salad.
