Ingredients

  • For the burger patties
  • 1kg ground chuck
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2cm root ginger, grated
  • 20ml Worcester sauce
  • 2ml soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp oats
  • salt and pepper
  • a little oil for frying
  • For the Raka Shiraz Chutney
  • 10ml olive oil
  • 8 onions, sliced
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 100ml Raka Biography Shiraz (or Shiraz of choice)
  • 100ml red wine vinegar

Instructions

  1. For the chutney, heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions and gently fry for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.
  2. Add the sugar and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  3. Add the wine and vinegar and gently cook until all the liquid has evaporated and the onion mixture is soft and sticky. (The chutney can be refrigerated for 4-5 days.)
  4. Combine all the burger ingredients in a large bowl, mix well with fingertips but don’t overwork the meat as this will make it tough.
  5. Form into 6 patties. Fry the patties over a medium to high heat for about 2-3 minutes on either side, or till done to your liking.
  6. Serve the patties with rocket, mature cheddar, sliced tomato and the Raka Shiraz chutney.
