These days I buy my minced steak mail order from Donald Russell. It's of superb quality and it's often on special offer, six packs for £19.90 last week (you do pay postage unless you spend forty quid). That's as cheap as the three-packs-for-a-tenner in supermarkets, and it really does taste like steak. I use it, among other things, to make the quickest and easiest burgers imaginable. You need to add nothing at all to the mince.
Form one pack of minced steak into six little burgers with your hands. Press them to make them thin in the middle and thickest at the rim. Cook them dry in your best frying pan on the highest heat for absolutely no more than two and a half minutes a side (under two minutes for me). Don't move them around. Have faith. That isn't blood. It's juice.
Done! Great with chips and some cherry tomatoes done for five minutes in the oven with seasoning, olive oil and fresh basil. I prefer to leave the burgers for a few minutes to rest in a warm oven before scoffing, as you would with a steak. You won't bloody BELIEVE how good they are. No salt, no pepper, no onion, no mustard, no nothing!
