– 500g minced lamb
– 2 tbsp olive oil
– 1 onion, peeled and chopped
– 1 garlic clove, crushed
– 1 small green pepper, diced into small cubes
– 350ml passata
– 4 tbsp ketchup (normal or spicy)
– 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
– 1 level tbsp brown sugar (optional)
– 1 tsp strong mustard
– 100ml water
– Salt and freshly ground black pepper
– Tabasco, optional
– 8 small hamburger rolls (or 6 large ones)
– 6 to 8 small slices cheddar cheese
1. Pour the oil into a large pan and add the lamb, onion, garlic and green pepper. Fry over a high heat, break up the mixture with a spatula to stop large clumps forming.
2. After browning well, add the passata, ketchup, Worcester sauce, brown sugar, mustard, and 100 ml water. Blend together and leave to simmer for 20 minutes over a gentle heat. Season with salt and black pepper and a little Tabasco, if you wish.
3. Heat the bread rolls in the oven or in a toaster. Fill them with the mixture, add a slice of cheddar and put a lid on.
4. Serve with potato wedges and a nice salad.
Tip: unlike other burgers, this one should be eaten with a knife and fork!
