CapeCook - Rustic  South African Food

My own version of the burger is very close to skinless boerewors, and does not contain anything but meat and spices.


1Kg Ground Beef

500g Ground Pork

25g Salt

10g Fine Coriander

5g Ground Black Pepper

2g Ground Cloves

2g Ground Nutmeg

25ml Brown Vinegar.


Mix together everything and form patties


100ml BBQ sauce

15ml Olive oil

Mix together olive oil and BBQ sauce

I prefer to cook mine on either the coals or gas braai, for a quick lunch the gas braai is perfect. Brush the patties with the BBQ/Olive oil mix before putting them on the grill, and do so every time you turn them. I prefer mine medium, and when I turn the patties the last time, I add slices of cheese on top of the patties and close the lid of the braai to allow the cheese to melt.

Once the patties are done, all that is left to do, is to butter a hamburger roll, add some sliced tomato, pickles and lettuce and then add a patty on top and enjoy.
