Chef Jamie Robertson at Gaucho ‘This is a classic burger recipe and a really popular dish at Gaucho. Use quality beef from Argentina if you can get it; if not, buy Aberdeen Angus – both make fantastic burgers. Basting with chimichurri oil while grilling keeps the meat moist and gives it a spicy tang.’
Ingredients 150g minced beef 1 brioche bun 2 teaspoons of chimichurri oil or mild chilli oil 1 tbsp (heaped) chipotle or spicy tomato chutney 1 tbsp grape mustard mayonnaise 3 baby gem lettuce leaves 3 slices of plum tomato 1 slice of Spanish onion 1 banana shallot A pinch of good-quality sea salt A pinch of table salt and pepper
Method 1 Dice the shallots and mix with the minced beef. Season with table salt and pepper and form into a patty.
