Minced Beef Burgers in a Brown Sauce

This is a recipe my mom used to make and always takes me back to my childhood. Good and wholesome home cooking is the best.

1 kg minced meat, (beef 10%)

1 onion, thinly sliced

3 slices of bread

1 egg

2dl milk

2 tsp allround spice

salt and pepper

300ml beef stock

1dl simple cream

flour to dust

Put the bread in a foodprosessor and pulse until you have fine crumbs. Put the breadcrumbs in a bowl and add the milk and egg. Mix well together.

Add the minced meat and allround spice to the bowl and mix well with your hands. Salt and pepper to taste.

Make 9 – 10 burgers and set them aside. Add the sliced onion and a drizzle of olive oil to a hot pan and fry them until brown. Then remove the onion from the pan and set aside.

Dust the beef burgers in some flour , the flour will thicken the sauce and give the burgers a nice texture. Fry them in a little butter on both sides on a hot pan.

Add the onion back to the pan and then add the stock. Let simmer for 3 minutes. Add the cream to the sauce and stir.

Serve with some boiled potatoes.
