The name says it all! We stand behind the great taste and simplicity (it only takes 15 minutes to prepare) of our triple-tested best burger recipe.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp regular or Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 500 g medium ground beef


  • Preheat barbecue to medium. In a large bowl, whisk egg with mustard, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Crumble in beef and gently mix together. Shape into 4 burgers, each about 1 in. thick. Using your thumb, make a shallow depression in centre of each. This helps the patties keep their shape during cooking.
  • Oil grill. Barbecue burgers, with lid closed, until cooked through, 6 to 8 min per side.

Kitchen tip: Why medium ground beef? The extra fat in the medium ground beef will drip off while grilling, but keep your burgers from getting dry while they cook.
