Cooking Method

  1. Using a large pan add your minced beef and onions to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. 
    During cooking, carefully break apart the mince whilst keeping some chunks.  
  2. Once your minced is cooked and your onions of soft, add your tomatoes, beef stock, tomato sauce, BBQ sauce and Worcestershire sauce to the pan and stir together.
    Cook for a further 5 minutes or until the sauce has begun to evaporate (you’re looking for the a ‘sloppy’ style mix).
  3. Once your mince has become sloppy, remove from heat, and set to the side. 
  4. Toast your Bun for 1-2 minutes to get a nice light golden colour.
    Once toasted, add a decent sized spoonful of mince onto the bun, top with cheese and any additional toppings you like on your burger.
