  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl. Using your hands, mix together really well until the texture is thick and paste-like. Form into 8 patties about 3/4in (2cm), and chill until needed.
  2. Heat the barbecue until hot. Cook the beef patties over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side until nicely browned and cooked through, turning only once during cooking.
  3. Serve hot, sandwiched in burger buns, with fresh tomato slices and crispy lettuce.
  • Try using lamb mince instead of beef mince, and add finely chopped fresh mint leaves when you add the parsley.
  • This is a great mixture to prepare ahead. Prepare the meat paste in a bowl, cover, and leave in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
