Cannot tahan tengok juicy and thick beef burger on pinterest, I decided to made my own burger patties. I did google here and there for good beef patties recipes before come up with my own recipe. For my first attempt, I grilled these patties on nonstick pan and gave to my husband and parents for tasting. They love it. Everyone had atleast 2 burgers for lunch on that day.
So when my mom told me that we having a family bbq dinner on last Raya Haji, I immediately suggested to made beef patties for the bbq. I prepare everything at my mom's before brought a full load of tupperware to my aunty's. (which just across my house haha)
One thing that I love cooking at my mom's are she have almost everything I need. I don't need major groceries shopping for this.
Beside my cousin's pavlova, my grilled beef patties are the hit that night. Everyone line up and patiently waiting for the patties to ready and fully grilled. I heard my husband and brother ate 4 beef patties!!
