How to cook the minced beef patties
For those who have never cooked minced beef patties, we will talk about how this is done. We need ingredients:
- beef (better than veal) - about 1 kilogram;
- one onion;
- garlic - 1 clove;
- high-calorie mayonnaise - 150 mg;
- one egg;
- potatoes - 1 piece;
- several pieces of white bread;
- milk - about 200 ml;
- vegetable oil;
- black pepper.
Minced meat preparation
We will cook using the recipe for ground beef patties, which has become a classic. First, scroll through the meat grinder. It will be better if you scroll through it two or three times. Then the particles of minced meat will become smaller, and, accordingly, the cutlets will be softer. Onions, too, scroll through the meat grinder. Before this, it should be cleaned and cut into 4 or 6 parts. Ground beef cutlets are best obtained by adding white flour bread to the ground beef. Bread free from crusts, soaked in milk. When the whole crumb gets wet, squeeze it and scroll through the meat grinder too. After that, we will deal with potatoes. Peeled vegetable grind on a grater with the smallest divisions.Put the resulting pulp in the mince, with the extra juice should be drained. Using a garlic press, chop the garlic and add it to the stuffing. Then take the egg, separate the yolk from the protein. We need only the protein part, whisk it with a whisk until foam appears. The yolk is not used, it will give excessive hardness to the dish.
Combine the ingredients
You can already minced meat, onions, bread, potatoes and garlic together in a meat grinder. Then add the prepared egg white, mayonnaise, salt and ground pepper. The stuffing should be thoroughly mixed to achieve complete uniformity.
We make minced beef patties
To mince does not stick to the hands, it is necessary to moisten them a little in cold water. So, with wet hands, take a piece of minced meat and roll it into a ball. Then gradually flatten it to a thickness of 1-1.5 cm. Do not be afraid that the finished burgers will be thin. In the process of frying, they "gather" - will become thicker, but less. Try to fashioned cutlets were similar. You can give them the shape of a circle or an oval - this is not fundamental.
Put the ground breadcrumbs in the plate.We roll a raw patty in them, sprinkling it on top and turning it over.
Fry the ground beef burgers
Take a large pan. Pour vegetable oil in such quantity that semi-finished meat products can be submerged in it by half. In hot oil, put the patties. First, fry for a short time on high heat, then reduce the flame to medium. Turn over, fry on the other side. It is better to cook with the lid ajar. So the minced beef burgers stew a little from the inside, and the hot oil does not splash the kitchen. Put the prepared dish on paper towels and let it drip off excess oil. Then we shift on a plate.
Pork and Beef Cutlets
They are prepared similarly. The ingredients will remain the same, they only add pork (half a kilo). Stuffing consisting of two kinds of meat is preferable. Pork will give softness and juiciness to cutlets. And beef neutralizes fat. In this case, add mayonnaisedo not. But the egg can be added using both the yolk and protein. The rest of the cooking method is exactly the same as the beef cutlets.
