  • To make sure we got our hands on the best hamburger recipe possible we spoke to Tom Barton, co-founder of Honest Burger. Their signature hamburger recipe is made with prime cuts of high-quality beef for the perfect taste and texture.

    In the video below Tom explains why they go to the effort of chopping their beef, instead of the usual mincing method that the majority of burger makers follow. Served simply with shredded lettuce, Honest Burger’s signature balsamic onion chutney and a whole heap of rosemary-salted chips – this hamburger recipe is the perfect thing to impress friends with.

    This burger recipe serves seven people but can easily be scaled up or down depending on how many people you’re feeding. The ratios you need are 80% chuck to 20% rib cap.


    • 800g chuck steak
    • 200g rib cap beef
    • 7 glazed burger buns, sliced in half
    • 1 little gem lettuce, shredded
    • 4tbsp onion chutney
    • Chips, to serve
