Make herb butter before preparing meat mixture to give it sufficient time to firm in the refrigerator.
1 1/2 pound (750 g) ground beef (mince)
1 onion, finely chopped
Oil for shallow frying
3 ounces (90 g) butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1. Combine beef and onion, divide mixture into 8 portions. Enclose teaspoonfuls of herb butter in center of each beef portion, shape into burgers. Fry in hot oil on both sides until browned and cooked through.
Herb Butter: Process softened butter, garlic, herbs and cheese until smooth. Place butter in bowl, cover, refrigerate.
