A very Australian recipe but easy to adapt by using beef. A very Australian recipe but easy to adapt by using beef.
Number of Servings: 4


    2 tsp Olive Oil
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    40ml Sake (or gin, vodka, white wine)
    3 tsp Dark Miso
    500g Kangaroo Mince (or 98% Fat Free ground beef)
    1/3 cup Oat bran
    1 large egg
    2 tsp sugar
    2 tbs Soy Sauce
    1 tbs Hot Water


Heat oil in small skillet, add onion and sauté over moderate heat until transparent. Remove skillet from heat. Add sake and miso, mixing together until well combined. Set aside to cool further.

In a bowl, combine mince, oatbran and egg plus some freshly ground black pepper. Add onion mix and combine with hands. Work the proteins by picking up meat and trowing against bowl (like baseball into glove) several times. Divide mix into four equal portions. Form each burger into an oval shape and flatten out onto a piece of baking paper (big enough to go slightly up the sides of the frying pan). Set burgers aside to ‘rest’. Burgers can be made the day before and left to rest in the fridge, covered with film.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine ingredients for glaze and microwave to 1 minute. Stir until sugar is dissolved. You may also add 1tsp freshly grated ginger for a slight flavour change.

Heat fry pan to high heat, add burgers on baking paper. Reduce to med-high, cover and cook to 5 minutes. Turn burgers (taking care not to tear paper – if paper is burnt, turn burgers out onto a fresh sheet of paper and put back into pan), pour over glaze, cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Serving Size: 4 burger patties

Number of Servings: 4
