450g / 1lb best minced steak

3 - 4 spring onions, thinly sliced

1 teaspoon ground coriander

3 teaspoons red Thai curry paste

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Olive or sunflower oil

1 large bunch of fresh coriander

Crème fraiche



  • Mix the steak, spring onions, coriander, curry paste, salt and pepper together in a large bowl, using your hands, making sure all the spices are evenly distributed.
  • Wet your hands and shape the mixture into six even sized flat cakes.
  • Preheat a ridged grill pan until very hot. Brush both sides of the burgers with the oil and fry for 2 - 3 minutes on each side. Lift out the burgers as soon as they are cooked, they are best just pink in the middle.
  • Serve the burgers on a bed of fresh coriander leaves with some crème fraiche to accompany.
