Makes: 4Prep Time: 5 minutesCook Time: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  •  
  • 450g 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon California Prune purée
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and warmed
  • Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and condiments (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the beef and California Prune purée; mix lightly but thoroughly.
  2. For best flavour and appearance, form and cook patties immediately after mixing meat mixture: lightly shape into four 1.5cm-thick patties.
  3. Heat a large non-stick skillet for about 2 minutes over medium heat until hot.
  4. Place the patties in the skillet; cook for 10-12 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in the centres and the juices run clear. Season with salt and pepper after turning.
  5. Serve burgers in buns with lettuce, tomato and condiments, if desired.

Tip: Patties also can be broiled or grilled:

  • To broil, place patties on rack of broiler pan so surface of meat is 8-10cm from the heat. Broil for 9-12 minutes to medium done-ness, until no longer pink in centres and the juices run clear, turning once.
  • To grill, place patties on a grid over medium ash-covered coals. Grill for 10-13 minutes to medium done-ness, until no longer pink in centres and the juices run clear, turning once..

To make California Prune purée:

  • In food processor container, combine 2/3 cup (100g) pitted California Prunes and 3 tablespoons water and blitz until finely chopped.
