The recipe for the patties makes 10 decent size patties. Use fresh venison mince and freeze the patties for an easy burger meal next time.
For the patties
1.5kg venison mince
1 tsp cumin
½ large onion, diced
3 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
½ tbsp dried thyme
4 cloves garlic, crushed
Mix all the ingredients together then divide into 10 140g balls. Squeeze and shape these into patties and fry or grill on the BBQ.
Scope serve these with rustic buns, a beetroot relish, roasted red capsicum, Swiss cheese, salad and homemade aioli. Dana says it is best matched with a dark IPA, local Croucher Moonride being perfect.
