MOO Dahi Beef Burgers

As summer looms, the BBQ beckons and I am always drawn in. Longer days, warmer nights and the smell of charred meat makes entertaining so much more fun.

For my family, a Christmas BBQ is the staple. Lamb chops, sausages, chicken and when we are lucky homemade burgers. While I love cooking a homemade burger, I am an overcooking culprit and often end up with a dry patty.

So I tried adding yoghurt to bind and provide some more moisture to the patty. And oh did it work.

  • ½ brown onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1kg beef
  • 2 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoon MOO Dahi yoghurt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1 – 1 ½ tablespoons salt (to taste)
  • Cook onion and garlic until soft, let cool
  • Mix beef, oregano, BBQ sauce, yoghurt, egg, breadcrumbs and salt until well combined
  • Add onion and garlic
  • Divide the mix up into 8 portions
  • Roll the portions into patties
  • Cook patties on the BBQ or stove top for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on how you like them cooked (be careful of grease)
  • Serve in burger buns with lettuce, tomato, caramelised onions, mustard, tomato sauce, pickles, cheese and bacon (or whatever tickles your fancy – I love it with hummus or tzatziki).

This burger is a perfect holiday recipe and a great option for a fun dinner party or interactive Christmas lunch! I do love DIY meals. It’s more interactive and fun.

Farewell fun yoghurt fact: “The most notable benefit of this yogurt is its capability to either arrest or partially suppress the growth of harmful micro-organisms in our body.”
