Prep Time:

Cook Time:




600g beef mince

2 tbsp tomato paste

6 tbsp Jacoub’s Hamburger Seasoning

2 tbsp olive oil

4 canned pineapple rings, drained

4 eggs

2 iceberg lettuce leaves, shredded

2/3 cup beetroot relish

4 damper rolls, split

1 tomato, sliced


1. Combine mince, tomato paste and Jacoub’s Hamburger Seasoning in a bowl. Divide and shape mixture into four 1cm-thick patties. Place onto a baking paper-lined plate. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil on a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook patties for 4 to 5 minutes each side until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil.

3. Meanwhile, cook pineapple for 1 to 2 minutes each side on the hotplate. Afterwards, cook eggs to your liking.

4. Arrange burger & serve with extra beetroot relish on the side.

Pro Tip

It’s much easier to work with raw mince if your hands are wet – it stops stickiness and eases the molding process.
