  • 500 gram minced meat - لحم مفروم
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard - مسطردة ديجون
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce - صوص ورشيسترشير
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper - فلفل أسود
  • 4 medium bread (burger buns) - خبز
  • 6 tablespoon tahini - طحينة
  • 3 tablespoon vinegar - خل
  • 1 small lime - ليمون بلدي
  • 1/2 cup water - ماء
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin - كمون
  • 1 pinch salt (or to taste) - ملح
  • 16 slice pickled cucumber - خيار مخلل
  • 4 leaves lettuce - خس
  • 1 drizzle olive oil - زيت زيتون

Step by step

  1. Mix the beef with the mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Divide the meat into 4 and shape each quarter into a round burger patty.
  2. Cover them, and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. To prepare the tahini, stir in 6 tablespoons of tahini in a bowl, then add the vinegar and the lime. Keep adding water bit by bit while stirring, until you reach the right consistency. (Don't make it too runny.) Add cumin and salt to taste.
  4. To cook the burger, pat every burger with a little oil and season with a little salt. Heat your grilling pan and cook the burgers on medium heat for a few minutes on each side. Do not try to press the burger to flatten them, they will lose all their juices. It's also best to flip the burger only once.
  5. To build the burger, spread tahini on the bun base, add 2 slices of pickles followed by the hot burger. Pile more pickles, lettuce and tahini then add the bun top and press gently. Serve immediately.
