Step 1:

Go easy when mixing in flavourings and shaping the patties. If you firmly press and pack the meat, the texture of the cooked patty will be unappealingly tough.

Step 2:

To form, first lightly dampen your hands with cold water as this will create a barrier preventing the meat from sticking. Now make a loose ball of the meat and set in one hand.

Step 3:

Use your other hand to gently shape the meat into a patty that’s about three quarters of an inch thick, pressing the edges gently to smooth them.

Make a deep dimple in the centre of the patty; it can help prevent the burger from puffing and misshaping during cooking.
