Homemade Burger

It was my first time to make homemade burger... and my first time to cook something here besides fried egg and spam! 😅

Although, I had to tweak the recipe because I was missing some ingredients, it still turned out well. I think! The twist gave it that distinct Pinoy taste!

Serving Size
2 to 4 pax
Prep Time
10 mins
Cooking Time
5 mins each


  • Ground beef: I used the pure lean beef that we got. For juicier results, the 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio works best
  • Crushed crackers: the perfect binders
    • You can also use Panko bread crumbs
  • Knorr Liquid Seasoning: for that distinct Pinoy taste
    • If you want a deeper beefy, smoky flavor replace this with Worcestershire sauce
  • Egg: binds your ingredients without drying
  • Milk: to soften and tenderize the ground beef
  • Seasonings:
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • Garlic Powder
    • Onion powder
    • other spices of choice (optional)
Unfortunately, I can't give you the proper amounts since I used the tsamba-tsamba, i.e. the guessing game, method!


  1. Dump the ground beef, crushed crackers, egg, Knorr Liquid seasoning, milk, and spices into a large mixing bowl
    • Use your hands (preferrably unwashed for extra flavour 😅) and thoroughly mix ingredients until smooth
  2. Divide the mixture into even balls of hamburger patty mixture
  3. Using a baking sheet, place the patty mix and press them firmly into patties of your desired thickness
    • Remember: These will shrink a bit once cooked, so you want them slightly larger than your buns/bread
    • For thick patties, you want to press a dent in the center so they don’t puff up while cooking
  4. Preheat your grill, pan or skillet to medium heat
  5. Start fryin' or grillin'
    • For best result, only flip your burgers once or twice
