Welcome to my new follower via Bloglovin - Kim Chapman.
Following on from my chilli con carne, here is what happened with the remaining 150g of minced steak. Our butcher calls it minced steak rather than minced beef as their minced beef has a higher fat content!
I used the recipe as per Elaine's instruction here . I used 3 sad looking, pencil thickness leeks finely chopped and brown sauce as we had run out of Worcestershire sauce. Lots and lots of black pepper and a little salt went into them. As we had them with vegetables and chilli gravy, we couldn't really tell if they needed more seasoning. When I make them again, and I will, we shall put celery salt into them to give the mix a possible extra kick.
Elaine suggests rolling in beaten egg and polenta/breadcrumbs. I hate to use an egg up this way if it can be helped (a kickback from our war ration years). We decided to use 1lb of mash rather than 400g and shape the mix into patties, which were covered in seasoned flour and fried in a little oil. TOP TIP - once in the hot oil in the pan, do not move for several minutes to allow the base to colour and firm up.
We got 6 patties (one missing from the picture as I am having it for lunch whilst DB is out).
