I like to use a mix of beef and pork or beef and lamb mince for my burgers as they get juicier. The key to a super juicy burger is to after half of the cooking time put on a lid and let it steam until juicy perfection.
Take out the mince, add spices and the egg and stirr well until all the spices are combined evenly. Let the mince sit in room temperature for 15 minutes before forming four patties and frying them. I made quite thick patties, so they needed about 6-7 minutes per side. I first fried them on both sides in a hot pan until golden, then turned down the heat and put on a lid and let them steam. The result was super duper juicy burger which I topped off with American cheese. Yum!
Today, my dad came to visit us to Tallinn. We walked through Kalamaja to Telliskivi, and visited the saturday fleamarket and after that we went for lunch to F-hoone. I ate the falafel-feta burger and the boys ate the Furger and drank some local beers. I must say, that my previous experiences at F-hoone hasn’t been that good, after the first time I actually filed a complaint, but it was mainly because of the waiter. Now it was a super sweet girl who served us, and I’m happy!
After our lunch, we walked to the old town for coffee, and we ended up in Maiasmokk Kohvik, which is a well-known café in Tallinn.
Well, if anyone would ask me what I’ve done all week, I’d say I’ve been eating like a horse. Been totally spoiling myself and Niklas. For dinner today I made a yummy salad with crispy chorizo, avocado, olives, red onion and other things good. On thursday we celebrated that “hell week” was over, and we treated ourselves with some charcuterie, and yesterday the whole Indian feast. Gosh, I’m about to explode, next week more balanced diet haha! But you got to spoil yourself every once in a while, right? 🙂
