For the Beef Patties:

  • 1 pound (450g) ground beef (80/20 mix for best flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

For the Guacamole:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 ripe tomato, seeded and diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (coriander)
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • 4 quality burger buns, halved and toasted
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Sliced tomato
  • Red onion rings

Making the Guacamole:

  1. Halve the avocados, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
  2. Mash the avocados to your desired consistency.

Assembling the Burger:

  2. Layer with lettuce, a slice of tomato, and an onion ring.
  3. Place the grilled beef patty with melted cheese on top.
