Just burgers

Right. I love burgers. Homemade ones are like, the easiest thing to make and most of the time you have all the trimmings to go with them at home already. In my early days of cooking I put breadcrumbs and egg in mine, and added a load of spices in the mixture, and grated onion and mixed it all around.
Lately, with my allergy towards ordinary flours, I've skipped the breadcrumbs, and also the egg. Also, a friend at work told me to shape the burgers and only season on the outside.
The other day I watched a programme they are showing in Sweden, "Grillmästarna", which translates into Barbeque Masters or something like that. That episode was all about burgers and the one thing they repetedly said was to not over work the mixture. You don't even need to add anything to it. Just meat and season on the surface. So I tried it yesterday. OH MY LIFE! They were so juicy and thick and meaty and yummy!
~400g beef mince or minced chuck (högrev)
Salt and black pepper
A fun kind of salad - rocket, spinach or something that gives a bit of taste
Fresh or pickled cucumber
Onion - red, yellow, raw or fried in a bit of butter
A tasty cheese to crumble, slice or place on the burgers
Sweet chili sauce
Hamburger dressing
Sambal oelek
Bread - ANY KIND! I love to put a normal breadbun in a sanwich grill and toast it a bit, or just take two slices of something at home. Or just eat in a leaf of iceberg salad. Or just eat it without. I used to slices of glutenfree bread that I toasted a little.
How to:
Wet a chopping board slightly.
Wet your hands.
Grab the amount of mince you need for one burger.
Shape it carefully into the shape you wish, round is the obvious choice, haha.
Flatten it a little, but don't pound it.
Repeat with the rest of the mince.
Season with salt and black pepper on both sides.
Heat your pan up to a medium high heat.
Add oil so it only just covers the surface of the pan - the meat contains fat enough.
Place your burgers in the pan.
If you are using beef or chuck you can choose if you want it a bit pink in the middle.
If you are using pork - cook all the way through!
When the burgers and flipped and done on both sides, put the cheese on top and let melt whilst you prepare your bread and extras.
