Some comments on this recipe:

Mince is a mixture of ground up meat. I believe it is mostly cow. The substitution of ground up beef for mince would probably work well, and although I personally have never had ground beef, I believe it is probably extremely similar to mince.

In light of some comments by other noders:

  • Don't "press" the meat on the grill baby! This will squeeze out all the tasty tasty burger juices!
  • Buy the meat from other than a supermarket, and ideally a co-operative farm. Grow the flour for the bread yourself, and if you really want to strike at the heart of capitalism, burn down your local Starbucks. Moreover, become a vegan.
