  • 2 slices bread, soaked in water for 10 minutes
  • 2 pounds minced beef or pork
  • 1 large grated onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • Some chopped parsley
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 lemon, to garnish


  1. Squeeze excess moisture from the bread and discard the crusts. Mix together all the ingredients, in a bowl, by hand. Let this mixture stand for half an hour if you have the time.
  2. Make large, round, flattened hamburgers and grill under a hot grill, approximately 3 minutes on each side; or even better place them on an oiled grid and barbecue them approximately 5 to 6 minutes on each side, according to the strength of the fire. They should be slightly undercooked inside and moist; turn them over once, but do not let them get scorched.
  3. Serve with quartered lemons on the side of the platter, with a fresh salad.
