Cognac Tomato Sauce – makes 1 ¼ Cups

½ Cup Tomato Sauce

½ Cup Chilli Sauce

¼ Cup Courvoisier

2 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

¼ Tsp Ground Cumin

Pinch Cayenne Pepper

METHOD – Burgers

1. Combine mince, onion, garlic and breadcrumbs in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk eggs with gin, sesame oil, sold and pepper. Foild egg mixture into beef and mix until just combined – over mixing will make tough burgers. Divide mixture into 8 burger patties.

2. Preheat barbecue grill to high.

3. Place burgers over flame and cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until juices run clear. Serve on toasted buns or focaccia bread with Tomato Sauce and all your favourite burger toppings – lettuce, tomato, beetroot, cheese?
