Royal Burgers

I had no idea what to title this post. This is a recipe borrowed from another blog, Kardemumma. She blogs in Swedish - but for those of you who read Swedish, head over to visit her! The original recipe is called Kejsarbiffar. A "biff" is a small flat meatball - kind of a beef patty, or a hamburger. "Kejsar" is the same word as German "kaiser". Hence my lame translation of "Royal Burgers"... Burgers can be flavored in tons of ways, of course, and for this recipe, capers provide the dominant inspiration.

Royal Burgers
From Kardemumma

500 g minced beef
200 ml sour cream
2 tbsp capers
1 small yellow onion, minced
2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
tabasco, a few drops
1 tbsp soy sauce
pinch of white pepper
butter for frying

Mix all ingredients - except for the butter - and shape into small, round, flat patties. Fry in butter until deeply golden and cooked through. Serve with potatoes and veggies.

"Imperial burgers", perhaps?

Just got round to trying these, a perfect office lunch with some fried potatoes (with a little bit of extra parsley) and fried onions, in the traditional Swedish PannbiffMeLök way. :) A bit tangy and very light, compared to regular mince patties. Me like!

Made them yesterday - excellent dish. Surprisingly they were quite light, and not dry at all (thanks to the sour cream?). Will have to make this again.
