Where can I buy cheap-ish paleo beef burgers in the UK?

In my house, we have burgers once a week. I only just checked the ingredients; apparently it has "gluten-free crumb" and the ingredients of that include potato starch and some E number.

We get the burgers from M&S, so I'm guessing the beef is high-quality. Am I worrying too much about the minimal gluten-free crumb, or does anyone else know of a place in the UK to get high-quality, cheap beef burgers?

+1 for the onion and garlic! It really adds to a burger.

And here's me thinking I'm too working-class to go into Waitrose. ;)

Tesco do organic beef mince, two for 5GBP

To make burgers, add a little egg white and your chosen seasoning, let the mince dry out for a day in the fridge, then form into patties - easy peasy

Failing that, go to Waitrose at the end of the day before closing time - a lot of meat goes on sale then :D

You can buy a burger press from either Lakeland Plastics or Robert Dyas. Then buy a few pounds of fresh beef mince from a butcher. Add salt, pepper, perhaps either fresh or dried herbs, and if you want to, a little fried chopped onion or some crushed garlic. Put small handfulls into the press, form into burgers and you're ready to go. They are cheap, infinitely variable and delicious.

I make quite large batches of them and they freeze well.

Also, pork and apple, pork and sage, pork, sage and onion, lamb and mint etc etc etc.

You want fairly fatty mince otherwise they can be dry - the fat adds succulence!

And if you feel adventurous, exactly the same "recipe" with a pound of minced pork liver and a beaten egg mixed in, will make a splendid "pate" if you put it in a fat or bacon lined container, put that in a roasting tin with boiling water half way up the container and bake in an oven heated to 180?? C for about 40 / 60 minutes; until the meat shrinks away from the side of the container.

I forgot to say you could also ask a local butcher! I have bought from mine in Oxford and he doesn't charge much different than what it costs me when i make my own plus the butcher can always tell you the exact ingredients! They usually seem happy to haggle too so maybe buy a load and freeze them?

Hope this helps!

Hi i make my own! It's even nice to occasionally use lamb or turkey mince for something a little different :)

Buy minced (ground) beef and make your own. That way there's no crumb.
