The steak was 620 baht at tops.  Butter tiny amount. 

not being a cheap charlie but how many burgers do you get out of that as that works out to about 15 pounds sterling.

I found it a problem getting decent ground beef in Thailand.  My answer was buying expensive imported beef.  One of the ways I cook it is as a hamburger.  When I go out I here eat chicken or pork.  Eventually Thailand will have a beef industry as it is starting now but most Thais in my experience don't like the smell of beef cooking.

What if you slice the meat loaf and put the slices in a bun, does that make it a burger?

Nope....makes it left over meatloaf on white bread with mayo! Yum

....but makes you twice as fat....lol.....555.

You get the butter to the sizzling point and then slip in the meat to brown for a minute and then transfer it to the oven to finish. 

 

I have a steam convention oven and for a healthy burger I'd superheat the steam to 250 C and bake it for 10 min or so.

Perhaps there are BBQ restaurants with 3 star Michelin rating?  But if there are it's not very many.  Comparing a BBQ grill to a modern oven is like a WW I biplane with today's jet fighter.  I want to taste the meat not cover it up.

ye need to flip them burgers when yer cookin' 'em and that becomes tricky on a BBQ grill...ye need a stove top griddle or a nice cast iron skillet then flip 'em and then slap that muthah, slap that muthuh to get the fat and juices goin'...

 

there are nice middle eastern kofta recipes that can be used in place of a traditional western burger recipe, use a bit of ground lamb with cumin...real nice in a sourdough roll with lettuce, tomato and condiments...my favorite was the 'Bongo Burger' in Berkeley back in the early 70s...buncha iranians with bongos to serenade with the kofta burgers when they weren't conspiring with the mujahedeen to bring down the Shah...

I've got my Australian steak mince, burger buns, proper cheese, mustard and chilli sauce but can't find iceberg lettuce - what would be a good substitute?

Leaf lettuce or mixed greens - Lotus or Tops.  Or it only takes a few weeks to grow leaf lettuce.
