Greek burgers or as they say in Greece, biftekia

A favourite from when I used to live in Greece. And in the summer I make Biftekia at least once a week. You pronounce it like beef-TE-kya. They taste really good if you squeeze some fresh lemon juice over them.

Ingredients for 3-4 persons


500 gram minced beef

1 egg

1,2 dl bread crumbs

1-2 garlic cloves, pressed

1 small chopped onion

1/2 dl of chopped parsley

2 table spoons olive oil

1-2 table spoons freshly squeezed lemon juice




1, Mix everything in a big bowl and either stir with a wooden spoon or mix it all with your hands.

2, Form into small  hamburger shapped patties and place on a plate.

3, Either grill them, or use a frying pan.

4, Serve with tzatziki, potato cloves, salad…


Kali orexi as they say in Greece. It means Good appetite. And eating Greek food often means good food. So enjoy!
