Another version of Biftekia, the way a friend thought me how to do it. 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.

Greek burgers, 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
  • Salt
  • Pepper


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!
