  • 1 ½ lb 500g lean ground beef, washed and drained
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tsp of parsley
  • 2 tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tsp of himalayan pink salt


  • Spray or coat the air fryer basket evenly with oil (coconut or cooking spray) and set aside
  • Prepare the food processor ready to use by fitting it with an S blade.
  • Add the ground beef and sprinkle in the seasoning - parsley, black pepper and pink salt.
  • Pulse the beef so it combine with the seasoning into a more smooth texture.
  • Remove the S blade and tip the patty mixture out onto some parchment paper
  • Roll the mixture into 4-6 even balls (depending the size you want your burgers to be)
  • Flatten and shape into discs then add each one to the air fryer basket leaving a space not to overcrowded (you may need to cook the patties in batches).
  • Lightly spray/coat the tops of the patties with oil
  • Switch the air fryer on manual, select temperate 180c (356F) for 8 minutes.
  • Serve accordingly


  • Ensure hands are washed prior to forming the patties to omit cross contamination
  • Hands should be cold not warm to avoid the burger mix becoming too sticky.
  • Use low fat, lean beef (5% or less) to decrease the patties from shrinking.
  • Use a food processor to breakdown the meat and to evenly combine the seasoning.
  • Roll the mix into rolls first so each patty will be the same size and cook for the same length of time.
  • Any uncooked patties should be refrigerated or frozen until further use.
  • If freezing the patties separate them with parchment paper
