Meat Patties


(10 pieces)

  • 60 g (1/4 cup) lean beef, ground and half steamed
  • 90 g (1 medium-sized) potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 stalk spring onion, chopped
  • Oil for shallow frying
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix beef and potatoes together. Add salt, pepper and spring onion.
  2. Shape into firm patties.
  3. Dip patties into egg mixture.
  4. Immediately place patties into a pre-heated pan and pan-fry with low heat until golden brown. This is to ensure the patties do not turn burn before they are well-cooked.
  5. Place cooked patties on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
