The Big Kahuna Burger

February 10, 2021

I can’t help it – I am a fan of ‘pop culture’. Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” came at a pinnacle in my life having changed direction professionally speaking and had spent time with like minded people – Good days!

The Big Kahuna Burger and the talk of burgers feature in the 2nd act of the film. Tonight I wanted to create a healthy burger because I haven’t had one for quite a while and reading the SYN lists I dread to think what else is in the chain bought versions. Time to make my own.


  • 325g minced beef 5% less fat
  • 2tbsp leaf Coriander
  • 2tsp smoked Paprika
  • 1 medium onion
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3 “Babybel” Light cheeses


  1. Place the beef, onion, herbs & spices into a food processor.
  2. Crack the egg in the processor bowl and blitz until you have a paste.
  3. Divide into 3 equal amounts approx 150g each.
  4. Roll the pate with your hands and flatten making a depression in the centre wrap the cheese around it.
  5. Cook cowboy style on a medium heat skillet approx 8 minutes a side
