    I can appreciate the purist approach! I am happy to go either extreme, it is also fun to experiment with combinations of spices.

      I like trying different spices but it usually ends up disgusting. I need to read up on proper combinations rather than just throwing stuff in on a whim lol.

        IIRC the beef in UK ingredients also includeds the fat that comes with the meat, and it's probably mainly grass fed as it's likely UK beef (ie england, Scotland, Whales or Ireland) as it's far cheaper here to grow grass for cows to eat or make in to silage for cows to eat than it is to grow corn. So it's probably a 25% fat mince (we no longer get all the yummy spines and brains anymore thanks to mad cow disease). The oil is probably in there as it get's bloody everywhere, same as the preservatives. I think overall the burgers are not a terrible choice if you really don't have the time to make your own.

        But honestly, sainsbusy's do fresh basics mince, massive pack for a couple of quid, way cheaper than buying ready made and far tastier too, the cheapest stuff is the highest fat, so makes a great burger, but even the SO organic range is probably cheaper weight for weight than ready made.
        You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................

          I put coconut oil and bacon grease in my burgers.
          I wish I liked to eat liver.
