Canada Day Burger | Beef Recipes Getting a burger just right is about building up a whole collection of flavours and textures into an almighty friendship. The natural blend of fat and lean meat is perfect in these chuck steak burgers, so not only are they super-juicy, but they deliver big on the flavour front, too. Divide the minced chuck steak into 4 and, with wet hands, roll each piece into a ball, then press into flat patties roughly 2cm wider than your buns. Place on an oiled plate and place in the fridge to firm up. To make the slaw, add the yoghurt and both mustards to a large bowl and squeeze in the lemon juice. Remove the tatty outer leaves from the cabbages and peel the onion and carrot. Season the burgers with a small pinch of salt and pepper and the cumin seeds, then place onto the barbecue or griddle pan. Meanwhile, cook the bacon until sizzling and golden brown all over, then remove to kitchen paper to drain. Cut the burger buns in half and lightly toast them, cut-side down.
What wine to drink with boeuf bourguignon Our wine expert Victoria Moore suggests four affordable bottles of wine to drink with boeuf bourguignon. Plus: Victoria's easy boeuf bourguignon recipe.

Veruca Salt – Ghost Notes | Album Reviews It’s unlikely that Veruca Salt’s original lineup of Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Steve Lack, and Jim Shapiro ever imagined influencing bands 20 years in the future. One listen to Colleen Green or Charly Bliss, though, is all it takes to recognize the Chicago band’s importance, even if just with 1994’s American Thighs. Ghost Notes, Veruca Salt’s fifth album, plays out like a thank-you note, but unlike most reunited bands, Veruca Salt don’t aim to recapture the past. Instead, the four-piece ditches easy nostalgia for a thorough embrace of their alternative rock roots. When they returned for Record Store Day 2014 with “The Museum of Broken Relationships”, things seemed like they could go in either direction. The band knows better than to dwell on the past. Maybe it’s because they frequently opt for slower songs. Holding on to feelings of youth while accepting your age is hard no matter the context. Essential Tracks: “Empty Bottle”, “Laughing in the Sugar Bowl”, and “The Sound of Leaving”
Dan Doherty's homemade potato tots, fried egg, spiced avocado and hot sauce recipe Step 1 Bring the potatoes (unpeeled) to the boil in salted water. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until half cooked, so a knife goes in but feels resistance in the centre. Drain, dry and cool. When cool enough to handle, peel and grate into a bowl, season, and mix well. Step 2 To make the hot sauce, fry the onion and garlic in 1 tbsp oil on a medium heat, until soft. Step 3 To make the avocado, mix all the ingredients together, adding more chilli if you want it spicier. Step 4 Heat a deep fat fryer or a pan of oil no more that 1/3 full to 180C, or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds. Step 5 Put the eggs, the potato tots, a good spoonful of avocado on a plate and add a few splashes of hot sauce.

Step 2 Put the lardons in a cold pan and gently heat until the fat starts to melt out, then turn the heat up a little and fry until they start to brown. Step 3 Meanwhile, put the clams in a shallow pan with 250ml water and bring to a simmer, put a lid on and cook for 3-4 minutes or until all the clams have opened. Step 4 Scoop the lardons out of the pan onto some kitchen paper and tip away most of the fat. Step 5 Take most of the clams out of their shells and add them to the chowder with the cream, then bring back to a simmer.
