Hand-chopped rump burger with sour-cream slaw and waffle fries

Serve this incredible burger with sour-cream slaw, waffle fries, and a glass of Nederburg's The Motorcycle Marvel, a Rhone–style red with spicy, peppery berry and sweet fruit notes.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 8 minutes


600g mature thick-cut beef rump steak
25g Indian curry paste
Oil, for frying
100g baby gem lettuce, shredded
½ cup sour cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
Waffle chips or fried crisps, to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Chop the rump into small pieces. Place into a bowl and toss with the curry paste until evenly coated.
3. Shape the rump meat into 4 equal burger patties. Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium to high heat, and pan fry on each side for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Finish off in a preheated oven for 5 minutes.
4. In a separate bowl, combine the shredded lettuce and sour cream. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
5. Dollop a generous amount of sour cream slaw on each burger bun, top with a rump burger patty and a little more slaw. Serve with a side of crispy fried potato chips and Maldon salt.

Wine pairing:
Serve with a glass of Nederburg’s The Motorcycle Marvel. This Rhône-style red blend of Grenache, Carignan and Shiraz honours legendary winemaker Günter Brȍzel, who was cellar-master at Nederburg from 1956 to 1989.
