For the burger:
1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, diced finely/processed
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp chili pepper
¼ tsp cumin
½ cup bread crumbs (optional)
1 tsp salt to taste
Take all the burger ingredients in a bowl and mix them all using your hands. Knead as you do dough for a few minutes and give it a ball shape. Then, cover and keep in the fridge at least 2-3 hours. Grab egg size or bigger pieces of ground beef mixture and give it a flat round burger shape using your palms. Do the same with the remaining mixture.
Heat up the canola oil in a skillet and fry both sides of Turkish burgers.
Immediately fill the Turkish burgers inside the breads and the other ingredients as well. Serve warm.
