One of the most classic Danish fall/winter dishes, and the story of the hamburger.
  • 1 1?2 Ib Ground beef from the butcher's
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 Large onions
  • ½ Cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons of organic butter
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 1?2 Cups of really good beef stock
  • Salt & Pepper
  • A dash of food coloring
  1. Take the meat out of the fridge about 15 minutes before you want to start cooking. Shape it onto four round hamburgers and season with salt and pepper. Fry them in butter in a large pan for about 5 minutes on each side.
  2. Peel and slice the onions. Put in a medium heat pan with a little bit of butter and fry for a minute. Add water and simmer until the water has evaporated.
  3. Melt butter slowly in a casserole. Add the flour and use a whisk to mix it for a minute or two.
  4. Slowly add the stock in portions, and keep whisking while you pour it in. Season with salt and pepper, and add just a dash of coloring to get the right dark brown color.
  5. Serve the hakkebøf with soft golden onions on top, together with boiled or roast potatoes, brown sauce and pickled cucumber or beets.
