Mix together burger sauce ingredients until fully combined. Prepare your lettuce, red onion and tomato slices.
You want to prepare your buns before cooking the patties, so you can serve patties immediately, whilst still hot. To do so, slice your brioche buns in half, then heat a small amount of coconut oil in cast iron pan or griddle and toast your buns for 2-3 mins. Spread burger sauce on top and bottom buns, then add lettuce, gherkins and red onion slices to bottom bun.
To make your patties, split beef mince into 4 and roll into balls with your hands. Season very generously with salt and pepper and roll beef balls around in seasoning to ensure they are completely coated.
Cook patties in two batches and make sure cast iron pan or griddle is very hot. Add tsp of coconut oil to pan and place two beef balls in pan with enough room to smash. Using a spatula/ burger turner with parchment paper underneath, press down on each beef ball until it is completely flat. Cook for 60 seconds on one side, then flip the patty. Add Monterey Jack slice to one patty, then place the other patty on top. Once cheese has melted, remove from heat and add to your prepared burger bun. Repeat this process for remaining beef patties.
Place tomato slices on top of patties and close burger with top bun. Serve immediately and enjoy!
