In Cullens we take pride in supplying the best in quality beef. We then age our beef  for tenderness and depth of flavour. See our aged beef window in store.  

We select, cut, prepare & trim all our beef to the highest of standards. We prepare in store and daily.  
You can always ask us to cut a steak,  prepare a roast cut to size, or mince a piece of rib steak if you want to make your own burgers.  

We're passionate about quality products, shopping local and our customers, We want you to have a top quality eating experience every time you shop with us. 

At Cullens we always have our award winning ¼ pounders, but if you fancy making your own burgers, keep it simple. Use good quality mince and don’t overcomplicate the flavour – maybe add a little bit of salt and pepper or for variety add a little bit of BBQ sauce or Sweet Chilli sauce to your mix.
Minced lamb also makes excellent burgers!


1.         When making your patty -Use good quality meat. The best mince to use for Burgers is Rib Steak Mince. It has more flavour than Round Steak Mince and has just the right amount of fat to keep the burger juicy.
2.         Keep it simple – it’s all about the meat!
3.         Chill the patty in the fridge for 15 mins before grilling; this will help hold its shape.
4.         Dent in the centre to prevent the patty from balling up.
5.         Have all supplies at hand - so plan ahead.
6.         Start with a clean grill..
7.         Don’t squish the burgers!!!! you’ll make them dry out. Only flip once.
8.         Add Cheese at the very end if using. 
9.       Is it Done? Go for medium well.
10.       Always let it rest for a few minutes.


1.         Cooked Sliced Mushroom, Cooked Sliced Onion
2.         Lettuce Leaf, Slice of Tomato, Sliced Onion Ring, 1 Tsp Mayonnaise
3.         Slice of Cheddar Cheese Melted
4.         Crispy Pancetta
5.         Grated or Sliced Cheddar, Tomato Salsa
6.         Pepper or Mushroom Sauce
7.         Pesto and Mozzarella Cheese
8.         Pineapple, Cheddar cheese, Lettuce & Tomato
9.         Caramelised Red Onions
10.       BBQ Sauce
11.       Homemade Guacamole
12.       Try a combination using some of the above
            for instance..mozzarella & pesto, with pancetta, and lettuce, tomato, onion & mayo!

yummy!  all delish!

  1. Hi,

    I enjoyed reading the article you wrote about grilling above.

    We just created an infographic about common mistakes people make when grilling called Come on Baby Light My Fire (I've attached it to this email - you can also see it online here []).

    Since your blog was one of the ones that I read while researching the infographic, I thought that your audience might like our infographic, too - and since I know writers are often looking for relevant content to use, I wanted to let you know that you are more than welcome to use our infographic on your blog : )

    If you do use it, let me know and we'll tweet out a link to your blog post to our twitter followers (@JESRestaurantEq).

    There is some HTML code on our original source post that makes it pretty easy to post, but please feel free to use and post the infographic however you like - we just ask that you put some kind of link back to the source page so if other people want to use it, they can too.

    Thank you very much!

    ~ Melanie
