The beef burgers in the oven are one of the most favorite dishes. The addition of sumac makes them even tastier, giving them a unique, more oriental flavor. Sumac comes from the dried fruits of the Rhus Coriaria plant. Its color is bright red, it has a rich taste and flavor similar to that of lemon. It is widely used in the Middle East. It pairs very well with soups, salad dressings and sauces. In the recipes it is usually used with some other spice (cumin, paprika, etc).



  • 1.200 kg minced beef
  • 300 gr stale bread, soaked in milk and then squeezed
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp dried oregano Sunspices
  • 2 tsp cumin Sunspices
  • 2 tsp sumac Sunspices
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1 kg potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 100 ml water
  • 1 tbsp Carino potatoes seasoning Sunspices


  1. In a small saucepan, we heat a little bit of olive oil and we sauté very well the onions until caramelized. We let them aside to cool. When cooled, in a large bowl we put the minced beef, the sautéed onions, the oil, the eggs, the bread, the oregano, the cumin, the sumac, salt and pepper. We knead very well for about 10-15 minutes. The more we knead the minced beef, the fluffier the burgers will be! We cover the bowl with cling film and we put it in the fridge for 1 hour, so that the flavors and taste intensify.
  2. We preheat the oven to 200C/390F. We form the minced beef mixture into 8 burgers. We mix the potatoes with the olive oil and the Carino seasoning. We arrange them in a baking dish and pour the water over them. We place the burgers on top of the potatoes. We cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and put it in the oven. We cook for 35-40’. Then, we remove the aluminum foil and cook for another 15-20’ until the burgers and potatoes are ready. We serve with green salad.
