HOW TO MAKE IT:
1. Heat the oil in a small frying pan and cook the onion for 3-4 minutes over a low heat until softened. Stir in the cumin and paprika and cook for 1 minute. Allow to cool.
2. Meanwhile place the beef in a large bowl with the herbs and Worcestershire sauce, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in the cooled onion and spice mixture and mix well until all the ingredients are combined. Divide the mixture into 4 and shape into burgers. Chill for 30 minutes.
