‘If you can flame grill your meat, you’ll get the authentic taste,’ she wrote on Instagram and shared a video with her 60,000 followers. 

In the clip, Bec prepared the meal by cooking the lean beef patty then placed it on the bottom brioche bun and topped with cheese.

Next, she added the tomato sauce, sliced pickles, onions and tomato, then drizzled the mayonnaise on top.

The short video outlining the quick and easy recipe has since gone viral and been viewed more than 48,000 times.
