Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes. TIP: Cut the potato to size so it cooks in time.
While the fries are baking, thinly slice the red onion. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar, the water and brown sugar and mix well. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
While the onion is cooking, thinly slice the tomato into rounds. Lightly crush the black peppercorns (see ingredients) in a pestle and mortar or in their sachet using a rolling pin. In a small bowl, combine the crushed peppercorns and garlic aioli. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the beef mince, Aussie spice blend, egg and fine breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Shape the beef mixture into evenly sized patties slightly larger than your burger buns. You should get 1 patty per person. TIP: Make a shallow indent in the centre of each patty to help prevent it puffing up as it cooks.
Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium- high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the beef patties until just cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side. In the last 2 minutes of cook time, sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese over the patties and cover with a lid so the cheese melts. While the cheese is melting, place the butter burger buns directly on a wire rack in the oven and bake until heated through, 3 minutes.
Slice the burger buns in half, then spread the bases with some peppercorn aioli. Top with a beef patty, some caramelised onion, tomato and the rocket leaves. Serve with the oven-baked fries and any remaining peppercorn aioli.
