Peel the onion and garlic. Dice the onion and finely chop the garlic cloves. In a bowl, mix the minced beef, soy sauce, onion, garlic and cheese. Season with cumin, paprika and pepper. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape into burger patties and fry them in hot oil for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Slice the gherkins lengthways. Wash, de-stem and slice the tomatoes. Wash the lettuce and spin dry.
Mix together the mayonnaise and ponzu sauce to make a spread. If you like you can toast the burger buns briefly under a grill on in a pan.
Spread mayonnaise onto the lower half of the bun. Top with gherkin, tomato, lettuce leaves and a patty. Spread ketchup onto the other half burger bun, place on top of the burger and serve.
