1. Place the minced beef in a bowl with the onion and mix in the beaten egg, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Divide into 4 equal-sized portions and then shape into hamburgers, about 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick.
2. To make the pizzaiola sauce, heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and garlic and fry until golden. Add the pepper rings and continue cooking for 15 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, tomatoes with their juice and the marjoram. Season to taste with the chilli sauce, salt and pepper. Cover the pan and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, cook the hamburgers on the oiled grid of a preheated barbecue over hot coals for about 15 minutes, turning them once.
4. Arrange the cooked burgers on a hot serving dish and then pour the sauce over them. Serve with a crisp green salad and crusty bread or baked jacket potatoes.
