A super simple twist on a classic beef burger!
A super simple twist on a classic beef burger! In the photo, we've served this with Mediterranean Salad.
Makes 6 burgers - each one contains:
262 Calories / 1.2g Carbs / 15g Fibre / 30g Protein / 0.4g Fibre
Macros include our choice of filling, listed below, and the oil used to fry. Macros will vary if you choose to use a different mince or filling. The carbs listed above are already net carbs, as with all UK labels. Do not subtract the fibre.
750g Beef Mince (5% is best as the leaner mince won't shrink as much) - swap this for another lean mince of your choice if you prefer e.g. turkey (7%) or pork (5%)
Salt & Pepper
Any other seasonings & spices of choice e.g. garlic powder, chilli flakes, herbs
This can be whatever you want! We used 15g cream cheese per burger, mixed with seasonings - the one in the photo is cream cheese, smoked paprika & black pepper.
30g Cooking Coconut Oil (this has no flavour or taste) - swap for another fat suitable for high temperatures, e.g. Lard
To pan fry
Either blitz all of the burger ingredients in a large food processor, or use a small food processor to blitz the shallots down into fine pieces and add to a bowl with the remaining ingredients, mixing thoroughly.
Divide the burger mixture into 6 equal portions. Then, divide each portion into two.
Flatten one piece (we do this in a burger press). Add your filling of choice into the centre. Flatten the other piece, and place this on top of the first piece of burger mix, pressing to seal the filling in the middle of the burger.
Repeat for the other 5 burgers.
Heat a pan over a medium / high heat and add the coconut oil. We pan fried three burgers at a time, so we added 15g oil to the pan first and the other 15g were used for the next three burgers.
Pan fry the burgers for several minutes on each side, until the beef is fully cooked. A food thermometer is useful here.
