After a weekend up in northern Michigan at my parents, I didn’t get home until almost 10 last night. There was not enough time to defrost any meat to cook meals for today. I needed to make a quick trip to Kroger to buy fruit for breakfast anyway, so it gave me a chance to buy some meat.
As I arrived in the meat section, a guy was putting out a case of “Manager’s Special” ground sirloin at $1.99 for each one pound package, since they had a sell by date of the 18th. Perfect! I bought 3 pounds and picked up some other items with the plan to make burgers today during lunch.
Ever since we had a Paleo BBQ at Survival Fitness on Memorial Day and I had Tara’s burgers, I was looking forward to giving them a try. I took out my food processor and started throwing stuff in. It started with one jalapeño (should have used 2) that I cleaned the inside out of and cut up into a few big pieces. Then I did the same thing with a red pepper. Chopped up a medium Vidalia and finally about 1/2 to 3/4 of a package of button mushrooms, which I also bought as a Managers Special. I pulsed everything together really well.
I got a big bowl, threw in the 3 pounds of meat, added the mixture I just created, and put on some cayenne pepper and regular pepper. Time to get the hands dirty! Oh, I also threw in the last of the almond flour I had (maybe 1/4 of a cup) in an attempt to bind everything together a bit more because the mixture I made was pretty soupy.
Then I formed some big hamburger patties. Next time I won’t make them so big because I had a few issues with them on the grill. Grilled them up and they turned out great. Some of the outsides were a bit charred, but the insides were cooked perfectly.
I immediately plated 2 of these bad boys for lunch with sliced tomato and avocado inside lettuce wraps.
I’m going to freeze a couple of packages each containing 2 burgers, which leaves me enough leftovers for dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow.
You could use ground turkey, ground round, or probably anything you want and these should turn out amazing.
