Meaty burgers with a little something extra thanks to the additions of turmeric and coconut aminos.
1 lb of ground beef (450 g)
½ medium red onion (2 oz or 55 g), very finely chopped or grated
1 Tablespoon of gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos (15 ml)
1 Tablespoon of turmeric (6 g)
1 teaspoon of mustard (5 ml)
½ teaspoon of garlic powder (2 g)
1 medium egg, whisked
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional serving ideas:
Keto bun (bun recipe)
Turmeric dressing/sauce (recipe)
Sliced red onion
- In a large bowl, mix the ingredients until fully combined. Form the mixture into 4 large patties or 6 smaller patties. (If desired, wrap the patties in foil or plastic wrap and freeze to cook at a later date.)
- Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste. Knead the mixture for a minute or two with your hands to tenderise the meat.
- Heat a grill or skillet to medium-high. Place the patties on the hot grill or skillet and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Using a large spatula, flip each burger and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes until cooked to your liking, about a total time of 6 minutes for medium-rare and 10 minutes for well done. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Serve the burgers with a bun or bunless with turmeric dressing, lettuce, tomato, and onion, if desired.
