Homemade Burgers made from 100% Organic Beef

Hi Everybody, how was your week? Did you had romantic dinner/lunch (in my case) on Valentine's Day? 
Mine was great..since my hubs was working we had wonderful "romantic"lunch and I made burgers.
Before I start to talk about this meal let me thank you all again for wonderful wishes to get better after the surgery..it means a lot to me how everybody was so thoughtful. Well, I took a week off from cooking..I can't say that I didn't enjoy being lazy all day, laying in bed, watching TV and not stress about anything..when you have a soul-mate next to you, you really don't have to worry about one single thing. He took kids to school, cleaned, cooked, washed, worked..I mean he is one of the kind, but still didn't lose his "macho" tough look:))..psss don't tell anybody but he is really cuddly bear in his heart:)

 - You all know that I've changed my diet. I ate balanced meals, in moderation everything of course and that is fine if you are healthy but I had to change 'cause I take my health rather seriously since the food that I was eating was making me sick. I still eat everything that my heart desire but found out that there is much more healthier way of keeping myself healthy and not necessarily lose the taste. Now I use stevia instead of the regular sugar, instead of the regular butter I am using vegan butter, and organic fruits, veggies and meat. Now that I mentioned meat I love beautiful chunk of beef and I just took one more turn in a right direction and got a Organic beef from "Rocky Mountain's Grass-fed 100% Organic Meat" ( USDA Organic). Why should you consider getting and switching on this meat? Answer is very simple because this is the best meat that you'll ever taste. 



After spending few hours of reading about the meat (I know to some of you may seem weird to read about this) trust me you don't won't to know what you are eating from the store..I hate for example when I get ground beef and there are three different colors...yes most of the stores are combining old ground beef with new one so they can sell old one easier, that is the only explanation that I could think of ...really nasty when you thing about what you are feeding your family with..right?

Now let's get down to business and let me give you the best burger recipe that you will ever taste..now even better because I used Organic Ground Beef. 

Delicious and Easy recipe for Homemade Burgers made from 100% Organic Beef

  • 1 1/2 Lb Organic Ground Beef

  4. Pour the olive oil on top, cover and place it in the fridge for few hours or over night.

  9. Take it off and arrange the whole Burger.

Easy recipe for Homemade Burgers made from 100% Organic Beef
I used:
  • 1000's Island Light Dressing/1/2 tsp. for each*optional
  • Organic Green Lettuce/ 1 Leaf
  • Cheddar cheese/1 slice for ea./or 2 Tbs. Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • Sliced Kosher Dill Pickles/4-5 for ea.
  • Tomatoes/2 slices
  • Red onion/1-2 slices
  • Buns with sesame seeds
Note*
Just a little note on the end..I ate only quarter of this giant burger because I have to take it slowly introducing food again into my system...and one more thing that surprised me that for the first time in a really, really long time the ground beef didn't gave me heartburn. 


Hope you enjoyed this post and my burgers... I will have more recipes really soon with Organic Beef! 
Wishing you all fantastic day!!!!


Hugs,


                              Sandra





P.S. Since I had so many questions regarding baking soda let me answer the question to everybody.
Many people have hard time (including myself) digesting meat..sooo let me tell you that soda help you digest it and  if you combine it with bread crumbs making your beef patties just a bit more plummer! If you are concern about the taste I am here to tell you that you can't taste it at all!!!

  1. Your photos are food-magazine worthy! That's one of the best-looking burgers I've seen in a long time--and I agree, it's always scary to open a package of ground beef and see how many color variations are in there!

  2. This burger looks so perfect. Sandra, I hope you're getting better. Wish you all the best

  3. Hi Sandra, glad you are recovering. Those images look great - love all the layers in it. I've just had a burger for my tea and I'm now craving your one.

  4. Hi Sandra, It is good to see you are back bringing amazing recipes to your readers. I eat animal protein once a week and this is one delicious juicy burger. I haven't have a good burger like yours in months. Your photos are making me really hungry and I have to have a burger really soon:)Thanks for sharing.

  5. I agree. I've changed my meat to mostly organic and it tastes much better and see the difference in quality. I'm really happy about the change (and it's not that much difference in price unless you eat a lot and often). Your burgers look delicious. Unless summer we don't really make burgers at home because there are a lot of gourmet burger joints popping up around here (I think it's very popular thing), but now I reconsider eating at home (and much cheaper!).

  8. @Nami, I have hard time digesting burgers when I go out even though I do order sometimes. Personally I like home-cooked meal and yes totally agree if you eat once a week organic meat prices are not even an issue because what is few more bucks for healthy looking meat!

    @Torview... Thanks sweetie!

    @Christine, Thank you so much...I am really glad that you like the burgers..the point is that you crave them right now:))) Thanks again!!!

  23. Sweet of the hubs to take care of you after surgery! I think the hardest part about day surgery is trying to find that balance between doing nothing and doing too much after you get home.
    Your picture does look amazing and I do agree that a great burger starts with a great quality of meat. Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete

  43. It's been so long since I've stopped by that I knew nothing of your surgery. Shame on me! I'm so glad to read that you have recovered nicely and that you were well taken care of during recovery. Hope it was nothing too serious. Love that ground beef! You're right - you don't have different colors to choose from and it actually has flavor! Your hamburger is making me won't to make one right now. I've never used 1000 Island dressing on a burger, but it sure sounds good! Best Wishes for continued good health!

  50. Hi Sandra-Isn't it nice to change over to a healthier life style of eating?...as for me, it's the Weight Watchers way, which worked the last time, and is working again, this time for keeps!

    Congratulations on the Top 9 with your beautiful organic burger. Love the way you stacked it, absolutely the way it should be...except, I like my burger medium, rare, please>>smiles!

  60. So glad you are on the mend and that your hubby is taking such good care of you. I buy the organic grass fed at costco, good price too. I don't know who would leave you an ugly comment, not nice. Hope you had a great weekend.

  61. Preparing homemade hamburgers is definitely a good alternative to the regular ones that can easily be purchased in fast food chains or burger joints. In addition to that, choosing purely organic beef just makes the burger better. Being a catering Fort Lauderdale service provider we believe that opting for organic produce and meats is not a fad but a commitment to provide healthier food options.

  62. Sandra, these sound wonderful. They would be perfect for the 4th of July. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
