Hi Everybody, how was your week? Did you have 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:))…pssst don’t tell anybody but he is a 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 a much 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 a beautiful chunk of beef and I just took one more turn in a right direction and got an Organic beef from “Rocky Mountain’s Grass-fed 100% Organic Meat” ( USDA Organic). Why should you consider getting and switching on this meat? The 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 want 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 think 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.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- 1 1/2 Lb Organic Ground Beef
- 1 Onion mince or shred
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
- 3 Tbs. Plain Bread Crumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 2 Tbs Water
- 1 Tbs. Olive Oil
In a cup put bread crumbs and baking soda, add water and stir it; leave it for a minute.
In a meanwhile put the ground beef in the bowl and add shredded onion, salt, and pepper.
Combine and add bread crumbs and baking soda mixture, and combine it with a ground beef.
Pour the olive oil on top, cover and place it in the fridge for few hours or overnight.
Heat your grill and form the patties.
Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side..if you like well done than about 7 minutes.
When the patties are almost done cut the buns and place on top of the patties.
This way your bans will be with the smoky beef flavor too.
Take it off and arrange the whole Burger.
