A few days ago my wife and I decided to buy a new kind of oil that we found out is used when making one of our favorite burgers at a restaurant around town. We picked it up and I got cooking. The result was pretty amazing and we have had a few requests for the recipe. Since my cook book deal is on hold at the moment, I thought I would put it on here as a freebie. Enjoy!
My wife and I since being grain free have been indulging in burgers on salads and as you can see in the photo, green beans! I made these with every intention of putting them on spring mix but found out we were out right before I plated them. Oops! I’m glad steaming green beans only take a few minutes.
These burgers are easy to make in a few different steps. They may seem like a good amount but as always, tweak the recipe to fit whatever your taste palate may be.
For the toppings
-organic mushrooms, I used about 80z of bella(they cook down a lot)
-half an onion, diced
– 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, diced
-1 red bell pepper, diced
-Homemade hollandaise (3 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons butter, splash of vinegar, splash of lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste)
For the burgres
-1 pound of grass fed beef (can make between 2 and 4 patties)
-2 strips of bacon
– Salt and pepper to taste
For the green beans
To make the toppings for the burgers cook 2 strips of bacon and then place on to paper towels to drain. Using the bacon grease in the pan, add the diced onion and let cook for about 3 minutes before adding the sliced mushrooms and garlic. After about 3 minutes add in the diced red bell pepper and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Place mixture in a bowl covered with foil and set to the side.
To make the green beans simply put in a covered pot with about 1 inch of water on the bottom, season with salt and pepper if you wish and cook on low heat while covered for about 5-10 minutes.
To make the hollandaise, use a double boiler on low heat and crack 3 egg yolks in the top section with a splash of vinegar. Stir with a balloon whisk constantly until it beings to thicken, take off heat and add butter while still stirring as it thickens. Finally add splash of lemon juice, salt and pepper then set aside.
To make the burgers, simply divide into equal portions and cook either in a pan with butter or greased skillet. Cook to desired doneness.
Now, put it all together. Green beans on the bottom followed by the burger, then bacon, then mushroom mixture, finished with hollandaise sauce on top!
I hope you enjoy this recipe, it may be our favorite cold weather burger. That is until we come up with another winner. Enjoy!
