I’ve never added capers to my burgers but they turned out so delicious! I was craving some salmon with a caper dill sauce and was all ready to go until I realized I didn’t have any salmon. Hahaha, I know, that should’ve been the first thing I checked…I know. Well I had some really good grass fed ground meat that I just had delivered so I thought why not add some capers to some meat and make some burgers?! Sooooo that’s what I did and they were bomb and so I thought I should post these.
You must flavor beef. Let me repeat that….YOU MUST FLAVOR BEEF. Do you hate when a burger looks so delicious to then take a bite and the meat is bland. It’s the worst! It’s like…
The hard part about salting and flavoring meat is you can’t taste test. But have you ever had a burger that’s too salty? I’ve never had one. So add some salt, onion powder, garlic powder, italian seasoning, or whatever herbs you have. Just don’t let your next hamburger go naked!
So here’s my recipe. Hope you enjoy it. If you don’t, you can change it up to your liking!
- 1/2 lb Grass-Fed Ground Beef It doesn't have to be grass-fed beef, but be picky about the meat you buy. 🙂
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Pasture-Raised chicken Egg It doesn't have to be pasture raised, but be picky about where the chickens were raised.
- 1/4 cup Capers
- 1 tbsp Sea Salt
- 1 teaspoon Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- Mix all these ingredients in a big bowl with your hands. Wet your hands when it gets too sticky.
- You should be able to put 4 patties together out of this amount of beef. Place the patties on a plate and put a thumbprint in each one. It helps to keep the patties to not rise as much.
- Oil a grill and heat on medium-high heat. Add the patties when the grill just begins to smoke. Cook for 4 minutes, then turn patties and cook for another 4 minutes. These should result in Medium cooked burgers. But test the inside of one to make sure it is done enough for you.
- I put the patties on top of butter leaf salad but you can use a full butter leaf lettuce as a wrap if you like. Or use a hamburger bun if you aren't watching your carb count or gluten free. Just make sure to toast and flavor those buns with butter or mayo. No one, let me repeat no one likes a cold plain naked bun straight out of a package!...no one. 🙂
- Enjoy! You can eat2nourish with beef because it nourishes you with Vitamin B12, Protein and Iron to name just a few nutrients!
