These burgers are not Paleo in the true sense of the word because I added cheese to them, but they were delicious!
Primal Cheese Burgers
2lb grass-fed ground beef
1 tbsp dried onion powder
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
6-12 slices of cheese of choice (I used feta)
This is a really simple recipe – mix the beef, onion powder, salt and pepper together, divide into 6 and shape into the patties. Cook on the first side fro 5-10 minutes until browned or golden – you could do this in a heavy pan, under the broiler or on the grill. I used the grill.
Turn and cook for 5-10 minutes until the second side is browned and the burger is cooked through . Top each burger with the cheese – I used 2 small slices of feta rather than one large slice of another cheese – a nice sharp cheddar would be good on these burgers. Please don’t top them with processed cheese though!
Return the burgers to the grill, broiler or pan and cook for a few more minutes to allow the cheese to melt slightly.
Because I used feta it didn’t really melt, it just softened a little.
Serve with the vegetables of choice – I used broccoli and green onions that I also cooked on the grill.
And there you have it – Primal Cheese Burgers with chargrilled broccoli and green onions….
