Like most households, ground beef is a quick, easy, go to protein for dinner. The problem is that burgers can get pretty dull. Thanks to a few of my low carb cookbooks, I found a few recipes to kick my bun-less burgers up a notch.
This particular recipe comes from Rozanne Gold’s Low Carb 1-2-3 and has only 4 ingredients. It takes 3 hours for the ingredients to create a great flavor, but it is worth it.
Smokey Joe Burgers
Net Carbs: 1.5g
Weight Watchers PointsPlus: 6
- 2 lbs. ground sirloin
- 1 medium onion, grated (enough for 2-1/2 tbsp of onion pulp)
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 hours before serving, place the sirloin, onion pulp, smoked paprika, and salt. Using your hands, mix the thoroughly (but don’t over mix).
- Shape the sirloin into 6 large, thick patties. Individually wrap each patty in foil and refrigerate for 3 hours (no longer than 3) to bring out the flavor.
- After 3 hours, pre-heat the broiler. Remove the burgers from the foil and place them on a rimmed baking sheet and broil, about 6″ from the heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until they reach desired doneness. Serve immediately.
