deconstructed grain & dairy free burger
This recipe is going to change your life. If you are new to the grain free & dairy free lifestyle this will be sure to satisfy. This recipe is obviously *NOT* vegan! Apologies and condolences to my animal worshipping lovers.
**Serves two comfortably.
**Note: Outdoor grill needed! I prefer the George Foreman Outdoor Grill because it is surprisingly kick ass and will actually dominate standard sized charcoal grills in performance. Ok, I'm done now.
/// Ingredients ///
1 lb grass fed beef
3 cloves minced garlic
1 lb fingerling potatoes (organic if you can; if not I won't judge you... ok maybe I will. I'm not sure)
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp coconut oil
as much black pepper as you want, maybe even some rosemary if you are feeling wild and sexy
1 orange, red, or green pepper chopped lengthwise
4 sprigs green onion
1 small case baby heirloom tomatoes
/// Instructions ///
Preheat your oven to 400 and your grill as well.
Throw your chopped peppers on the grill- no seasoning needed. Let these babies cook for at least 30 minutes. They will caramelize slowly and develop a natural smokey flavor with time. TRUST ME- don't be paranoid.. let them sit.
Grab a mixing bowl, toss in your baby fingerlings, chili powder, coconut oil, salt and ground pepper and mix thoroughly. Spread on a baking sheet and throw in oven for 30 minutes. Flip once or twice throughout baking process.
Chop green onions about 3 inches wide.
Grab another clean mixing bowl and throw your grass fed beef, minced garlic, and pinch of salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Form patties and set aside. When the fingerlings and peppers are about 25 minutes in- throw your green onions and patties on the grill. I like my burger medium so I leave it on for 3 minutes, then flip and cook the other side for 5 minutes.
After your burger is done- your fingerlings, green onions, baby heirlooms and peppers should be just about cooked as well. Arrange on a plate as serve. As you are enjoying this lovely feast make sure to grab a little green onion, pepper and beef in every mouth full to anticipate the essence and flavor of a classic burger.
