My Husband's Perfect Burger


My Husband's Perfect Burger

By: Jeremy Rivera

We've never used a grill. Apartment living has really taught us the versatility of the stainless steel pan and some olive oil! My husband makes a mean burger and his technique is flawless. The secret is using a little bit of water in the pan while cooking up the ground beef mix and actually putting some of the bun into the meat mix, too! Simply substituting creatively makes this main meal not only delicious but hearty. Yum!

Yields: 4 Servings


Gluten free bun (choose your favorite) or Focaccia

Meat Mix:

1.35 lbs Grass-Fed, Organic, Ground Beef or Bison
1/2 Organic White Onion (chopped)
1/4 Cup Raw, Shredded, Cheddar Cheese
1 tsp Cayenne
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Tyme
1 bun pulled apart into little bits

Veggies: (all optional)

Organic Tomato Slice
Butter Lettuce Leaf
Organic Red Onion Slice
Avocado Slice

Cheese Layer: (all optional)

Crumbled Blue Cheese
Crumbled Goat Cheese
Raw Cheddar Slice


Organic Tomato Ketchup

1. Fill a large frying pan with about 1" of water and olive oil and put on stove at medium-high heat.

2. Mix together all 'meat mix' ingredients in a bowl with your hands. Pressing everything together until evenly distributed in a big ball.

3. Using all of the meat mix make 4 balls and press into round patties. Put patties (2 at a time) into pan and let simmer with loose lid on, flipping every 2 minutes.

5. Do this until all 4 patties are cooked to your liking (rare, medium rare, medium or well done).

6. Toast buns or not. Using a spreading knife, spread ketchup and veganaise on the inside of the buns.

7. Add veggies, burger, cheese to your liking and enjoy with some homemade sweet potato fries!

If you like to avoid carbohydrates at night (like me), and you're making this for dinner, substitute lettuce for the bun! Enjoy and please comment below on how yours turns out. Thank you to my amazing husband for sharing his secret to an epic, sexy burger!
