Description

Who doesn't love a great burger? Pluck Burgers are super easy and can be customized to your protein preference. If using beef, make sure it's 100% grass-fed. 

Ingredients
  • 1 pound grass fed, grass finished ground beef (or ground protein of choice)
  • 1-2 tablespoons Pluck seasoning + more as finishing spice.
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley or fresh herb of choice (oregano or thyme are great choices)
  • 1 small head red or green butter lettuce
  • 2 onions, caramelized (optional)
  • 6 mushrooms, sliced and sauteed (optional)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
Instructions
  1. Step 1

    Place ground meat in a medium bowl. Add the Pluck and the fresh herbs. Using your hands or large spoon, mix until well incorporated.

  2. Step 2

    Separate meat into 3-4 oz portions (or simply to the serving size you want them to be). Pat them into a ball and then flatten slightly to the desired thickness.

  3. Step 3

    Place on a cast-iron pan over medium heat or hot grill (my preference) and allow to cook about 4 minutes on each side until you see browning or grill marks. *Cook to desired wellness.

    If using grass-fed beef, do not overcook it. You want it to be slightly red in the middle for optimal moisture and taste.
  4. Step 4

    Place on a single lettuce leaf (or burger bun), add your toppings and another pinch or two of Pluck. Enjoy!

    I like to pair anything cooked on a grill with cultured vegetables (also known as sauerkraut). It helps to offset the harmful effects of meat cooked at high temperature.
