Best Burgers, Paleoista Style
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American Paleo
Serves: 2-3
You can't beat a burger...but you can certainly make it better by grinding your own meat and combing just the right cuts for that perfect balance of taste and texture. Here's my favorite duo!
  • ½ pound grass fed short ribs, bones reserved for stock
  • ½ pound grass fed chuck
  • 4 cups mixed lettuces, including frisee
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil
  • 2 large Heirloom tomatoes
  • Rosemary, for garnish
  • Olive oil, to taste
  1. Fire up the grill
  2. Roughly chop meat from both cuts into one inch pieces
  3. Place in freezer for ten minutes
  4. Using the pusher tool, feed meat through grinder attachment of mixer
  5. Form two to three patties
  6. Cook two to three minutes on each side, checking internal temperature
  7. Once 150 is reached, remove from grill and tent under foil
  8. Throughly wash hands
  9. Combine lettuces with basil and tomato to create a salad
  10. Garnish with rosemary
  11. Drizzle on olive oil, to taste
  12. Check to see that burgers have reached 160 and serve, pouring drippings on top of salad
