I will admit to you that I am fascinated with buffalo; this meat is lean and so tasty that I am trying to use it as much as possible. If you have followed this blog for awhile, you might notice that I already have this type of burger on my blog. But wait!!!! Are you sure? Let me assure you that this recipe is not exactly the same as the one before; this recipe is actually better than the previous one.
I chose to mix buffalo with beef and roasted beets because their tastes and textures all went well together. This burger is so earthy, yummy and pretty; the beet give the patties some colour. It was a hit at my house.
Hope you give this burger a try someday soon 🙂
Buffalo, Beef & roasted Beet Burger
- 100 g. roasted beet (see note below)
- 16 oz. ground buffalo (90% lean 10% fat)
- 16 oz. lean ground beef (85% lean 15% fat)
- 2 tbs. hemp seed (optional, but preferable)
- 1 tbs. plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon Herbs de Provence
To roast beets: preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap beets in foil and roast until tender when pierced with fork, about 60-90 minutes. Cool. Peel beets. Cut beet into small cubes. Blend in the food processor. Set aside.
In the bowl, mix all ingredients until well combined (do not overmix). Cook a little bit of meat mixture; taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.
Form the mixture into 10-15 mini patties (about 2” diameter x 0.5” thick) or about 6 regular size patties. Set aside at room temperature.
Preheat over to 350 ํF. To brown the meat, place the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the mini patties and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned. Place on a baking tray and cook for further 5-7 minutes or cooked to your liking.
to make burgers, you will likely need:
- any small bun you prefer
- mild cheddar cheese
- tomatoes, sliced
- pea shoot or lettuce
- red onion, sliced
- cooked pancetta or crisped bacon (optional but preferable)
- mayonnaise & mustard
Smear the bun with mayonnaise & mustard, and stack up the burgers as you wish.
