From The Clothes Make the Girl
You guys. I literally JUST made this. As in, finished eating less than 5 minutes ago. I haven’t even done the dishes yet, which is so not my style. (OK, that’s not entirely true, I’ve done about half of them…crusty dishes are the bane of my existence…I have a weird existence). Anyhow, I ate it and I knew that I had to post it right this minute. I found it in the world of Paleo blogs thanks to our crazy Lenten diet thing (7 more days, 7 more days, bread, sweet, beautiful bread, oh how I
miss want need you). Anyhow, I know that most of the world doesn’t go around trolling Paleo cooking blogs on a regular basis, so chances are you’ll never stumble upon this amazing recipe. And even if you do, you probably won’t make it because it sounds borderline disgusting. I get that. Which is why I’m here to BEG you to make it. Seriously, it is mind-blowingly awesome, and you will wonder where nutty, buttery meat has been all your life. The idea of cheese and buns will slip away and you’ll be transported to a creamy world of umami. I can try to think of more adjectives to describe this phenomenal meal, but why don’t I save us both some time. Just go make it. Now.
- 1 cup strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
- 8 oz ground beef
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- garlic powder, to taste
- 2 Tbsp sunflower seed butter (I realized I named it PB&J, so that you would get the gist of the flavor profile, and if you want you can totally use creamy peanut butter, but we used sunflower seed butter, so my rave reviews are technically based on that)
- 1 green onion, green parts only, thinly sliced
- Place strawberries, lemon juice and ginger in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium, stirring often and mashing up with a wooden spoon, until the berries become very soft and syrupy. Set aside.
- Mix salt, pepper and garlic powder into the meat. Don’t over work it, just enough to combine. Shape into 2 patties.
- Cook burgers however you like. We did ours in a grill pan thanks to our balmy 35 degree Chicago March weather, but obviously outdoor grilling them would be awesome.
- Spread each burger with 1 tablespoon of sunflower seed butter and top with a dollop of the strawberry jam. Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
