When you have your mind set on a beef steak and go to the groceries to buy it and they are out,it is time for some creative thinking. This was the case yesterday. Due to the fact that I only found beef brisket, steak was out of the question.
Brisket is a very tasty meat, unfortunately also time-consuming matter, if you want to do this right, it is more like Sunday lunch.
So let’s cut to the chase, I bought the brisket and decided beef burger without the bun. I minced the meat in the food Pro, you can easily take already minced beef…
500 gr minced beef
1 big leek chopped small
2 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 large egg
1 tbsp. tarragon
Mix everything well and form it in big patties grill them or dry fry in a preheated pan. Turn them a couple of times, because of the honey they burn quickly.
So this was it.
For a side dish:
2 cans giant beans/about 400 gr./
150 gr. rocket washed and chopped
1 big avocado
2 spring onions chopped
a handful mini tomatoes roughly chopped
Do the `side` like any other salad, put all the ingredients in a bowl, olive oil & balsamic vinegar and some salt.
Easy quick and first of all healthy.
Necessity is the mother of invention, so I experimented and it turned out quite fine. Next time when you are in a burger mood, instead of making the old boring version try this out….
Until then Cheers
