Middle Eastern cuisine is known for its flavorful dishes featuring an array of spices. The aromatic notes of cardamom and the smoky flavor of cumin add a touch of the Middle East to this burger. The spices aid digestion, improve immunity, and help regulate inflammation—the driving force behind chronic disease. Grass-fed beef is abundant in essential fatty acids, B vitamins, and, of course, protein.
Middle Eastern Burger
Heat a grill to medium or a grill pan or skillet over medium heat.
In a large bowl, mix together the onion, garlic, tamari, cumin, cardamom,
smoked sea salt, and black pepper to taste. For a spicier (hotter) flavor,
add cayenne or jalapeño to your liking. Add the ground beef, mix well
with clean hands to combine, and form into four 4-ounce patties.
Grill or cook on the stovetop until browned on both sides and cooked to your liking. Be careful not to char the meat, as that makes it very toxic.
