My parents raised their own beef this year and ((lucky me)) they were willing to share with me. It had been quite a while since I could eat beef. I had been vegan for so long that even when I started to eat meat again beef always made me ill. I am not sure if I am just over it or if it is the difference in grass fed beef. I am very happy that I can keep it down with no problems now.
I just wanted to show how very lean this meat is. I even had to add some olive oil to the pan to get it to cook. See how these patties didn't really shrink at all? I guess that is how you can tell it is from a happy cow.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 onion chopped
1/4 t. sea salt
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. ground cloves
1/4 t. allspice
1T. finely chopped rosemary
This is super easy and quick. Mix everything in a bowl. Then with your hands form little patties about half the size you would want a hamburger.
Warm the oil (if you need it) in a pan one medium heat. Cook the patties for about 3 minutes on one side and about 5 on the other. They should be nicely browned and slightly pink on the inside.
When I have a long work day I am always so happy that I have these made up. It is so easy to grab them out of the fridge and go.
