It’s the middle of grilling season which means that I am experimenting and trying to create the best burger ever 🤣🤩
While I love my chicken burgers and a good old classic keto burger I am trying to eat more wild meats such as elk so I wanted to create a delicious elk burger 😇 it’s a great way to eat more nose to tail and regeneratively 😇
Elk meat when harvested in the right area is super flavorful and juicy (no weird gamey taste), I love my elk from Northstar Bison, and you can get yours 10$ off if you use my referral code 👌🏻
I love to serve these with guacamole and lots of grilled veggies , grilled radicchio and carrot fries 🍟
For each patty you need:
6 ounces ground elk 🦌
Chopped basil and parsley 🌿
Paprika powder and salt 🧂
Grated zucchini and bell pepper 🫑
A bit of coconut flour or egg as a binder (psyllium husk powder can also work)🌈
Combine the meat and the spices in a bowl, chop herbs and grate the veggies and mix everything thoroughly. Add in as much binder as necessary to make sure the batter doesn’t fall apart on the grill.
Next, form a patty and preheat the grill or airfryer to about 450! Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side. Elk meat is a bit leaner so it could dry out, so keep an eye on it.
Serve with a lettuce wrap, tomato, cucumber slices, and mayonaise/guacamole 🥑🙌🏻🤩
