Burger in a Bowl

Preparing the “burger”

1.25 to 1.5 pounds grassfed beef.  I use 85% lean, but you can use other variations including ground turkey (I recommend the dark meat) or ground steak.

1 tsp Sweet Hungarian Paprika

3 cloves of minced garlic

1 tsp sea salt

fresh ground pepper

1 TBSP chopped parsley

Brown meat in a fry pan with the garlic.   When the meat is cooked half way, add the salt, pepper and parsley.  Cook thoroughly.  I like to retain the fat because it gives flavor and moisture.


The potatoes:


  1.  Redmond Potatoes recipe
  2. Shredded Hashbrowns (I add bell pepper and onions)
  3. French Fries or waffle fries.
  4. Or White jasmine Rice

The Toppings:

Chopped lettuce

Chopped Roma tomatoes

Cheese (optional)


Chopped dill pickles (this really makes it)

Special Sauce or ketchup


Put It Together


Potatoes, (cheese optional next so it melts) then burger meat, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and top with sauce
