Have you ever wondered how you could have a burger that both tastes great and protects the meat while you grill it? Well, you've found it! This recipe uses Vitamin E to help reduce the carcinogens that are formed during grilling!
Prep Time: 12 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 32 minutes
Yield: 4 burgers
1 lb grass-fed beef
1 vitamin E capsule*
½ tsp pink himalayan salt
½ tsp black pepper
4 lettuce leaves
The Functional Nutrition Brand Falafel Tahini Dressing
4 gluten-free buns, optional
1. Preheat the grill until very hot, making sure the grill is closed.
2. Add the beef to a bowl and open the Vitamin E capsule into the meat. Then add the salt and pepper and mix well with your hands.
3. Form beef into 4 patties.
4. Turn down the heat of the grill to low. Place the meat on the grill, making sure not to squeeze the meat. (It’s easiest to use tongs for this!) Cover the grill with the lid and let the burgers cook for 10 minutes. Use tongs to turn the burgers over and cook for an additional 10 minutes, covered. Place the buns on the grill to toast, checking every so often to see when they are browned. Flip the buns when they turn golden brown, and remove them from the heat once both sides are browned.
5. Once the meat is done, assemble your burger. Place a piece of lettuce on the bun and then add the beef patty, followed by the tomato and onions. Top it all off with The Functional Nutrition Brand Falafel Tahini Dressing.
*Note: One 400 IU capsule is sufficient for 10 lbs of meat.
