This recipe comes from a friend. We both love to cook and often share recipes. I’ve already posted a couple of things that she’s shared with me in the past. This is another delicious recipe from her. We buy our beef in bulk so we tend to make a lot of hamburgers but I like to spice things up by adding different veggies and herbs to our burgers once in a while. Okay, it’s more like once in a while we have a “regular” burger without all the flair. Here is a post with one of our many burger varieties.
This Moroccan burger recipe comes from myrecipes.com. I did make a few changes. We don’t eat much grain so instead of breadcrumbs I used almond meal which doesn’t affect the taste of the burger at all. I also, have to omit the red pepper flakes for Dr. Court because if you’ve been reading these posts his digestive system can’t really handle it. These are so good and will definitely be worked into our burger rotation!
2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 large egg
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)
Combine all ingredients thoroughly; shape into 8 (4-inch) patties. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350º to 400º) 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink.
