Cabbage Stuffed Burgers

We just got a new vacuum, and I never thought I’d say this but…I’m excited to vacuum now!  I love it!  Our old one was cheap and sucked, but not literally because it actually barely picked up any debris and when I tried to use the hose it would spray dust it had picked up back onto the floor.  But my husband read reviews on Amazon and decided this one was a must-try.  And I must say, he did well!  So, if you are in the market for a new vacuum, you know my recommendation 😉

As exciting as vacuums are, I know that’s not what you are here for.  You’re here for these Paleo friendly Cabbage Stuffed Burgers.  I make burgers ALL the time for my family.  I prefer making them from scratch because I can sneak in veggies and spices, adding extra flavor and nutrients.  And these burgers do just that!

Today’s “hidden” ingredient is cabbage, which I’m sure you already guessed 😉  Chop it up, add some Italian seasoning, ground mustard and salt and there you have it: 5 ingredient organic beef burgers that are tender, full of flavor and veggie infused.

I cooked these burgers on the stove top, but grilling would be an excellent option as well.  Which reminds me: I cannot wait to whip out our grill and start cooking veggie skewers, meat and potatoes over the coals.  (I’m a fan of charcoal grills…anyone else?)

  • 1-1.5 lbs organic ground beef
  • 1/4 head small cabbage (about 120 g)

Instructions

  1. Slice cabbage into thin strips and add to large mixing bowl with spices.  Mix.
  2. Add in ground beef and mix with hands.
  3. Roll seasoned beef into balls and then flatten to form a patties (6-8).
  4. Cook burgers on stove top or grill until cooked through.

You know how I like to eat my burgers…on a salad!  I swear, I don’t eat a salad for every meal, but is there anything savory that doesn’t go well on a salad?

This particular meal was eaten with sliced green cabbage, spring mix lettuce, baked purple sweet potato and a few seeds.  I typically drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over my salads, or just plain mustard.

Enjoy!
