Beef and Rosemary Burgers

I really don't like the term 'cave man diet' but nothing makes me feel more primal than a big slab of meat. I am really enjoying building my meals round protein and good animal fats using the best meat I can afford. I didn't attempt to make burgers for months when I first started as I was struggling to accept them without the burger bun. What was the point? I might as well just eat the ground beef skillet style with veggies!

Once I had figured out a way to do paleo flatbreads with what I could eat however, I was so excited to use them as burger buns!

You really can't get homemade burgers wrong. They are fantastic vehicles for all sorts of flavours. Mexican style, Italian style, anything you fancy! I am going through a bit of a love affair with rosemary so I decided to keep these simply flavoured and dressed it with a homemade guacamole! Delish!

Beef and Rosemary Burgers

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 30 mins


250g minced beef
1 clove garlic, crushed and chopped finely
1 spring onion
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp mixed herbs
Salt and pepper to taste

Paleo flatbreads
Homemade guacamole to garnish


Combine all the ingredients for the burgers in a large bowl using your hands to massage the herbs into the meat. Once thoroughly mixed, separate into two portions and shape into burger patties in your hands. Heat a knob of coconut oil or ghee in a frying pan and add the burgers once hot. Fry on both sides for however long you like them done (I think I tend to stick to 10mins each side but this depends on the thickness.)

Spread the two flatbreads with homemade guacamole or tomato purée and dress with salad. Once the burgers are cooked to your liking build your paleo burgers!

Serve with a huge salad or on the side of any dish you fancy! I fancied big, fat celeriac chips!
This is a portion for one and makes me two small burgers, so double the recipe accordingly!
