Entertaining authority Victoria Amory offers us this BBQ hamburger recipe, sharing that it is the secret to making the best burgers with lean meat.
A burger fresh off the grill is a quintessential summertime treat. But the saturated fat in a marbled, juicy burger is a known enemy of your sexual health. Thank goodness for this simple BBQ burger recipe, offering lean burgers with big flavor.
Why should you make a healthy burger?
Not every meal you make has to be healthy, even if you’re following our 10 Steps to Sexy Diet. But if you care about your sexual health or that of your lover, you want to concentrate on eating heart healthy foods as much as possible. Why? Because anything that’s good for your heart promotes good blood flow. And you can’t achieve sexual satisfaction without good blood flow. So, enter the importance of the healthy hamburger.
How do you make lean beef burgers with great flavor?
Victoria’s trick – and we have to say it’s genius – is to add a generous dash of barbecue sauce to the lean ground meat. There you have it! The simple trick that gives the BBQ burger its name is what’s going to give your lean ground meat flavor and help prevent your grilled burgers from drying out. (Although it calls for ground beef, his healthy burger recipe works with ground turkey as well. We don’t love it with ground chicken but if this is your preferred ground meat, then it is worth a try.)
We love this trick for bringing bright acid and a bbq smokiness to a grilled burger recipe without the need for drenching it in condiments. It’s an easy burger recipe to serve your lover to keep him or her in good health. But it’s also a recipe with wide appeal, one you could feed the whole family or to friends for a weekend afternoon of grilling hamburgers.
A tool for making the best BBQ hamburger
It’s always important to form your burger patties with even shape and thickness. This is especially important when you’re making lean burgers. You need to make sure you don’t wind up with dried out edges or uneven doneness. If you love cooking burgers, consider investing in a burger press. This little gadget will simplify the cooking, not to mention make great looking burgers.
