Coconut-Feta Burgers

beef burger w/ coconut milk, sauteed yellow onion, feta chees... on Twitpic

  • 1 can coconut milk, reduced by half
  • 1 yellow onion, fine dice, cooked in coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom, ground
  • 8 ounces Feta cheese
  • 2 pounds 15% ground beef
  1. Saute onion until beginning to brown.
  2. Add coconut milk and reduce until water is gone.
  3. Allow coconut milk and onion mixture cool.
  4. Add cardamom.
  5. Combine mixture into ground beef.
  6. Crumble and add feta to ground beef, mixing well.
  7. Pan fry in oil, about 3-4 minutes on each side, or according to preference.
  8. NOTE: Do not, I repeat, do not smash the burger in the pan. That squishes out the yummy juices! Just put it in and let it fry until it's time to turn it over. Turn it. Then leave it until it's time to take it out. (sorry for the little rant...)

  1. This sounds really good. I think I'm going to have to try it.

  2. Lilia, I've just enjoyed my second one. I'd recommend it. One change, I think, is I'd add a bit more cardamom to the mix (I like cardamom). Otherwise, yum for sure.

  3. I think I'd also add a bit of reconstituted dry coconut meat (or fresh, if you have some). That would put it over the top.
