beef burger, with coconut cardamom, juniper berry, and light ... on Twitpic
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom, ground from whole seed (not including pod)
  • 5 juniper berries, ground
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 pound 15% fat ground beef
  1. Mix the coconut oil into the meat.
  2. Grind cardamom seeds and juniper berries and mix into ground beef mixture.
  3. Add soy sauce to ground beef mixture.
  4. Allow to come to near room temperature before cooking.
  5. Form patties (I made four).
  6. Add about a tablespoon of coconut oil to a heavy fry pan and pan fry each burger about three minutes on each side (and remember, no squishing: put them in, let them fry, turn over, fry, remove).
  7. Let the burgers rest a bit before consuming to let the juices redistribute.
Makes four 1/4 burgers.
