Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef sirloin (antibiotic-free)
  • 1/4 cup organic low-fat, low sodium cottage cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. steak sauce
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 4 count whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • 4 large slices of red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 cup organic baby arugula

Recipe Directions:

1. Preheat grill over medium-high heat. In a large bowl, gently combine the beef, cottage cheese, steak sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper with your hands. Lightly form the mixture into 4 even patties, about 1/3 inch thick.
2. Cook burgers for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until cooked at least to medium doneness.
3. Remove the burgers to a plate, cover with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve on buns with onion and arugula. Serve condiments on the side, if desired.

Fresh Fact:
Though steaks can be cooked medium rare, it's important that ground beef be cooked a little longer, to at least medium doneness. How do you know when it's cooked properly? Use a meat thermometer. To help prevent food borne illness, these ground sirloin burgers should reach an internal temperature of at least 160ºF.

Fast Fix:
Cook burgers inside instead of outdoors. Place nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook burgers (in batches, if necessary) for 3 minutes per side, or until at least medium doneness. You'll probably need to use the kitchen fan for this preparation. Or preheat broiler. Cook burgers on broiler pan under the broiler for 2 minutes per side, or until at least medium doneness.
