Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Add all ingredients for the hamburgers to a large bowl. Blend it using a wooden spoon or your clean hands. Don't over mix since that can make your patties tough. Use wet hands to form eight oblong patties.
  2. Add butter and olive oil to a large frying pan. Fry over medium-high heat for at least 10 minutes or until the patties have turned a nice color. Flip them a few times for even cooking.
  3. Add tomato paste and whipping cream to the pan when the patties are almost done. Stir and let simmer for a few minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Sprinkle chopped parsley on top before serving.

Butter-fried green cabbage

  1. Shred the cabbage finely using a food processor or sharp knife.
  2. Add butter to a large frying pan.
  3. Place the pan over medium high heat and sauté the shredded cabbage for at least 15 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted and golden brown around the edges.
  4. Stir regularly and lower the heat a little towards the end. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Hi,

    When you refer to ground beef, I guess the UK equivalent would be minced beef, but we have three types, Beef Mince 20% fat, Lean Beef Mince 10-12% Fat or Extra Lean 5% Fat. What would be the correct mince to buy to match the recipe, this would help to keep with the plan and good to know for other ground meat recipes. Also the higher the fat content the cheaper the meat!

    Cheers

    I saw someone I follow on Instagram make this recipe so I decided to try it out for myself. So incredibly delicious. My non-keto husband and son loved it. My husband said, "I could eat this every week!" I'm adding it to my rotation!

    How much is 1/6 oz of butter? Is that a typo?

    Hi Kim!

    Yes it looks odd. It should be 1 oz of butter.

    How much is 1/6 oz of butter? Is that a typo?

    Oh wow - these were amazing! I threw crispy bacon and mushrooms sauteed with garlic, along with pork and veal mince into mine and they were so so tasty.. the sauce was a perfect match and Savoy cabbage cooked in a hot pan so it became crispy and caramelised.. so much flavour and so damn filling!! Definitely will be making these again and again!

    Made this meal tonight and my husband and kids all loved it!!

    Stuart, maybe full fat mince is cheaper in Tesco's but it's not cheaper in my Yorkshire butchers! Voted the best independent butcher in the whole of the UK, Lishman's of Ilkley, he wouldn't know what 5% minced beef was, but he would know where it came from locally and who the farmer was - everything named. Glad I got out of London!

    Yes, ground beef is American for minced beef, and shredded cheese is for us grated cheese.

    Look forward even more so then, Teresa. Thanks!

    Delicious and the leftovers were even better the next day!

    Delicious! Quick and easy. Perfect for meal prep. Will make again and again!

    Use the 20% fat, loads of more flavour, i find that the taste of the lean and extra lean can sometimes be compared to cardboard (especially here in Australia). ALSO the keto diet is high fat, moderate protein and low carbs.

    I made this tonight for dinner and it was GREAT!! My husband loved it. I will definitely be putting this meal in our rotation. The only thing I did different was add some fresh garlic in the burger mixture. It enhanced all the other ingredients. I also fried our cabbage in bacon grease and added bacon to the cabbage while cooking it. The entire meal was so good and satisfying also.

    Do you drain any of the fat before adding the cream and tomato paste?

    That's up to you! Some people do choose to drain the beef fat first.

    Just to let Una know, there are farms in South London! We don’t all have to go to a Tesco! Wouldn’t buy my meat/chicken anywhere other than the local farm 😊

    Amazing recipe! 💗

    Just curious if you can substitute anything else for the cream?

    You could try coconut cream but that might lend a weird taste to the gravy. Other options like almond milk or coconut milk wouldn't have enough fat/thickness.

    This recipe was delicious! I took the patties out the pan before adding the tomato paste/cream and made him burgers. But, I let him try my plate and he loved it! Thanks for this

    I am not sure why that is not scaling correctly. Figure 6oz per serving.
