Smash burger with green bean fries and chipotle mayo

We're (s)mashing things up around here. We want to show the world that a bunless burger is not a boring burger; it's all in how you serve it. We like our burger patties smashed in the pan for a crispy finish, with green bean fries and a generous dollop of chipotle mayo. Does keto fast food get any better than this? We don't think so!

Instructions

    Smash burger

  1. Divide the ground beef into two balls per serving, about 4 oz. (110 grams) each.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over high heat.
  3. When the pan is smoking hot, place the meatballs in the pan and press them down with a grill press, spatula, or the bottom of a glass, until less than 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side or until the burgers have a nice brown crust.
  5. Green bean fries

  6. Wash and trim the green beans. Pat them dry with a paper towel (to avoid oil splatters).
  7. Heat a large skillet with oil over medium-high heat.
  8. Add the green beans to the pan and fry for about 5 minutes. They should retain their fresh, natural crunch!
  9. Place the green beans on a plate with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Season with salt before serving.
  10. Chipotle mayo

  11. Mix the mayonnaise, tomato paste, and chipotle powder in a small bowl. Add additional seasoning to taste — more chipotle means a spicier sauce.
  12. Serve right away or let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes or more to allow the flavors to develop.

Tips

Love cheese? After flipping the burger, place a slice of cheddar cheese on top of the patty and let it melt.

Why not season your burgers with smokey chipotle chili and garlic powder? Or mix a dollop of dijon mustard and herbs to the ground beef before rolling them into balls.
