Mediterranean Burger

Low Carbohydrate Diet

You use ground sirloin for your pattie in this Mediterranean Burger. Add green olives, tomato slice, goat cheese and a bit of chopped onions.

Ground sirloin is meat coming exclusively from the sirloin sub primal section of beef which has been ground. Sirloin is a better tasting and leaner form of beef than ground hamburger.

4 slices bacon
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 can mushroom pieces, drained and finely chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound bulk pork sausage
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute onion in drippings until tender. Crumble bacon and add with mushrooms to skillet and set aside.

Meanwhile, combine beef, pork, cheese, pepper, garlic powder and steak sauce in a large bowl. Shape into 16 patties. Divide bacon mixture and place over eight of the patties.
