A simple, quick, delicious meal for week nights when you’re tired. These meat patties and sauce will only take 30 minutes to prepare! And is this ever good! This recipe is one you’ll find yourself making again and again. There’s not enough Sriracha in the sauce to make this too hot for most people, but add it last to taste, as always. This recipe is suited to all phases of Atkins, Keto diets, and Primal Blueprint. Use coconut milk instead of the cream if you follow a Paleo lifestyle.
16 oz. lean ground beef (I used grass-fed 90%)
6 oz. breakfast pork sausage
1 tsp. my homemade Montreal Steak Spice Blend
1 tsp. no-salt lemon pepper (I use Victoria Gourmet brand)
1/4 tsp. Dad’s Poultry Seasoning (or your preferred brand)
4 T. butter, melted
½ c. heavy cream
½ c. water
¼ tsp. xanthan gum (or your preferred thickener)
1/3 c. green onion, chopped fine
2 tsp. Sriracha sauce
Salt to taste
DIRECTIONS: In a large bowl, mix the two meats and 3 spices listed. Form into 4 patties and place in a hot non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown nicely on both sides. Wile they cook, in a small saucepan, melt the butter, add the cream, water and green onion and bring to a light simmer. Dust with the xanthan gum or your favorite thickener and whisk it in, simmering on low heat until the sauce thickens. Add the Sriracha gradually and taste as you go, stopping when it is spicy to your liking. Serve patties with 1/4 of the sauce over each serving.
