Tight on time but craving a burger? Ditch the grill and grab a steamer; mini burgs are ready in 5 minutes in the microwave. Turn burger toppings into a nutrient-dense salad to get your daily dose of veggies all in one, delicious bowl. The best part? This recipe is totally gluten free!
1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
2 beefsteak tomatoes
6 cups leafy greens
1⁄3 cup grated cheddar cheese
Toppings (optional): pickles, chopped red onion, yellow mustard
- In a large bowl, combine beef and seasoning. Form into 12 equal balls and place in Multipurpose Steamer. Slightly flatten each ball. Cover and microwave on high 5 min.
- Meanwhile, chop tomatoes and cucumber. Divide veggies and greens between four bowls.
- When burger bites are cooked, top steamer with Multipurpose Tray and strain excess liquid.
- Top each bowl with three burger bites, cheese, and 1 tbsp sauce. Add additional toppings, if desired.
Streamline prep and skip the burger bites—just crumble ground meat into a steamer and cook as directed above. Pro tip: use Ground Meat Separator to break up meat halfway through cooking.
