What You’ll Need:
1 whole romaine heart, thoroughly rinsed and dried
1/3 red onion, diced or thinly sliced
1 pound ground beef, cooked and seasoned with favorite burger seasoning
1 small onion, chopped
1 rounded tblsp of fresh minced garlic
1 tblsp coconut oil
For the Burger Sauce:
1 cup full fat mayonnaise, homemade is preferred
1/2 cup full fat sour cream
Dash of hot sauce or 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV)
1/4 c ketchup, homemade is preferred
1 tblsp Wickles Relish, or your favorite
1 tblsp dried minced onion, more if you want it stronger
2 tsp granulated garlic, mor or less according to your preference
Salt and pepper to taste
Drizzle of mustard
Clean and dry romaine leaves. Set aside.
In a medium pot brown the ground beef with onions and add coconut oil to keep from sticking. Season with your favorite burger seasoning. I just used salt, pepper, a little cajun seasoning, and some of my dad’s favorite grill seasoning for some extra kick. Add garlic once onions are transparent and cook for another minute before removing from heat. Set aside.
Mix all the ingredients for the burger sauce in a medium size mixing bowl. (You can make this up a day ahead to allow the flavors to blend together.) Adjust the spices according to your preference.
Tear the lettuce to your desired amount, usually I use about 4-5 leaves and I like big chunks. Now from here you can “dress” the salad as you wish. Add a spoonful of meat and garnish with the diced red onion, cheese, burger sauce, etc. How you finish this off is up to you! Use your favorite cheeses too. This is why the carb count will vary.
