  • 1 medium organic zucchini, ends removed {peel if you prefer, you'll notice I don't} and grated
  • 1 lb grass-fed and -finished ground beef {your protein should be at room temperature, don't pull straight out of the fridge and cook}
  • 1 tsp sea salt of choice


Preparation time 3mins
Cooking time 11mins


Step 1

In a medium bowl, gently mix together the zucchini and beef. Do not overwork or the burgers may be tough.
Divide your burger mixture into quarters {eighths if making sliders}. Form each section into patties about one-inch thick. Make an indentation in the top center each patty.
Heat a cast iron grill pan over medium-high heat with your fat of choice.
Season each patty with salt before placing in the hot pan and let cook for 3-4 minutes.
Flip and finish cooking to your liking. Grass-fed beef is naturally leaner and cooks quicker.
Serve immediately.
