This easy recipe makes ground beef taste like really good lean brats.
My dear daughter-in-law came up with this recipe. She wanted to add healthy herbs and spices to ground beef. And the result was amazing.
Save money, be healthy, and enjoy great savory burgers or meatballs.
Savory Ground Beef that Tastes like Bratwurst or Pork Sausage
To a family pack of lean ground beef (about 4-5 pounds) add:
1 teaspoon – turmeric
1/2 teaspoon – fenugreek
3 tablespoons – dry chives
1 and 1/2 teaspoons – garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon – cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon – coriander powder
Black pepper and salt to taste
Mix well and form burgers, meatballs, etc.
If this makes more than you want to eat right away, just freeze uncooked patties or meatballs to use later. Nice to have on hand for quick meals!
The possibilities! Breakfast sausage; meatball sliders; meatballs for spaghetti; in meatloaf; cooked loose for casseroles, pasta sauce, sloppy Joe’s, or chili, lasagna; and even in a hot dog shape! And in any recipe that calls for pork sausage when you want to keep the fat content down but not lose any flavor.
Try this. You won’t be sorry!
