A grilled burger made with fresh ground top sirloin. Amazing!
It’s grilling season! WAHOO! As I’ve said before, we LIVE outside during the spring and summer. So much in fact we have an amazing project we’ve been working on for the past few weeks that I’ll be revealing in the next few days. I know, I’m a tease, but trust me it’s worth the wait. Back to grilling…. burgers are the bomb and this one turned out amazing. A mouthwatering top sirloin burger worthy of royalty. Let me tell you about it.
The patio furniture is out, outdoor dishes bought and the grass is green so it’s time to get outside and enjoy it. It seems each year the winter and snow last sooooo long and I’m chomping at the bit for spring. Well, it’s here now and I’m so ready.
Last year, I planted a garden and it did OK. This year, we did things a bit different and I think it paid off. I carefully arranged my plants according to type and hope it produces a bountiful crop. We planted potatoes, garlic, onion, shallots, squash, tomatoes, peppers and more. Also put together an herb garden with a nice variety of herbs, but lots of basil and rosemary since those are my favorites. If you have a garden, I’d welcome nay tips.
For this burger, I didn’t have anything from the garden ready yet except the lettuce. I can’t wait until I have fresh tomatoes and onion for burgers. I did grind my own meat for the burger. I had some top sirloin in the freezer, so I thawed that out and ground it using my meat grinder attachment on my KitchenAid Stand Mixer, the work-horse of my kitchen. I think taking the time to grind a good quality beef makes a huge difference in the burger. And it did.
