The Beauty in the Beef

For the love of South Dakota Beef

#NationalHamburgerDay- Build a Better Burger!


If you haven’t heard it by now, we’re happy to say “Happy National Hamburger Day!”  We don’t feel as though a designated day to enjoy a juicy burger is necessary, but we won’t say no to it either! 🙂 Burgers are a part of Americana. It’s what we do and it’s who we are! Farmers and ranchers across the country pour their heart and souls into the beef they produce, assuring that we can feel confident putting a safe and wholesome product on the table to nourish our families.

Burgers often get pegged as an indulgence meal or guilt-food.  While there are certainly some versions out there that can be, burgers can also be a very healthy, light and nutrient-rich meal!  We all have our grilling methods and go-to toppings for burgers, but here are a few steps to consider the next time you’re building your burger.

Step 1: Select your Ground Beef patty.  Try 93% lean or leaner Ground Beef, plus an egg white and a dash bread crumbs.
Step 2: Mix ingredients together and form into patties.  Add some mini sliders for the kids, too!
Step 3: Place onto the grill at medium heat.  Cook for 7-9 Minutes for 1/2 inch thick patties, flipping only once!
Step 4: Grab your meat thermometer and check the internal cooking temperature by inserting it horizontally into the thickest part of the burger (medium 160°).
Step 5: Try and avoid pressing down onto the burgers- savor the juicy flavor!
Step 6: Choose fresh condiments to top off our perfected patty! Some favorites in our house; garden tomatoes, sliced avocado, red onion and jalapeños! Cutting back on carbohydrates?  Grab your fork and enjoy your burger bun-less or use a butter lettuce or romaine leaf and make a delicious and refreshing wrap!
