Naked Kale Burger Saute




Yield 4 Burgers


  • 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
  • 2 stalks curly kale, stems removed and discarded
  • 1 cup diced bell peppers (any color)
  • 1 carrot, grated*
  • Freshly grated ginger root, to taste
  • 1–2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 avocados, pitted, skinned, and sliced
  • ½ stalk parsley, cut into small pieces
  • 4 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2–4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • Pink salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 ounces grass-fed raw cheese, sliced (optional)


Step #1:  Form the beef into 4 burgers.

Step #2:  In a stainless-steel skillet over high heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil. Place the burgers in the hot pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat.

Step #3:  In a separate skillet over high heat, warm the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add the kale and carrot and sauté for 5 minutes, or until the kale is wilted. Stir in the bell peppers, garlic, and ginger.

Step #4:  Arrange equal portions of the kale mixture on 4 individual serving plates and top each with a burger. Arrange equal portions of the avocado slices and cheese, if using, on each burger. Once the meat and vegetables are plated, squeeze ½ lemon over each plate and then drizzle each burger with equal portions of the olive oil.

Step #5:  Season each serving with salt and pepper. Garnish with the parsley and serve!

*Use the carrot only if you are fully keto-adapted, practicing intermittent fasting, and engaging in high-intensity exercise.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This burger characterizes what an incredible fat burning and energy producing dinner meal looks like.  This is approximately 60-70% fat, 20-30% protein and 5-10% carbs.  That will help the body get into a stable ketosis where you are burning fat as your primary fuel source.

Be sure to use all the coconut oil this recipe calls for in the cooking process to protect the meat from becoming damaged by the high heat on the pan.  The oil also should be poured onto the meat dish after the cooking process is finished.

The good fats on this help to provide satiety or the sense of satisfaction after eating.  This reduces the desire to binge or crave sweets after the meal and helps the body to burn fat all night long.

Ginger, garlic and parsley help to stimulate better hydrochloric acid production from the stomach, bile production from the liver/gallbladder and enzyme secretion from the pancreas.  This enhances the digestion and absorption of the nutrients and reduces stress the meal places on the digestive system.

Grass-fed beef provides great protein as well as anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids and CLA to rev up metabolism.  The avocados, kale, olive oil and bell peppers provide tons of unique antioxidants to scavenge free radicals and protect the tissues of the body.

You will love the taste of this and feel amazing due to the unique blend of digestive tonics, antioxidant rich fat sources and clean protein.  A fantastic source of grass-fed beef grass-fed beefand other sustainably raised animal products is Slankers and they will deliver right to your door.
