Turmeric Onion Burgers
Yield 4 burgers
- 1 lb of grass-fed ground beef
- 2 tbsp of ground turmeric
- ¼ small red onion diced up
- Pink salt and black pepper to taste
- 1 pasture-raised egg
- Italian herbs (Oregano, basil, thyme) to taste
- 2 tbsps of coconut oil
Step #1: Take ground beef, diced onion and egg and mix them all together. The egg helps provide a gooey substance to stick the onion with the beef.
Step #2: Once mixed, form into 4 circular (1/4 pound) burgers.
Step #3: Heat 2 tbsps of coconut oil on your stainless steel pan until melted.
Step #4: Put burgers onto pan and cook at a low-medium heat until burger is done the way you like. Some of the fat will come out of the burger and be liquid on the pan.

Dr Jockers Comments:
Grass-fed ground beef provides a mega-dose of omega-3 fatty acids and healthy saturated fat for building healthy cell membranes. Strong cell membranes are the key to supercharging your energy stores and that begins with a healthy blend of saturated and omega 3 fatty acids.
Additionally, this burger has CLA which boosts metabolism and destroys cancer cells. I cooked this burger to medium done to make it taste good but maintain as much nutritional value as possible. The longer the burger cooks the more nutritional value is lost.
Turmeric is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent that helps to decrease pain levels, improve liver detoxification, destroy cancer cells and improve skin health. Adding in black pepper helps to improve the absorption of the curcuminoid anti-oxidants within the turmeric.
