After work I did a quick workout, staying motivated is they key. I'm glad I got a workout in, it always puts me in a better mood since it good for releasing endorphins. My workout was pretty intense for only being 30 minutes. I used the Random setting on the StairMaster and upped my resistance level up to 10. No strength training today, saving my strength for tomorrow.
After my workout, I decided since it was so beautiful out, it was a perfect day to grill some burgers. Fortunately, more and more stores are starting to carry grass-fed beef. Even though I shop at Whole Foods, it's nice to know you have options when something isn't always available at one store. Grass-fed beef is soo much better than anything I've ever tasted. I'm not even a huge red meat eater, but I can truly taste the difference, as my sister would say, the don't taste "burger-y," or they don't taste "processed" to be exact.
Sadly, I didn't make it upstairs to the roof, but we still opted to use our George Foreman, and dinner was nothing less than amazing! B said it was probably the best burgers he ever had, that put a huge smile on my face.
I don't have an exact recipe for these burgers, mainly because they were so simple...
Pepper Crusted Burgers
1 lb grass fed beef (85/15)
Steak Seasoning for creating crust
Mix beef and salt in a large bowl and form into 4 even patties. (Tip: I used the lid of a jar to get the patties even)
Pour steak seasoning onto a small dish, and dredge patty in seasoning, on both sides. Grill for about 10 minutes, until juices run clear.
Enjoy with your favorite salad or burger bun.
