1 lb. Ground Beef (I like 80/20 or 85/15 for burgers)
1 med onion, sliced ¼ inch thick
½ tsp olive oil
4 slices cheddar or other cheese (optional)
For the Bowls:
Lettuce of choice (I like butter lettuce or romaine)
Cherry tomatoes or sliced tomato
1 (15 oz) package baked frozen sweet potato fries
Ketchup, mustard or other favorite condiments
Divide ground beef into 4 portions and shape each into a 1-inch thick patty. Handle the meat as little as possible for the juiciest burgers. Season each patty with salt, pepper, and steak seasoning on both sides. Refrigerate patties until ready to grill.
Thinly slice an onion and toss in oil. Spread onto a piece of foil or into a grill basket.
Heat grill to medium heat. Place onion on the grill over indirect heat, stirring occasionally. Grill burgers 8-10 minutes over direct heat, flipping once halfway through. They are done when the internal temperature reaches 160°F. Top burgers with cheese (if using) during the last 1-2 minutes of grilling.
While burgers cook, cook the sweet potato fries according to package directions and cut veggies for the bowls.
Once burgers are done, assemble bowls. Start with a bed of lettuce in each of 4 bowls, then add a beef burger patty to each. Top each bowl as desired with tomatoes, pickles, grilled onions, avocado, and sweet potato fries.
Handle the beef as little as possible when shaping patties to keep the burgers tender and juicy.
Keep the beef cold before grilling to help the patties keep their shape on the grill.
No grill? You can cook the beef burgers in a skillet on the stove over medium heat.
For a low-carb bowl, feel free to leave off the sweet potato fries.
If you’d rather use regular fries or tater tots, go for it! You can also make my grilled sweet potato wedges if you’d rather not turn on the oven.
Switch up the greens to suit your taste. Try spinach, kale or arugula in place of lettuce!
Get as creative as you want with toppings. Try grilled mushrooms or peppers, guacamole, or your favorite dressing.
We’ve even made these topped with a fried egg – it’s delicious!
