For the burger patties:

  • 2 pounds 80% lean ground beef use high quality beef that's 20% fat for best results
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3 cloves garlic finely pressed
  • 1 medium onion very finely minced (so it's almost a paste)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond flour (optional, or use less if desired)

For the low carb burger sauce:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 4 tablespoons sugar free ketchup (Primal Kitchen's is great)
  • 1/3 cup sugar free pickles diced
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt (to taste)


For the burger patties:

  • Add the beef to a large bowl, and let it sit for about 10-20 minutes at room temperature.
  • Add the salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, garlic, onion, eggs and almond flour.
  • Mix well with your hands just until combined and all the ingredients are distributed evenly throughout the mixture.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 balls that are exactly the same size. Use a burger press to form the burgers into a patty shape, or use your hands to pack the burgers into evenly shaped patties. Place a small divot in the middle of one side of each of the burgers to prevent them from shrinking while grilling.
  • Chill the patties in the fridge for about 30 minutes before placing them on the grill.
  • Grill over medium-high heat (or fry in a frying pan over medium-high heat) for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature of the burgers reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit (71 Celsius) measured with an instant read thermometer.
  • Remove the burgers from the heat and let them sit for about 5 minutes before serving. This helps them stay juicy and prevents them from falling apart.

For the Low Carb Burger Sauce:

  • Combine all the sauce ingredients and whisk together until well blended. Store in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to serve.
  • Serve the patties on a bed of lettuce with chopped tomatoes, onions, pickles, shredded cheese and the low carb burger sauce.
