Awesome Greek Burger Recipe!
Who doesn’t love a good burger? With that being said, we here at UEFP thought we could step things up with this awesome Greek burger. Put the mustard and ketchup aside and be ready for this alternative twist to an all-time classic.
The mainstream media is finally starting to catch up on this whole grass fed beef phenomenon. While painted as a bad guy in the 80’s and 90’s, research tells us that a lean beef like ground sirloin or ground round has plenty of tools to help you burn fat and build some muscle. The protein found in beef is a complete protein – meaning that it’s not missing any amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that your muscle will need. Beef also contains a specific type of fat called CLA; which has been shown to help the metabolism use body fat as fuel source.
We could go on and on about the benefits but we don’t want you to get too hungry. Get in the kitchen and be ready to have an awesome treat for your summer barbeques or even the big game!
