Easy Primal Salsa Burgers

I can’t take full credit for these primal salsa burgers.  My sister gave me the idea this summer when she told me about her salsa turkey or chicken burgers.  I decided to try them out with some real meat and on the grill.  Now they have become a go-to dinner / lunch.  I’ve really been enjoying bringing burgers to work for my lunch.  They’re easy to re-heat and filling!

Easy Primal Salsa Burgers

  • 1.5 llbs organic grass-fed beef sirloin
  • 1 cup of fresh salsa (mine was from Whole Foods)

Mix the beef and salsa together and form 5 patties.  Throw on the grill on medium heat and cook for 8-10 minutes on one side and then flip.  Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes depending on your desired temperature.  Wah lah! Told you that was easy!

For my sides I cooked up some quinoa and roasted some brussels sprouts with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

This meal was a perfect one to follow the workout I did tonight.  I feel like my week doesn’t start until my Monday workout and dinner…it really helps kick me in to gear for the rest of the week.  

Tonight’s Workout

  • Ran 1 mile
  • Walked for 5 minutes
  • Biked for 5 minutes at a high resistance

Three Rounds for Time: Completed in 8:15

  • 10 clean squats with 40 pound bar
  • 20 box jumps

This WOD was a quick hitter but definitely kicked my butt.  My legs are going to be feeling pretty sore tomorrow!
