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.
- Ran 1 mile

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