Half Pound Burgers with Pub Sauce

Juicy half pound burgers with a delicious pub sauce! This burger will keep you full all day!

Makes 4 servings, Nutrition Info per Serving (with Pub Sauce): 944 calories, 2g net carbs, 75g fat, 61g protein 73% FAT / 26% PROTEIN / 1% CARBS

Burger Ingredients:

  • 2 lb ground beef, 85% lean
  • 4 tbsp salted butter, melted but not hot
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

Pub Sauce Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp tamari or gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark brown Swerve
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp minced chives
  • 1/4 tsp dried minced garlic
  • 1 tsp pepper

Directions:

To make the Pub Sauce:

  • Whisk all ingredients for Pub Sauce together in a bowl, refrigerate until ready to use. The pub sauce can be made right before making the burgers, but I recommend making a day in advance to really let the flavors come together.

To make the burgers:

  • Mix all burger ingredients in large bowl until well combined. Form into 4 half-pound patties.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a skillet over medium high heat, transfer burgers to skillet and cook for 2 minutes until well browned, flip over and cook additional 2 minutes.
  • Transfer patties to a baking sheet and bake until desired doneness, I like mine at 140 degrees. I use this thermometer from ThermPro for perfectly cooked meat every time!
  • Transfer burgers to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve with Pub Sauce and dill pickle chips.
