Here are way you can incorporate ghee into your keto lifestyle:
• 1kg mince
• 1 tbsp keto-friendly steak seasoning
• 1 tbsp minced garlic
• 2 tbsp plain mayonnaise (homemade or store bought)
• 1 large yellow onion
• Ghee (at room temperature or slightly lower; enough for about 12 tbsp)
• Keto-friendly burger buns (you will most likely need to make these yourself)
1. Combine mince, seasoning, garlic, plain mayo, and mix together.
2. Form into patties.
3. Create little pockets in the patties and fill each with one tablespoon of ghee, then form back into patties.
4. In a regular or cast iron pan, heat up 2 tbsp ghee over medium-low heat.
5. Add onions and let soften for about two minutes. Push the onions to one side of the pan.
6. Add the patties to the pan and cook on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, making sure they stay flat.
7. When the patties are browned on one side, flip and add 1 tbsp of ghee.
8. Shuffle your onions throughout this process so they remain moist. Once they are cooked to your liking, remove them and set aside.
9. If you prefer, top the burgers with cheese and let melt. When cooked to your liking, assemble burgers with your favourite vegetables and keto-friendly buns, and enjoy.
Mix ghee and cocoa powder in a 1:1 ratio (example: 1/3 cup ghee and 1/3 cup cocoa powder). Add a keto-friendly sweetener (such as stevia) as desired. If you like, you may add sea salt, lime zest, or cinnamon before placing in the fridge to set.
