Red meat, including beef burgers, tends to be overlooked as part of a nutritious diet; but moderate amounts fit perfectly into a balanced diet. Beef burgers made with lean mince packs your meal with nutrients, like iron, vitamin B-12 and protein.
Why are these nutrients so important? Iron carries oxygen to cells, tissues and organs and red meats, such as beef burger, are some of the best sources of iron. Vitamin B-12 is essential for the production of new red blood cells. Without adequate B-12, red blood cells form abnormal shapes, resulting in decreased oxygen delivery throughout your body.
Lean beef burgers are also rich in protein which gives structure to cells, builds lean muscle mass and acts as a backup source of energy when carbohydrates and fat are not available.
So, if you’re a generally healthy person, a beef burger once in a while may have some benefits.
Non Evans Beef Burgers Recipe
And our guest writer Non Evans MBE agrees. Here’s what she has to say:
“This is one of my favourite meals I have cooked since getting my meat from Hugh Phillips butchers. I have never been a fan of beef burgers in my life but check these out…!”
Extra lean Hugh Phillips mince meat
Herbs (fresh if possible) Fresh Brazil is the best!
A slice of Mozzarella cheese.
And if you fancy some black pudding!
If avoiding bread use wholemeal toasted pitta, if not healthy wholemeal brown rolls with pumpkin seeds, toasted.
Cook all on a George Foreman grill.
You can see the results for yourself!
