Donna's Beef and Veggie Burgers

Make your burger moist and nutritious too! By adding onions, garlic, carrots, and seasoning, burgers made from very low fat meat can be moist and flavorful.

1 teaspoon canola oil

1/2 cup chopped onions

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon water or broth

1/2 cup chopped carrots

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1 tablespoon steak sauce

1 pound ground beef, 95 percent lean

In a small saucepan, heat oil. Cook onions and garlic over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add water and carrots. Cover pan and cook 10 ? 15 minutes or until carrots are tender. Spoon carrot mixture into small food processor. Add salt, pepper, thyme, and steak sauce. Blend until smooth. In a large bowl, combine carrot mixture and ground beef. Mix with a large spoon until blended. Form into 4 patties. Grill or cook in a skillet over medium- low heat until completely done. Watch carefully to prevent burning.

Note: If the burgers were made from 75% lean ground beef, the calories would be 340 calories and 23 grams of fat per burger.
