Keto burger in a keto bun! Delicious beef meat transformed into a juicy keto burger patty with keto tomato sauce and other keto burger toppings!

Who doesn’t like burgers? I certainly like my keto burgers and I don’t have any problems to prepare them very often.

I tried so many burgers in my life on all sides of the world. 🌎 That’s how I realized what kind of burger I like. First of all, I like great quality meat. 🥩 Meat has to be freshly ground. That’s why as an experienced keto lifestyler you need to find your butcher shop that you are visiting regularly. I visit the same butcher all the time, and I don’t like to change if it’s good.

Best quality meat for every budget

When I was living in a big city, I used to try neighboring butcher shops. When I find the right one – that’s it. I am loyal like a puppy.

Why is that important? Well, it’s great when you establish the relationship of trust with your butcher. When they see that you are coming regularly they give you the freshest meat. You can be sure that you get the real stuff all the time. You might see, they have that glass fridge in front, but they have fresh meat supply coming from the back. I like when my butcher brings me the meat that has just arrived, from the back!

One more thing that might concern you is your budget. When you are regularly visiting “your’ butcher shop you will always be informed about the discounts and actions they have. You can make a stock on sausages you like, dried meat and similar ingredients that could be even frozen for some time!

How to choose meat for the keto beef burger?

When choosing the meat for your homemade keto burgers, don’t take already grounded meat. Ask them to freshly ground it for you. Let them ground it only once! Don’t overground it!

Take the beef meat cuts with more fat, like combination of beef neck and ribs. I usually try to combine 70% lean meat and 30% fat. That’s how your burger will be juicy and tasty. Season the meat just before you start to form the burgers, don’t do it in advance. All parts have to be very fresh.

You will see in this keto burgers recipe, I put some extra ingredients in my burger, like egg and whiskey or gin. Meat is moist and juicy, and greatly stick together when you add the egg and 1 tsp of alcohol. And it influences the taste incredibly. I just like to add that alcohol in my ground meat for burgers, try it for yourself, it’s delicious! 😋

How to make keto burgers?

First bake your keto buns if you plan to eat burger in a bun. Here is my recipe for keto artisan bread without eggs that I use in this recipe, and you can see it in the photos here in this post. From the recipe in the link you will get 4 big keto burger buns. This keto bread has strong bread taste, its taste reminds on a real artisan bread. If you don’t have time but still want to have your keto buns, you can make this keto 90 second bread. It will be also great for your burger bun.

After you prepare your keto buns, prepare keto tomato sauce. Here is the recipe for a delicious keto tomato sauce.

How to prepare the meat for keto burger patties?

Mix the meat, salt, pepper, dried basil, powdered garlic, egg and whiskey together with a spoon. All ingredients should be nicely combined before you form your keto burger patties. It’s the best to form the patties with your hands.

Heat the lard or ghee if using the pan on the stove.

If being so lucky and having a possibility to grill it, make your burgers on a grill.

Burgers will need few minutes on each side to be properly grilled. You will need a little more time if you want to have well done burgers.

After cooking or grilling set your burgers aside to rest for few minutes.

Serve this 0 carb burger patties with iceberg salad or with some good keto bun or keto bread. I was using this keto artisan bread without eggs, only I baked it in a form of keto buns. This keto bread has a strong flavor that reminds on a real artisan bread. If you prefer to eat this burger as a keto bunless burger, I recommend you to use iceberg lettuce. Iceberg lettuce is very crunchy so it goes perfectly with burger.

From the keto toppings you can add to your burger different leafy salads, keto tomato sauce, mayonnaise, slices of cheese, slices of onion or fresh tomatoes.

I believe that you will be very satisfied with this burger, it’s nutritious and juicy, so it will definitely satisfy your taste buds.

Enjoy and let me know how you like it! Share your success in your favorite social networks groups and comment on my blog!
