BBQ Primal Meal

To kick off the grilling season, here's our attempt at a quick burger dinner. Of course no bun or cheese on these burgers...

1 lb. ground meat (we used bison)
1 avocado
1 bundle asparagus
2 Tbsp. Almonds
Olive Oil (approx. 1-2 Tbsp)
2 garlic cloves, minced
Freshly ground pepper
1-2 tsp. Paprika

Shape meat into hamburger patties. Ours were a 1/3 pounders. Season meat with paprika and freshly ground pepper to your liking. (Optional: could also add bell pepper and onion to meat).

Either in a grilling vegetable pan (which I don't own) or on some sheet of tin foil that are shaped into a pan (fold edges of foil up to hold in liquid). Wash the asparagus and snap off the ends, place in foil. Drizzle the asparagus in olive oil, add garlic, almonds, and freshly ground pepper. Place on a hot grill.

Add burgers to grill. Cook until both are cooked to your liking. We served ours with avocado slices. The whole meal (prep and cooking) took me 20 minutes and you can't beat that! You can top the burgers with salsa if you choose. :)


  1. Could you add your paleo-friendly condiment and then wrap the whole thing in iceberg lettuce leaves so you could pick it up and eat it to make it more "burgery" and less "kinfey-and-forky?" Just an idea. This lifestyle seems awesome, Beth. Super proud! Keep it up!!!

  2. Definitely! I tried that with fajitas and it was great!
