Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% or leaner)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups lightly packed mixed salad greens
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese

Cooking:

  1. Combine blueberries, mustard, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon garlic and Worcestershire in food processor bowl. Pulse on and off until slightly chunky; reserve 1/2 cup of blueberry mixture for topping. Combine remaining blueberry mixture, ground beef, remaining 2 teaspoons garlic, flax, salt and pepper in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

  2. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.  Place patties in skillet; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
