So I saw a picture of this online and just tried to re create it myself. I went to Stop and Shop and looked for thinly cut meat, which was only like 2.63 for five pieces, which completely blew my mind, what a great cut of meat of a college budget, I also picked up a bundle of asparagus, not as cheap.
Used my skillet with coconut oil of course, and spiced the meat with random spices I found in my cupboard, I think Slap Ya Mama, and blackened spices. I also added chopped onions for the aroma and taste. Meanwhile I coated the asparagus lightly with olive oil and salt and baked them in the oven on a tin foil covered cookie sheet for about 20 minutes.
When the steak was done I took three or four asparagus, and wrapped them with steak, holding them in place with tooth picks.
The steak was not as flexible as I was hoping, and it didn’t cover much of the asparagus. Next time I will look for a little bit different cut of meat, it tasted good, and it was fit my Paleo Diet, so I was happy. My mom liked it too.
So I have a lot of Kale in my garden, and I love kale and wanted new ways to eat it. So I looked for pinned recipes to try. Found a bunch! I wanted kale as a side dish for a grilled chicken meal I was making for My brother and his friend who are staying with me while my parents are away in MI.
I love the fact that I can just walk out to the garden, and get kale.
I chopped my onions tighter, used more garlic, because I love garlic. And had to use water because I had no vegetable broth. I didn’t use any lemon, I wanted an all kale taste baby. And you know what, this recipe wasn’t all to hard at all! It actually turned out looking like this:
But then I got a not so brilliant idea. To then make these,
But I would replace the spinach with my freshly cooked kale! Brilliant I thought! What could go wrong-… oh maybe everything. I had all the ingredients on hand and made the patties as the recipe said but just went easy on the red pepper flakes becuase I am not a spicy girl at all. So the patties formed well as I loaded them into my pan. but THEN. they began to burn, break apart, and become a huge huge mess.
I am guessing that it was the oil that I used to cook the Kale in made the kale not the right consistency to be used in the burgers. Only half of the patties got cooked, and when I say cooked I mean burnt. But it didnt stop me nor my cousin from picking at them and finishing them off.
So all and all, I will cook Kale again, because I enjoyed it as a side dish, but next time I will skip subbing the kale for spinach in these crazy spinach burgers.
