Garlic Bean Sprout Beef Burgers

Garlic Bean Sprout Beef Burgers – another quick and easy meal that can be ready in minutes – is low cost and takes you up a notch from just a plain beef patty.

One nice thing is that  they are juicy and actually taste pretty good hot or cold – so it might be something you want to include in a bag lunch or take on a picnic.

Some people like to make them smaller just so that they will be more convenient as a finger food.

Garlic Bean Sprout Beef Burgers


1 1/2 pound / 700g lean ground beef
1 egg
1 teaspoon each pepper and garlic powder, to taste
1 1/3 cup bean sprouts


1. Break up the beef into a large mixing bowl.  

2. Add the egg,  pepper  and garlic powder .  Mix together with your hands until completely blended.  

3. Add the bean sprouts (I prefer to chop them first) and mix until the bean sprouts are distributed throughout the meat mixture.  

4. Form the mixture into desired size patties.  

5. Place a scant amount of water, just enough to cover the bottom, in a large skillet.  Place over medium heat.  

6. Place the patties into the skillet. (Or on grill) Brown 10 minutes.  

7. Turn the patties over.  Continue to brown another 8 minutes or until the patties are cooked through and done to your liking.  

Test meat to an internal temperature of 140F

Options: Add up to 1 medium onion, finely chopped and sautéed onion.

Substitute 1 clove fresh garlic, finely chopped or minced in place of the garlic powder.

Add up to ½ cup fine breadcrumbs. If you add dry breadcrumbs, add 1 Tablespoon water. If the breadcrumbs are soft (from fresh bread),  you  may not need any additional water.

Best Pennywise Tip: This is an excellent choice to extend the meat and fill up a hungry family. Make sure, if this is the protein serving, that each person gets enough protein. THis can also be done by, for instance, serving a bean salad or green salad where you add red kidney beans (or other favorite) to boost the protein.
