  • 1 lb Lean ground sirloin
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger root
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  • Combine beef, bread crumbs, onions, light soy sauce, ginger root, egg, sea salt and pepper in a bowl.
  • Make 3-4 patties that are 3/4 inch thick.
  • Barbecue over medium-high heat on lightly oiled grill for 5 to 7 minutes. Healthy Recipes recommends you use a meat thermometer (digital) inserted sideways into the centre of each pattie. Each pattie must be 160 degrees F (71 degrees C) before it is considered cooked.

Now comes the fun part! Toppings for sirloin burgers are:

  • Pineapple Pepper Salsa-using small pineapple pieces, a sweet red pepper chopped, 1/2 cup minced red onion, adding 2 tbsp of lime juice and extra-virgin olive oil. Then add chopped fresh cilantro, and freshly ground pepper.
  • English Cucumber Special-Mix 2 tbsp thinly sliced English cucumber, 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill, and 2 tbsp rice vinegar, and lastly, sweet chipotle sauce.
  • Use crisped romaine lettuce on top of the base of the sirloin burger.
  • Now this is what we call a “real whopper sirloin burger.”
  • For those who like mustard on their burgers, add a mix of 1/4 cup Dijon mustard and 2 tbsp of wasabi paste.
  • SBcanning feels this is an excellent meal in itself. Use whole grain hamburger buns, and for fun add on a platter beefsteak tomatoes, roasted red peppers. The sky is the limit when creating burgers.
  • Healthy Recipe serves 4.
