Ground Beef & Plantain Patties
Serves: Yields 15 patties
  • 454g (1lb) grassfed ground beef
  • 2 large very ripe plantains
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ tsp Himalayan salt
  • ½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • 2 dried birds eye chili, crushed (or ½ tsp dried chili flakes)
  • 12-15 Brazil nuts, coarsely chopped
  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer add all the ingredients and mix with the paddle attachment for 1 or 2 minutes until very well incorporated and slightly "fluffy".
  2. Heat a generous amount of coconut oil in a skillet set over medium heat. When pan is hot enough, scoop about ΒΌ cup of the mixture directly into the pan and press down with a spoon or fork to flatten and shape the meat into a disc. You could also shape the patties with your hands before adding them to the pan, but since the mixture is rather soft, I think it's easier to do it this way.
  3. Cook the patties 3 or 4 at a time, for approximately 4-5 minutes per side, until they get nice and crispy and golden brown. Keep the cooked patties in a warm oven while you work on the rest of them.
  4. Serve with a generous dollop of full fat coconut milk if desired (I strongly recommend it!)
