Bunless Burgers and Green Beans in a Balsamic-Dijon Vinaigrette

The thing I love most about burgers is that you can change a few of the ingredients and get a totally different variation on the classic dish. Today, I made juicy chipotle burgers. The sweet and sour balsamic-Dijon vinaigrette on the green beans made a good pairing with the smoky burgers- here’s how I made them!

Burgers:
1 lb 85% lean beef (this will give you a juicier burger than 90-95% lean)
Half of a small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
About 2 tbsp Panko bread crumbs
About half a tsp salt
About a tsp soy sauce
About 1.5-2 tsp smoky chipotle Tabasco sauce (this stuff is key… And super bomb- put it on anything)

Process:
Mix it all together!
Make patties!
Cook them!
Done!

Green Beans:
Steam the green beans, drain them, sprinkle some salt over them, and pour the vinaigrette over them. Toss in some toasted sliced almonds for crunch.. And flare – so fancy.

Vinaigrette- whisk together 1tsp Dijon mustard, about 1/4 cup olive oil, about 1 tsp honey, and about 2 tsp balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy!
