California Plum Juicy Burger Recipe is Perfect for Summer!

Summer is here and we all know what that means- BBQ! Nothing says delicious like juicy burgers and our friends at the California Dried Plum Board have created the perfect go-to burger recipe for you- California Dried Plum Juicy Burgers.

If you’re like us and take barbecuing serious then you know there always has to be a secret ingredient that takes your recipe to the next level. For us it’s California dried plums (what d’ya think we’d say?). By adding dried plum puree to our burgers it makes them juicy, moist and flavorful.

If you aren’t sure where to find dried plum puree, no worries, we’ve got you covered. Just combine 1 1/3 cup dried plums and 6 tablespoons hot water into a food processor and voila!

Plum Juicy Burgers

1 pound 93% lean ground beef

1 tablespoon prune baby food or Dried Plum Puree

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 hamburger buns, split and warmed

Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and condiments (optional)

 

Directions

In medium bowl, combine beef and baby food; mix lightly but thoroughly. (For best flavor and appearance, form and cook patties immediately after mixing meat mixture.) Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Heat large nonstick skillet about 2 minutes over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10 to 12 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color, turning once. Season with salt and pepper after turning. Serve burgers in buns with lettuce, tomato and condiments, if desired.

 

Tip: Patties also can be broiled or grilled. To broil, place patties on rack of broiler pan so surface of meat is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 9 to 12 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in centers and juices show no pink color, turning once. To grill, place patties on grid over medium ash-covered coals. Grill 10 to 13 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until not pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once.
